Nice Coffee Sacks!



I spotted these lovely old coffee sacks for sale in a shop in Newtown the other day. Nice typography style, would look great as a coffee shop branding system. In fact I might even put one together so watch this space! Photos added to my ever-growing Signs of Sydney Flickr set.

There Update!

There (the agency im working for here in Sydney) have recently completed some nice new projects and we have added some images to our new blog thats worth checking out. 

Aero Bubbles Ad


Loving this ad for Aero – Check it out here (takes a little while to download but its worth it) Directed by Ty Evans and the skater is Bob Burnquist . You can also see a making of film here .Glad they resisted the typical Jose Gonzalez style soundtrack too!

Nice Type!


A lovely piece of hand rendered type for my blog by my friend and fellow There designer Jon Zhu. Watch out for his new website coming soon 😉
