Campaign

Studio Dumbar’s work for Amsterdam Sinfonietta is wonderful in how it does so much with so little. Just type, colour, and scale. Oh, and it really sings when animated. Orchestras afford plenty of creative latitude to graphic designers—yet it’s rare to to see something this distinct, beautiful and off the beaten track. Encore!

Not sure which agency did these but very clever indeed. Made me smile!

Free on a Tree

Oliver Edwards

I had the pleasure of speaking alongside Oliver Edwards in Hobart. Oliver has had a brilliant idea to help those in need throughout the city. He has collected hundreds of coats and hung them around trees in parks with a sticker “Free on a Tree. If you need this it’s yours”. A great idea that is making such a big difference. It’s definitely something that should take off in San Francisco. You can watch Oliver’s movie here. Or follow him on Facebook @freeonatree

Garbett have designed this little beauty. Needs no explanation whatsoever. (Pay attention Mr Trump!)
