Our design eye is wide and varied. Here our some of our favourite things, thoughts and people.

Louis Reith

Art + Design

These lovely ‘collages in found books’ by Netherlands artist Louis Reith prove that it’s ok to see things in black and white sometimes.

Super City Guide

Websites

When Covid broke loose and everything started to turn strange we directed our (nervous?) energy towards making a little website to help Freo people keep up-to-date with local businesses adapting to the COVID-19 situation.

Anyone visiting the site could add a business to the map and note how the businesses they were submitting had adapted (eg offering takeaway, delivery). All kinds of local businesses submitted to the Super City Guide, and all in all the site ended up with 99 pins on the map! All from community and business submission.

Fun project – but let’s hope we don’t have to use this guide again any time soon 😛

Brutal breaks

Art + Design

The weirdest of times call for comfort in music, art and architecture. These brutalist masterpieces seem fitting right now #covid19

*Brutalism, also known as Brutalist architecture, is a style that emerged in the 1950s and grew out of the early-20th century modernist movement. Brutalist buildings are characterised by their massive, monolithic and ‘blocky’ appearance with a rigid geometric style and large-scale use of poured concrete.

A new site for us

FRESH! That’s how we’re feeling.

Art + Design

Fremantle’s own Tom Muller has a couple of exhibitions around town at the moment, including MONOLITH SCORES at AGWA.

Ariel Lee – Landscapes

Art + Design

American landscapes evoke nostalgia in most, even if you’ve never been, maybe we’ve all just watched enough movies? Southern Californian artist Ariel Lee captures these places and spaces with her colourful modern brushstrokes. Ok – ready for that roadtrip now!

Perth-based NeuroScientific are on the cutting edge of biopharmaceutical research, with a revolutionary treatment that could finally hold the answer to neuronal degeneration – responsible for such diseases as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases amongst others.

It was an honour 😇 to be selected to work on this project, and very exciting to be just a small part of such an important and ground-breaking treatment.

The design is super mod with *totally awesome* custom illustrations by London’s very own Harriet Stansall 👾

You can see the site in motion here.

With the firms impressive portfolio of retail architecture projects this wasn’t a hard task.
