Working for Onfire Design to create the identity and stationery for Giles Luncheonette, a refreshing new cafe to the Britomart area of Auckland.
Kelly Brown approached me with the hope of refreshing the dated and tired branding they currently had. We came up with the tagline 'Window Furnishings' to give more direction to the brand and developed a refreshing, bright and more direct identity.

Designed for Gilmours/Foodstuffs for the 2014 Fine Food Exhibition in Auckland through Icky Communications.
Architects face the challenge of creating something new that will correspond with an already existing space. Every structure serves a purpose, but when built, how do these structures represent their original intent and how do they relate to their surroundings? Surrounding influence looks at the way in which structures have been designed to represent their purpose, and how they relate to previous surroundings.
This project consists of two perfect bound books, one being a research document and the other a final portfolio.

What better accompaniment to the Christmas Ham than a good smear of festive mustard? For the 2013 Christmas Season and to show our appreciation to clients for another great year, Onfire Design created a rustic gift box containing a series of three mustards telling the history of this delicious condiment. Building on the concept of “A not entirely accurate history of mustard” we developed three separate labels to correspond to the Hot English, French Dijon and Roman Honey varieties. Carefully crafted illustrations of Spud, our canine Client Services Director, helped to convey Mustard's history in a lighthearted manor.
