Dianna Wells founded DWD in 1994. Based in North Melbourne at The Meat Market, the studio focuses on the design of identities, publications and digital projects for cultural and corporate clients.

Our collaborative approach results in producing work that is memorable, strategic, carefully planned and meticulously crafted, in a visual language that clearly brands a client’s products, and inspires and informs its audience.

DWD collaborates with a number of other design-related specialists to assist with various projects, such as photographers, writers, editors, web-developers and printers.
