Container branding goes global {Nicknack}


Our friends over at Adelaide based Nicknack have been rather quiet of late, and we recently found out why, they’ve been busy scooping up international gongs that’s why! To be more specific, Nicknack‘s work for transport and logistics company SFC did the scooping over at the 2013 Rebrand 100 awards. In their own words, Nicknack describe the challenge… “Although SCF Group had grown into a leading organisation within the Australian Transport & Logistics sector, customers […]

Bolu Tea {Curious Design}


Bolu are purveyors of fine quality tea, directly sourced from Fair Trade plantations in Darjeeling, North India. With a beauty like this on their hands, Curious knew it was time to call in the experts. Curious worked closely with Think Packaging on this project.

Love is sometimes strange, I’m sure we all know that by now but what is StrangeLove? Well my friends, let me first set the scene.

Famous VS {Melbourne}

Awesome agencies / LWC

Famous Visual Services or just, Famous, if you’re colloquially inclined, are not the celebrity design divas you may have been led to believe. Oh no. In fact, they’re a spritely bunch of humble creatives with a passion for the craft and a nose for collaboration.
