PUTTING TOGETHER THE PIECES FOR BETTER, MORE FOCUSED CHILD HEALTH CARE.
GP4KIDS IDENTITY DESIGN
Kedron Wavell Medical Centre in Brisbane spotted a gap in the market—few medical centres provide a specialist general practice focusing on medical care for children.
This colourful identity plays on the idea of a puzzle or childrens’ building blocks—a specialist doctor can put the pieces together to ensure best medical care and wellbeing for children.

TRANSFORMING A COMPLEX GLOBAL INDUSTRY BODY.
INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF OIL AND GAS PRODUCERS REBRAND
The International Association of Oil and Gas is the industry voice throughout the world—it is responsible for safety and best practice in the industry—but was falling short on its promise.
The challenge was to navigate this complex organisation and engage its members throughout the process. The outcome is a redefined purpose and expression of a brand that engages and communicates to its members, government and more importantly the broader community.

CITY & GUILDS BRAND ARCHITECTURE/ EXPRESSION/GUIDELINES
City & Guild’s is the UK’s largest provider of vocational education. Its brand promise is ‘unleashing talent’. The problem is its brand only communicates with one of its many audiences. Our task was to break down the complex organisation, and define a clear visual language and expression.

ICC BRAND IDENTITY/GUIDELINES/ LAUNCH/EVENTS
In the late 90s controversy, corruption and match-fixing plagued the International Cricket Council (ICC). Its image was in turmoil, the visual identity was weak—change was desperately in need. We took an under loved, even untrusted brand and gave it new life. The revitalised brand launched at Lord’s in 2001. Over eight years we developed events brand for numerous ICC events – including the CWC 2007 in the West Indies.
15 years on, the ICC mark and identity lives on and the work has paved the way for future brand development.

ICC CRICKET WORLD CUP WEST INDIES 2007 VISUAL IDENTITY/GUIDELINES
ICC Cricket World Cup is held every four years. The event brand identity reflects the host country or region.
The identity captures the spirit of cricket and life in the Caribbean—incorporating cricket symbols of bat, ball and wicket stumps with vibrant colours and shapes of symbols from the Caribbean. The rhythmic energy of dance and celebration is embodied by the red leaping figure and the unique feel of Caribbean island life reflected in the vibrant green of the palm tree and azure blue of the surrounding sky and seas.
Disrupting the London holiday market—Vive Unique is onto a great idea: helping homeowners rent out their London homes to short stay guests. The business has great potential—the problem is their name and brand identity does not live up to the promise.
A new name was conceived—from the original name 'Vive Unique' —the new name 'Veeve' is sophisticated, ownable, memorable and celebrates the concept of living life well.

EVRAZ RAILS & WHEELS SUB BRAND DEVELOPMENT/ EXPRESSION/LAUNCH
Two thirds of the world’s rails and wheels are produced by the Russian steel company EVRAZ, but how do you differentiate your product in a generic commodity market?
