The My Circus My Monkeys project is a gameplay process using a set of fifty-four cards that helps people find meaning, clarity and focus in a critical stage of their lives—particularly as they enter or contemplate the ‘post-retirement’ or ‘protirement’ journey. We worked with Michael and Ludmila from Edgeware, and Nick from FutureWe to create a brand design, custom illustrations, and design of the card set.

The Queensland Corvette Club required a logo to be developed for the 31st Corvette Nationals event. Since the club is hosting the event in their home state, part of the brief was to depict a Gold Coast regional feel and to highlight the theme ‘cruising in the sunshine’ for the 2019 meet.

There are many elements that make up an organisation’s brand identity including a logo, colours, fonts and messaging. But one part that often survives throughout a brand’s lifetime—even through multiple brand refreshes—is the name. Ultimately a name should be memorable while providing meaning and context to a business; complementing the rest of the brand design.
Back when I was doing my honours year at University, I came across a story from a previous honours student who was also majoring in corporate identity. She was writing her thesis on how a rebrand would affect the employees of a company, with the hypothesis that the new look would help breathe new life and energy into the employees while creating better unity that would in turn increase job satisfaction and productivity. But as it turned out, things hadn’t gone that way.
