Graphic Design – Ryde Business Forum

Posted by | Portfolio, Services | No Comments
RBF invitationWe design all of Ryde Business Forum's marketing material, and because cost is an issue for every not-for-profit organisation we use specific, simple templates for invitations, rather than design something completely new for each event. Events can be anything from workshops for a maximum of fifteen people to lunch or breakfast for around 200 - as this invitation was for. Arion Productions  changed RBF's branding from staid and traditional three years ago to fresh and inviting, with sans-serif fonts used in all marketing material, and the 'wave' device of blue, green and white common across all invitations, the website, stationery and newsletters. Aqua and green colours have been introduced as part of the corporate look, which was previously Reflex Blue and white. We believe the change in branding has definitely made a positive impact on the way RBF is perceived by members and future members.

Graphic Design – CDS

CDS Annual ReportI've designed the annual report for the wonderful people at Centre for Disability Studies since the early 2000s. When I was engaged to do the job initially the brief was to modernise the look and feel of the report. Budget was a real issue and for several years we did the whole job in two process colours. Careful use of white space and those two colours taking specific roles in the document still made the annual report look clean and fresh. The 2009 report was the first we did in full colour and it looks one hundred per cent better again. Those two colours - the red and the blue - are still very much in evidence and apart from full colour photos and black body copy they are the only colours used in the document, retaining a clear link with the organisation's corporate colours and previous reports.

Graphic Design – SCG

SCG brochureFor this client, Stonewater Consulting Group, I designed a branding package - logo, corporate colours, style guide, marketing material, business cards and Word document templates. SCG was a startup employment agency when they asked me to design a logo. They knew what they wanted - a drop of water making a big ripple. The brief for the entire look was that it had to have a slightly traditional feel in terms of fonts, but modern, clean lines. These clients are a pleasure to work with - and if you're looking for an executive role in Sydney, I recommend you seek them out - www.stonewater.com.au

We've done some shoots for Australian Defence Magazine and Rumour Control at a number of defence and aerospace trade shows, including Farnborough in the UK, the Australian International Air Show and Pacific 2008 and 2010 Maritime Expositions. These shoots typically involve static displays, indoor photography in expos and of course things that travel very fast in the sky.

We take photos at events, but don't do weddings. This photo was taken at a business networking event and used in the client's marketing brochure. The type of events we often get called in for are business networking, product launches, executive portraiture and trade shows. We can provide your images to you on a CD or DVD and can arrange for professional quality prints of any size should you wish. Once you have the CD or DVD you are under no obligation to use us for prints, however. We charge for our time to take the photos and any editing necessary. We don't do packages which involve printing. There are so many options around these days for printing your images we believe you should make the choice that's most economical for you.

It's all about image - or rather, images! We do product and onsite photography for clients at very reasonable rates. The image you see here is from a series done for a pharmaceutical packaging company. We did a series of shots that took in all aspects of the facility, with motion shots like this one and static pics of the final packaged products. The photos were then used in the client's brochure and on his website. We have a 'portable studio' we can bring to your premises with lighting apparatus, which is great for executive and staff portraits.
