I have been working for Gowrie Victoria since mid-2015, doing various marketing items for them, including their Semester calendars, annual reports and sundry signage and flyers. The brand has evolved a little in that time, moving away from the grey towards a purple contrasting colour for the orange.
Drummond Street Services
I have been working for Drummond Street Services as their main design provider since 2015… this involves working on flyers, training materials, signage, some web and social media support, annual reports etc.
It has also involved working on books, support for app design and as their services have increased, new branding for sub-programs has been a big part of the role.

I worked in-house for OET for 12 months (on a maternity leave contract) which involved typesetting their tests and related materials.
I have been doing freelance work for their marketing department in recent years. This work mainly involves producing collateral for print, however, I have recently redesigned their practice books for test candidates which was a huge job, still ongoing!
Hygienic IT Australia
Hygienic IT Australia is a startup company working to keep Australian office environments more hygienic and safer for employees. I was brought on board to design the logo and corporate brand from the beginning and have been working to produce all of their print materials over the last 6 months.
Tulla Widening project
Over 2016 and 2017 I worked on several marketing/comms pieces for Vicroads – Tulla Widening Project, including corflutes, posters, information sheets for stakeholders, signage and flyers.
I was also tasked with drawing the maps and explanatory graphics for ongoing roadworks in these collateral items.
Design of a postcard to notify the community of impending works.
Information sheet for the community around impending roadworks and subsequent traffic condition changes.
Notification of timelines and impending traffic condition changes.
Flyer outlining information around road works for wide dissemination.
Information for the community around timelines and impending traffic changes.
Creation of a map showing traffic change conditions for marketing materials.
Corflute design for a veiwing event.
Flyers with information about the noise walls and for distribution at a viewing event.
Verzon | Microcote
When I started working for this family run business they were called Verzon… recently I helped them rebrand themselves as Microcote. I was also working for the UK company BioClad, helping them brand their new Australian franchise. Many of the marketing materials involved cross promoting BioClad and Verzon and more recently Microcote.
I am slowly becoming an expert in antimicrobial surfaces!
I worked in-house at ECMS for 2 years, doing all of their marketing and design work. This involved both the umbrella branding for ECMS and also individual branding for the 40+ early childcare services that they managed.
Click here for a case study involving the development of a revised brand for the ECMS/Museum Victoria co-partnered event Romp’n’Stomp.
I do not work directly for Slimline Warehouse, however, as they don’t have an art department they have been referring their clients to me when they receive artwork that does not meet their printing specifications.
This work involves banners of all shapes and sizes, flags, A-boards and corflutes and conference backdrops and podiums. A good understanding of image scale and resolution is important and I am required to redraw logos far more often than should be the case in a digitally savvy world!
Some of the businesses I’ve worked with have also requested my services for business cards and other marketing and stationery items. It’s always good to be able to carry a design across different areas of a business.
I have worked with some really interesting businesses via Slimline referrals… I love finding out how people make a living all over Australia!
I worked for Liuzzi Property Management for 2 years doing all of the design work for their three shopping centres (Milleara, Gisborne and the Hive). This work was constant and varied and required a slightly different approach for each shopping centre.
Over the two years the style evolved as the Marketing Manager tried to get the branding and the demographic more aligned. Much of the work required adhering to brand guidelines for multimedia characters, which did not necessarily align with the branding for the centres.
City of Stonnington
I did some work for the City of Stonnington in 2014… this involved refreshing the design of their council newsletter and a couple of marketing campaigns for events in the area.
Hurstbridge Primary School
I have been working on Hurstbridge Primary School’s marketing material for several years, including a reworking of their logo and brand in 2017.
the Pink Lady Art Show
When a close friend decided to write a book about breast cancer with her 5 year old son, I offered to design it for print. This book is one of my favourite things I have designed.
Some years later that same friend started an art show to raise funds for breast cancer research, and I donated all the design work for this huge bayside charity event from 2009 until 2012. This involved putting together a 40 page catalogue, all signage and promotional materials and any other jobs required for the event.
It was an honour to be involved with such a fabulous community event.
the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre
I volunteered at the ASRC for 6 years, doing one shift on reception every week… over this time I also donated any design work that was required. At that time there was no distinct branding and no system for putting artwork together, so each piece was fairly unique… In retrospect I think this shows why you need a cohesive brand for an organisation! My kids featured quite regularly as product models…
My favourite thing to design was the annual fundraising calendar, using donated illustrations from a variety of well-known and emerging artists. I never had anybody refuse to donate an image… arty types care about human rights!
Over the years I have created many logos. Sometimes working from concept to final art, at other times tweaking, reworking, revisiting existing logos. Every logo is unique and it is a rewarding experience to work with a business on their brand mark.
This logo was designed to represent a loose alliance of parents coming together to lobby for better funding for state schools in their electorate. It needed to reflect community, schools and building projects! Design by committee…
Right Start Building Consultants
The client had a pretty clear idea about what he wanted, so it was a pleasure to bring his vision to completion.
Trying to convey conversation and different languages and teaching and learning in one logo…
This logo is for a company who provide a high end cleaning service for computers and workspaces with digital equipment… quite a challenge!
Created by Clint
A logo designed for a stylist… obviously!
This logo was designed for an education consulting company… their initial concept was very clear and the final logo was very close to the original brief.
This is the logo for an online vaping sales business… the owner is mad about raptors!
Dynamic Health and Recovery
This logo was pretty much designed by the business owner… I just refined it to give it a little more depth. Small tweaks can make a big difference to a logo!

A logo for a psychology group in the Macedon ranges… we were trying to reflect both the setting and the connections being made.
THS redevelopment group
This logo was developed for a lobby group at my children’s high school… it needed to reflect the school colours and the fact that we have good foundations but need to rebuild.
This logo was a tweak on an existing logo; the business owner wanted a fresher, more modern logo.
A logo for a small team of people working to assist with the NDIS roll out.
