As soon as we have sent off the print files for a new publication we hop straight on to the task of converting it to an eBook for online viewing! We set up most of our brochures and catalogues in this way, complete with animated page turning, search functions and the ability to download them as PDFs. It works a treat for our client, with full access to the publications anywhere, anytime. Andrea Dell 01.05.12 Check out our eBook for the Arrowfield Stallions 2012 Brochure here. Here is another example of an eBook, this
Remember when you were little and your nan made you play Memory while she made the tea. Well, now there is a very classy typographic version on the market for all the Graphic Designers out there who want to test their typeface recognition. We saw it on this groovy little blog but you can cut out the middle man and go straight ahead and buy it from here! Andrea Dell 28.05.2012
Yes, yes I know I’m supposed to blog about all things creative but as the weather turns cold my thoughts are returning to one of my favorite places in the world to warm oneself up – Bagni Vecchi in Northern Italy! I figured a few days spent in this romantic hotel in the Alps with its ancient spa (the Romans used to come here to chill out/warm up centuries ago) would most definitely fill and recharge the creative well. My partner took me here for a few days as a gift when we were still dating years ago, as an Italian he has the inside scoop on lovely romantic places around Italy. Ne
At 6pm tonight Sydney will once again be transformed into a spectacular canvas of light, music and ideas.

The Fresco crew headed off to Semi-Permament last week for a couple of day trips jam packed full of designer inspiration from a whole bunch of creatives. Highlights for me included Roman Coppola in the Google+ Hangout session, where we got to hear from Roman, his friends and family. Roman introduced us to his super cute mum who is a conceptual artist, along with cousin Jason Schwartzman, who had us all chuckling with his ‘The New Yorker App’ and words of wisdom on baby talk. The grand finale was Sheena the leopard who made a special guest appearance. Totally random couple of hours.
Earlier this year we played our part in Macquarie University’s O-week! We designed a range of 9 posters to show students what was on offer at their newly refurbished Gymnasium, the benefits of joining up to their Gym Membership Club and how to make the most of their Uni’s very comprehensive range of sports and fitness activities. The posters covered boot camp, group fitness, personal training, pool exercise, weight training, spin, yoga and even parkour classes! Off the back of that project we then designed a Sport and Fitness Marquee. Then THAT was such a hit that the Campus Experience D
At Fresco we love getting crafty! Annalisa is up to her ears in buttons and cupcakes, Lauren has embarked on her very first upholstery project and me, well I’m just getting into sewing! My mum used to own a fabric shop and teach ladies how to sew with stretch fabrics back in the ’90s, but it all started for me when I scored a fab little sewing machine from her, for my birthday recently! I call her Bernie. So, I thought I’d share a fabulous little hotspot that I have found online! Sew Weekly is a bit like an online sewing magazine and it has a great little section calle
Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is talking about the beautiful new Koskela showroom and eatery in Rosebery called Kitchen By Mike. I’ve yet to visit, but as a Coogee local, Rosebery is only a quick hop, skip and a jump away. After reading reviews on other designer cool sites; Design Files, Fete Press to name a few I have been desperately trying to find a window of time to visit. The concept = seasonal food, cooked fresh each day after a trip to the market to see what’s good. Served canteen style, no bookings taken. Then, wander around and beg, borrow or steal (just kidding) a beautiful pie
