The Adelaide Festival is one of the world’s major live entertainment and arts events, taking place every year in March.
For the 2014 Adelaide Festival's companion app, I was responsible for its front-end refresh and update, including splash screen and home page design, updating all assets for the app build to reflect the 2014 festival brand, and prepare all technical assets and widgets for the developer.
The app provides up-to-date information about the programme, session times, festival artists, a planner, tools to push content to social networks via Facebook, Twitter and email, and interactive maps to help patrons navigate the city of Adelaide and festival venues. The app can also be used to buy tickets.

Campaign art for the Adelaide City Council's Halloween on Melbourne Street initiative, teaming up with local businesses to provide treats to trick-or-treaters in a safe environment. The artwork needed to be engaging but not intimidating, and the casting of two ghosts within the plumes of steam rising from a cup communicated both the cosmopolitan cafe culture of Melbourne Street, as well the holiday's supernatural themes.

The Expert Panel on Planning Reform was a five member body appointed in February 2013 to provide recommendations for a new planning system to Government and Parliament by December 2014.
The three high-volume reports that I designed between 2013 and 2014 detailed the Panel’s discussions, investigations and findings into the South Australian planning system. I branded the reports in a stylisation of the Panel's existing branding (Think Design Deliver), a state-shaped puzzle-piece logo. The front and back covers are an incomplete puzzle, a work in progress, forming the shape of the state of South Australia. The inner document is peppered with stray puzzle pieces, and large block colours borrowed from the logo are used to quickly and easily separate each chapter.
The final report was put to the South Australian government in December 2014, leading to the development of the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Bill, passed by Parliament in early 2016. The new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 is currently being implemented by the Department.

Veolia Australia and New Zealand (of French transnational company Veolia Environnement S.A.) is dedicated to service and utility activities traditionally managed by public authorities, including water management, waste management, public transport and energy services.
This brochure was an in-house corporate publication for Veolia Australia and New Zealand staff, providing a snapshot of activities to date including events, news and company updates. The publication adheres to very strict corporate styling and brand guidelines, but the layouts themselves are often flexible, fun exercises in print design and layout optimisation, just like an annual report.

The Capital City Committee functions as an intermediary body between the Adelaide City Council and the State Government. It participates in the governance of the City of Adelaide, being primarily concerned with the planning of Adelaide's urban development and growth.
The 2013-2014 annual report takes the vibrant angular geometry of the Capital City Committee's corporate identity, and applies it liberally to each spread to create interesting and unique layouts, and fill the publication with chromatic vibrance.

Veolia Insight (edition 4) is the environmental transnational's shareholder publication for Australia and New Zealand. Each issue documents corporate activities, events, facts and figures of Veolia's environmental solutions across water, waste and energy, and aims to provide insight into key industry issues.
The magazine must adhere to Veolia's branding guidelines, but also affords significant freedoms in layout and image content.
The Frome Street Bikeway runs from Greenhill Road to Fitzroy Terrace (Adelaide, South Australia) and is a key north-south bike route through the city, forming part of the City of Adelaide Bikeways network, and providing a safe and easy route by bike into the CBD for work, shopping or recreation.
A stacked block of playful type against an off-green canvas was a friendly and attention-grabbing means to introduce all manner of road users to the new infrastructure. The green evokes both the outdoors and high-visibility, while the stacked type exists as a single lane. The surface message is ironic and comical, and a lot less hateful than it may sound coming from the mouth of a frustrated motorist.

Sunrise Christian School is a co-educational Christian school with 6 campuses in South Australia, including Whyalla and Naracoorte. The school has a dedicated focus on the well-being of its students and the challenges of modern life.
Through business and marketing developer Spark BDM, I was hired to redesign its enrolment forms and fee schedule forms, reducing their complexity and restructuring their information. I also supplied an interactive version of the enrolment form that parents could download from the website and rapidly email back to the school.
