Graphic design and visual communication

SERVICES

We do more than just make things look good, we make them work.

VISUAL COMMUNICATION

Design is more than just how something looks, it is also about how it is used and understood. As a client, we work with you to find the best way to develop and visually communicate your brand and then build your brand identity through your logo, business card, brochures, website, copy, advertising and social channels.

MARKETING & ADVERTISING

There are many ways to market your business and your brand and advertising is just one piece of the marketing puzzle. We develop marketing and advertising campaign strategies that meet your specific objectives – from brand awareness to promotion of your product or service – and lead your customer to a desired end-state.

DIGITAL PRESENCE

Websites are important in establishing your digital presence. A great website – one which is easy to use, has relevant information, considered design and imagery – is crucial to maintaining and growing your presence online. We work with you to design and build websites that are invaluable to your target audience and central to the success of your business.

WORDSMITHING

Just like graphic design and visual communication, language plays an important role in building the right perception of your business. Your copy should complement visual design and further define your brand, product or service. We create, curate, proof and edit written communication for print and online to tell your story and state what sets you apart from your competitors.

IDEAS

This is truly where we come in to our own: conceptualising, creating and executing new brands and brand identity, marketing and advertising campaigns, as well as promotional activities. Our broad industry experience and genuine zest for building campaigns means we are well-placed to help you take your brand and brand message to market.

TEAM

There is no “I” in Team… Unless you’re really bad at spelling.

DAVID STEDMAN

CREATIVE DIRECTOR – OWNER

With his great grandfather inventing the iconic Australian confectionery Minties and their accompanying catchphrase “it’s moments like these…” you might say (although not scientifically proven) it is the sugar that runs in David’s blood that allows him to think outside the norm when it comes to innovative concepts for growing business.

With a balance of imagination and practicality, David’s creative instincts and corporate understanding allows him the ability to spark a creative firestorm while never losing sight of a company’s business needs.

“No two companies are the same and no two brands should be the same; they each have their own people, purpose, culture and feel and it is our job to relay that essence on paper, screen and any damn thing you want”.

MELISSA BRUHNS

ART DIRECTOR

Having moved from the perfect weather of Queensland to experience the even better life of New South Wales (a person from New South wales wrote this), Melissa has the ability to remove the sugar and hyperactivity from David’s ideas and get them to work for the client.

In to her 5th year of design, it is Melissa’s natural artistic talents mixed with an acquired experience in business that gives her the nous to create meaningful design that not only looks great but tells a business’s story while concisely relaying relevant information.

Her inquisitive and intuitive nature, teamed with her friendly disposition will draw out and interpret exactly what your creative campaign needs.

“Creative design is not only about developing a visually appealing and tangible product for the client, but it’s also a matter of problem solving. As soon as I get asked to do a design, my first question is why? Everything else that matters will flow from this”.

From her year’s spent living in Japan (fighting the good fight against bad Engrish), combined with over 8 years’working in the media industry (AAP, ninemsn and Nine Entertainment Co.), Marianne understands the nuance of communication and language and the fundamental part it plays to the success of a business.

Safe to say that Marianne Loves words; but most importantly she loves the challenge of and the rewards that come with finding the right words, tone, meaning and colour to convey the most effective message to the desired audience.

“In the words of Dr. Seuss, ‘Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple’. I see my job as having to ask the questions, to guide and also be guided, so as to reach the client’s desired outcome”.

AARON HENDERSHOT

PRINT GURU, XYZ MEDIA

From time to time rumours emerge around the office that Aaron’s past may have involved stints as a bouncer, international smuggler and gun runner, world traveller, gridiron player, and revolutionary.

One thing is for sure though; what Aaron lacks in accurate biographing skills he makes up for in his ability to produce compelling pieces of print.

Never one to be content with simply putting ink on paper, Aaron excels at finding unique and cost effective ways to deliver creative print solutions that connect with its intended audience.

“Paper is awesome… but it can be dangerous. Always be prepared for papercuts”.
