60 + Years Submission

We were invited to submit a design for 60+ Years Project setup by designer Zara Arshad. Here are some sneek peeks of our submission, literally based on the idea of freedom of speech we laid out a grid of open black on white speech marks on one side of a picket and a white on black closed marks on the reverse. There are 26 speech mark styles each taken from a font corresponding to a letter of the alphabet. You can find out more about the project and the contributors here.


Frost* Typographic Sculpture




Sculptures by the sea is a fantastic outdoor exhibition which is currently taking place in Sydney along the popular walk between Coogee and Bondi beach. I was lucky enough to enjoy some of the fantastic pieces at last years event but I just got an email from Frost design who have this year got in on the act with this large format typographic solution, see more at Vince’s blog. Using the coastline handrail as a grid they have completed a quote form Lewis Carroll’s introductory poem to Alice in Wonderland, All in the Golden Afternoon. I particularly like the low-fi approach using a length of typical Frost orange material wrapped around the handrail. If your around Sydney I recommend checking it out.

Freitag ‘More than a Bag’ Exhibition




Some cool new sunnies and iPhone holders from the lovely folks at Freitag, also came across some photography of the ‘More than a Bag’ exhibition currently at Shizuoka in Japan. Looks great, think its time for a new Freitag bag actually…

Yayoi Kusuma Exhibition



I visited the Yayoi Kusuma exhibition at the Sydney MCA yesterday and was very impressed. Lots of very interesting pieces and by all accounts a very interesting lady. If your in Sydney its on until June 8th, free entry and well worth checking out.

Taken by Storm


I went to the opening of ‘Taken by Storm’ an exhibition showcasing the work of legendary music album cover creator Storm Thorgerson last night at the Global gallery in Paddington, Sydney. If anyone is around they should head down there its fantastic and on until Jan 13th. I also had the opportunity to sit and chat with Storm and he’s an inspirational figure and a jolly nice chap top boot. If your not familiar with his work (you will be) check out the exhibition here

Sculptures by the Sea


I have added some photos to my flickr of the recent Sculptures by the Sea exhibition all along the amazing Sydney coast from Coogee to Bondi beach. The walk itself was amazing and complimented by some fantastic sculptures in the surrounding environment including this Andy Warhol inspired piece.
