There are 25 days to go until the Gold Week Telethon, held for Sydney Children’s Hospital. Our lovely clients over at 99 on York are getting involved by holding a raffle and donating money from the clubs’ sales to the charity. Each year, Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick touches the lives of over 326,000 children across NSW and beyond. Last year, Gold Week raised an impressive $1.68 million for the hospital, which is much needed to help the children. You can read more about the cause here and how you can help make a difference www.goldweek.org.au. Here are examples of ou
I love doing it all at Fresco but one of my favourite things is going on location and shooting for a design project. This was a photoshoot for Bankstown Sports Clubs’ InTouch magazine. We (Andrea) design this magazine for the club bi-monthly and it is great being involved in all aspects of the design. The photographer we are working with is the very talented Chris Walsh from Patrick Jones Studio.
Today on my creative blog trawl, I stumbled upon a cute little animation titled handmade typography by a textile designer who makes cool one off collectable pieces. Her website is called Abundance Of. Check out the animation on http://anabundanceof.blogspot.fr/2012/05/handmade-type.html. Fresco has just ventured into the world of video and video production so I’ve been getting very excited about the creative possibilities available with this medium and look forward to sinking our teeth into a great new video production.

Congratulations are in order for team Creative Method for taking out the pennant in this year’s AGDA Gordon Andrews Scholarship Trivia Night! Thanks to everyone for coming along and making this night a huge success and one of the most fun events on the AGDA calendar. Well done to James Armstrong from Surveillance for winning the ‘take flight’ competition, once again proving that aeronautical designers do not show up to this event, and congrats to team Interbrand for building the highest structure out of drinking straws in under 5 minutes! But ultimately it was team Creative M
I was doing my usual Monday morning trawl through my favorite creative blogs when my meanderings led me to a UK photographer and fine artist called Natalie Bybisz, you can check her work out at Miss Aniela. Very stylised and surreal, with an edge. I love the rich imagery, lots of layers of detail, the interesting locations and setting. All of this lends a storytelling element to Natalie’s images. Her photography remind me of a Peter Greenaway film (minus the nudity), there’s a real pictorial sense to her images, they resemble a Baroque or Renaissance painting. Here’s a quote
I just spied this intriguing device over at Design Sponge. This funky (not to mention unique) waffle maker from Ryosuke Fukusada and Rui Pereira combines three of my favourite things: food, homewares and design! You just pour in your batter to create tiny, edible living room furniture! You can also head to 2DM Blogazine for more information. Lauren 03.05.2012
‘Club Trading and Distribution’ is a company that works with retailers and suppliers all over the globe to bring unique products to the Australian grocery market. They came to us to work on their rebrand, which we approached by firstly shortening the company name, ‘Club Trading and Distribution’, as we felt it didn’t convey the nature of the business clearly. A shorter, snappier version was introduced, ‘CTD’. Next, a tagline was introduced to summarise the business, ‘in the bag’. This immediately explains the confidence of the company to deliver their promises; meet their clients expectations;
