New Suburban Stories

Our design work for the Sandridge Beach Wall (in collaboration with landscape architect, Andrew Brophy), has featured in a chapter of a book titled New Suburban Stories published by Bloomsbury. Melbourne writers Hannah Lewi and Caroline Jordan describe the project as deeply rooted in local place and memory within its context as a memorial to Port Melbourne’s historic piers that recycles the remnants of a defunct and no longer tangible industry.

The Studio Has Moved

After 16 years in the Richmond based Dover Street warehouse, the studio has moved to the Meat Market in North Melbourne. Part of the Arts House complex run by the City of Melbourne, the Meat Market houses a numbers of writers, artists, architects and arts organisations as well regular theatre and arts based performances in its theatre spaces downstairs. An exciting change on the opposite side of town with not quite so many coffee shops to explore – however the ‘backyard’ has had a visiting foodie called fancy hanks cooking Texan ribs and other hefty meat dishes on weekends.

Empty Kids

The March issue of Desktop magazine has a retrospect article called Artifacts. Eight Australian graphic designers were invited to choose a piece of design that inspires them and perhaps influenced the design journey taken thus far. I chose a screen-printed poster titled Empty Kids designed by Marie McMahon at Redback Graphix in 1987. A truly magnificent piece of design, the poster is part of the National Gallery of Australia collection and can be viewed here.
