Branding developed for small bar Alleyway hidden away off George Street, Sydney CBD. The owners wanted the design to reflect the welcoming, family run atmosphere. Real family photos, inky stamps, hand cut shapes and wood textures help give the authentic, back-street gathering vibe. It aims to entice those who want a little escapism from the commercial city. The logo was adapted from Avenue Group’s pre-existing umbrella brand. It fits with the grittier, less corporate look and feel. I  rolled it out to a range of collateral including menus, table numbers, coasters, social media, aprons, opening invitations, posters and more! A great place for a drink 🙂


The Butcher Bird

Branding developed for a lovely café in Petersham. The hand drawn illustration compliments the hand made pastries and fresh, locally sourced food. Clean, simple typography leaves the colour of the food and warm surroundings to remain prominent. The use of recycled kraft paper where possible reflects the owner’s strong support of environmental sustainability.

Absolutely Beethoven

Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s 2014 Absolutely Beethoven
Concert featuring new Chief Conductor, David Robertson.

The design brief required a focus on Beethoven’s influence over the musical program, as well as advertise David Robertson’s first concert as chief conductor. Each letter of Beethoven’s name contains an image; starting with a childhood portrait, the series continues through to a posthumous statue and evokes the immortal breadth of the composer’s work.

STRAVINSKY Symphony in Three Movements
ADAMS Absolute Jest
BEETHOVEN Symphony No.7

“A vibrant, dancing symphony by a classical master gives us the foundation. But Beethoven’s Seventh is there for another reason as well: John Adams’ Absolute Jest takes its inspiration (and its musical ideas!) from the late Beethoven quartets. It’s like Beethoven that’s been passed through a hall of mirrors, says Adams, and the result is a turbo-charged showpiece for string quartet and orchestra. And Stravinsky enters the picture because he, too, liked to take the music of other composers and make it his own.”
