Sorsi e Morsi
︎︎︎ Café, Restaurant
︎︎︎ St Kilda, AU
︎︎︎ 2023

A major brand update for a rustic, neighbourhood Italian restaurant in the heart of St Kilda. This rebrand was all about creating a style that felt right at home – like it had always been there – while also offering a fresh, renewed aesthetic that repositioned them equally as café and restaurant.

Filly’s Stable
︎︎︎ Fashion Store
︎︎︎ Albert Park, AU
︎︎︎ 2023

Already a cutting edge store with a strong style signature, Stable were looking to make this clear in their printed brand expressions.

A general update to the Stable brand retained the existing logo, with the addition of colour, pattern, and a selection of brand fonts.

Once the brand was refreshed, an updated suite of retail packaging and stationary was released in time for the 2023 festive season.

Sedni Studio
︎︎︎ Furniture Studio
︎︎︎ Melbourne, AU
︎︎︎ 2023

Looking to fashion and architecture for inspiration, Sedni Studio’s brand identity focusses on platforming the studio’s products across all assets. With the studio’s strong focus on texture and unconventional materials, this approach was vital to showcase the difference in the details.


A strong grid and sense of structure is complemented by fun uses of background colour and large scale imagery, with a strong typographic heirarchy throughout the brand language.
