Oh yeah!

We are a Melbourne-based creative studio. We work across all mediums.

We understand the importance of strategy. We understand the need for engagement and we understand how they go together. That’s why we create articulate, simple, engaging and beautiful work.
We love to create commercials, identities, animations, websites, apps, films and books and we love working in any media from film, to digital to paper to clay.
We know that different people have different strengths, so we tailor our team based on what you need, to bring together the best possible people for your project.

We’re not complicated, just thoughtful.

Video Showreel

A showcase of our video projects. From our Who’s Your Daddy app, to working with artists Beastman and Adnate, to a warehouse filled wall-to-wall with trampolines and laser tag, to meaningful and educational work alongside the Departments of Health and Education, each project has been both a challenge and a thrill.

Animation Showreel

A showcase of our animation projects from the past few years. Whether we were exterminating germs for the Department of Health (sorry, Brian), bringing social petworking to life for your Bark Buds, teaching kids how to not suck at trampolining or helping Victoria to become a healthier place, we had a blast.

Sky Zone

 

Sky Zone

We’re lucky enough to work with Australia’s biggest trampoline park. From TVCs to tag lines and radio ads to animations, we’re all about that anti-gravity goodness.

Early Years Posters

We’ve worked closely with the Department of Education and Healthy Together Victoria on a number of projects now, but perhaps our favourite saw us step away from the screen and get back into the analogue cut and paste game.

Shop, Store, Cook and Eat safe

When the Department of Health asked us to create an animation to illustrate the importance of handling food appropriately, we decided to have some fun. Introducing Brian, Bobby, Billy and Bernie – the cute but germy bacteria clan who just love to get into your lunch. The animation can also be viewed in Arabic, Vietnamese and Simplified Chinese. Fancy.

Holey Moley

Holey Moley Golf Club is one of our favourite projects to date. We did the naming, branding, tone of voice, marketing and social media collateral. We did the art direction on the interior fit out and got elbow deep in paint. We named every burger, pizza and cocktail and we designed most of the holes.

It’s Brisbane’s best mini golf. Par none.

Fill your life with Bill. Fill Bill.

Rollers/Sparkers “Slit Fricative”

Watching paint dry can be pretty tedious. However, watching it run, crawl, trickle, flow, bounce and coagulate is anything but.

Synaesthesia is the curious condition where there is a mingling of the senses. Hearing the word unicorn you might think of blue, whereas hearing a musical note a person with synaesthesia might see a colour, for example f-sharp might be red.

We wanted to explore this phenomena so over two days and nights in a studio we shot thousands of individual paint drops and drips. These were then assembled into a synaesthetic kinetic abstract experiment.

Custodian

Custodian print brokers wanted to promote their services to existing and potential clients. To do this we took a humourous approach to what was a pretty dry subject. We decided to show some of the pitfalls of taking the wrong approach to printing and that being cheap was not good for your brand in the long run. The brochure was printed on 10 paper types using 10 print techniques with messages that anybody thinking about buying print could understand. This picked up 15 international design and DM awards including gold at the Caples.
