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. With it’s founders having experience spanning both hemispheres, primarily New Zealand and the UK, Famous was born in 2003 not quite slap bang in between, but in Melbourne. Fast forward ten-ish years and […]

Trial and Error {Melbourne}

Awesome agencies / LWC

Going the extra mile is a philosophy we should all aspire to, unfortunately that conflicting notion of there not being enough hours in the day sometimes gets in the way acting as a convenient excuse. Trial and Error appear to have found their way through this maze of contradictions. Not only are they designers but they are also keen observers and documenters, good but not good enough, add to that mix the odd workshops here and there and you have the complete package. […]

Studio Hi Ho {Melbourne}

Awesome agencies / LWC

While their name may conjure up images of seven smaller than average people marching to work with shovels and picks, Studio Hi Ho are in fact team of two and as far I can tell are of average height! With big ideas, creativity and the strategy to match they have been lighting up the streets of Melbourne for a number of years now and may I say, they doing a damn fine job. I am however still hoping they at least […]

Motherbird {Melbourne}

Awesome agencies / LWC

I have to say, being in this here blogging business, I read a lot of agency ‘profiles’. Many baffle, some astonish and others are just fancy words strung together, however Motherbird seem to have nailed theirs. Not only do they sound interesting they also appear to understand the true function of graphic design. I’ll let you read their words for yourself but needless to say the 3 C’s are present, creative, communication and clients. Needless […]

Cornwell {Melbourne}

Awesome agencies / LWC

Cornwell (not to be confused with Cornwall – home of the British Cornish Pasty) have a very simple recipe for creativity, one which we like the sound of. In their own words: ‘We foster a culture of creativity. This creates possibilities. This attracts talented people. Their talents flourish. The clients get exceptional work’. If these are the results then we reckon their philosophy is a pretty solid one – simples! Tw. @Cornwell  / www.cornwell.com.au  

Bird {Melbourne}

Awesome agencies / LWC

Taking flight onto @long_whitecloud‘s weekly Cloud 9 this week is Melbourne studio Bird, led by Luke Carson. Their passion for design is the fuel for their fire, something which audibly shines through in their work. They also curate a candy-filled blog, regularly serving up a healthy dose of visual treats, ch-ch-check it. Tw. @designbybird / Tumblr: www.flywithbird.tumblr.com

Hunt Studio {Melbourne}

Awesome agencies / LWC

One of my favourite design publications at the moment (obviously discounting the beauties I write for) has to be Process Journal. Beautiful crafting goes hand in hand with engaging content, wandering happily down the track of design critique. The credit for this piece of greatness goes to Hunt Studio based over in Melbourne. In addition to their work on the journal they also find the time to craft considered pieces of bespoke design across a […]

Swearwords {Melbourne}

Awesome agencies / LWC

They have a blog dedicated to bikes, they brand their own pencils, they review tasty restaurants and new beers, they blog about typography and create their own software AND they design beautifully effective web, print and packaging… phew… take a breath will you. Swearwords are based over in Melbourne and recently did me the honour of filling my inbox with juicy new design work hot off their press. If the above isn’t enough to shower […]
