James Kape {Sydney}

LWC / Outstanding individuals

James Kape is a New York based designer so a slight cheat this week but the boy does hail from Sydney, Australia. He focuses primarily on branding, print and web design. James is inspired by refined design, typography and photography. He approaches each project with interest and enthusiasm, always striving to create something both visually effective and appropriate for its intended audience. A perfect candidate to join our troop of outstanding individuals me thinks. www.jameskape.com

Mike Collinge {currently nomadic}

Outstanding individuals

Hailing from Wellington, Mike’s gone on walkabout. I know, I know, tenuous, it’s an aborigine thing, but bear with us. Perhaps it’s better we think of it as more of a design pilgrimage – a pilgrimage from the ol’ Long White Cloud to Europe; Hamburg to be exact (as we type), via a scattering of Scandanavian hotspots, Mike has asked not what the design world can do for him, but what he can do for […]

Sam Pemberton {Sydney}

LWC / Outstanding individuals

Sam Pemberton has a truly impressive portfolio of projects under his belt, that’s for sure. From branding an entire city to the redesign of the iconic woolmark, not to mention involvement in the AGDA including recently designing their collateral for them. Wow, move over Superman… there is a new hero in town. Currently working out of Sydney, Sam’s portfolio has recently made its awaited debut onto the world wide web; here is a tantalising tit […]

Stephen McCarthy {Dublin / London}

Outstanding individuals

Saturday’s St Patrick’s knees up made us take a good long hard look at ourselves ~ there was a distinct lack of presence from the Emerald Isle on our dear Journal. Enter Dubliner (though London-based) Stephen McCarthy and his delicious brand of goodies. And goodies they are indeed from the über talented chap. Just five years out of university and currently earning his crust working for Imagination, of his work McCarthy says he; “employs a reductive […]

Luke Woodhouse {UK-Sydney bound}

Outstanding individuals

You know someones portfolio is worth looking at when they cite applied branding to jumbo jets and spaceships as part of their skill set. Currently making his way out of the depths of the English Winter, Luke Woodhouse has (in his own words) ‘decided to try something new, in a new city, new country, and new Hemisphere.’ Something that I love to go on about is simplicity. Simplicity in an idea. Simplicity in execution. Luke […]

Jay Chapman {Melbourne}

Outstanding individuals

So you might have seen Jay Chapman on a few blogs around the interweb but I thought it was worth just another highlight. What I like about Jay’s work is the love of good quality photography and once you have that as your basis, simple design and true typography can shine. You might have come across Jay Chapman’s photography after he won the Travel section in the Monster Children Photo Album, or even a sneak […]

Postmammal {San Francisco, CA}

Outstanding individuals

Postmammal is the pseudonym for the work of Robert Murdock, a very talented designer who’s portfolio shows an illustrative approach with clean use of typography. Robert is currently CCO at Method. “The name Postmammal is based on the notion that humans are always evolving, and are always looking for what’s next — essentially what’s beyond human.”

Ed Elliott {Worcestershire}

Outstanding individuals

Having known Ed from a young age, mainly following around his older brother in the world of music, it gives me real pleasure to list him under our Outstanding Individuals categories. Ed Elliott is an artist specialising in sculpture, however that really doesn’t describe what he creates. With interests in psychology, mythology/folklore and the human consciousness, Ed has a real sense of purpose when it comes to communication his idea which, often in a figurative […]
