2018 was my second year in designing the identity for Melbourne Theatre Company’s play reading festival, Cybec Electric. Using the identity developed in 2017 (you can see last year’s iteration here), we developed the design to communicate the work-in-progress nature of the plays. The design uses hand drawn markings and notes to allude to the first draft of a script as well as a simple monospace font inspired by typewriter lettering.

Catalogue design for Bunbury Regional Art Galleries' retrospective exhibition of John Austin.
John Austin is a renowned photographer who calls Western Australia home, and is currently based in the South West. Known for working exclusively with fine silver-gelatine black and white prints, normally from large format cameras, his oeuvre covers a broad range of subject matter. Survey II 1994-2007 features a wide cross section of this work – from reportage and detailed documentation of the anti-logging protests in the South West in the 1990s, to his multiple ongoing series of landscape and portrait photography.

Carla Adams / Wade Taylor
Artists and friends Carla Adams and Wade Taylor were exhibiting separately at SpectrumProject Space (Perth) and came to me wanting a joint catalogue designed. Their exhibitions share similar themes, but have very different approaches and artworks. The catalogue is a double sided A5 booklet, each side including the artworks and an essay.
‘The Garden of Forking Paths’ is a publication exploring the possibilities and limitations of print and how the translation of information from print to web to print again shifts the perception of the content. How can we translate the fluidity and limitless experience of hypertext while still retaining the genuine nature of print? Can the printed book extend beyond traditional linear reading experience? Indepth research was undertaken to gain a thorough understanding of Hypertext and the different concepts and theories in history.
