Brand Development – Graphic design for ALA Australian Lacrosse Association

“The Australian Lacrosse Association aims to provide leadership through the delivery of quality sports services and programs which ensure increasing participation for all levels of lacrosse (players, coaches, officials, administrators), and delivers international success.”
The Australian Lacrosse Asssociation Visual Identity comprises multiple components:
THE ‘SHEILD’
Lacrosse is a game of fluid activity, unique, with behind the goal tactics and bold individual goal scoring drives. The curving and arcing lines replicate the strength and activity of this great game. They are representative of the ball movements, player position and team strategy around the goal circle, whilst forming a triangular shape and stylised head of a Crosse, (lacrosse stick).
The AUSTRALIA OUTLINE is inclusive of all states.
The ALA comprises 6 member states –
New South Wales Lacrosse Inc., Queensland Lacrosse Association, Lacrosse South Australia, Lacrosse Tasmania, Lacrosse Victoria, Lacrosse West
With the key components connected by THE SOUTHERN CROSSE, our position within the world of lacrosse is reinforced as the “Team Down Under “.
The outer shape is strong and becomes “shield like” in it’s presentation providing positive attitude that Lacrosse in Australia is a country of winners.

furniture – cellar door counter – Wirra Wirra Winery

Daring to be different, having a style and culture all of its own and ageing well were the criteria met in the creation of the Cellar Door furniture. The three dimensional facade of new and recycled hardwood combined with bronze coating and effective lighting represent the merging of design skills and celebrates the Wirra Wirra ethos. Behind the counter, sinks, wine and glass storage, as well as point of sale have all been considered for ease of use and practical effect.
Design Institute of Australia  – Commendation – high standards have been achieved, a recognition of professional design procedure and outcome.  SA Awards Program – 2004
“Wirra Wirra is a place that has inspired the most lateral of thinkers. The winery itself is a testament to some quirky ideas and inspired traditions, all of which have come from the freedom to explore possibilities. Serious fun is at the heart of all that has resulted.”   www.wirrawirra.com

IT Happens in South Australia

World Congress on IT – Adelaide Convention Centre – 2002  A 150 square metre exhibition stand representing 25 South Australian IT companies showcased our State capability and brought financial benefit to the companies on display. The design solution made effective use of the footprint and the full ceiling height of the exhibition centre creating an elevated and enclosed platform.

ASC Australian Submarine Corporation

Standing in excess of five metres tall the ASC exhibit dominates the exhibition hall at the Adelaide Convention Centre. The stand has now been assembled, dis-assembled and re-assembled six times and currently is in storage ready for use at the next Defence and Industry Trade Show. Re-usability has always been important in my display planning.
