Design a Day

As part of my Design a Day challenge, today I have been working on a new pattern inspired by geometrics and stencil art. Here are my inspiration images I started from.


From here I had to decide on my geometric shape and have always had a thing for little crosses. So I added a layer of […]

Design a Day

Okay so here are some of my designs from this exercise. Remember, not all designs are of a finished standard. This is just to get the creative juices flowing again as we head into the winter collection. Here I played with an old idea “There Birds Plotting” A Kookaburra, Cockatoo and Rosella plot on the […]

2015 – the year ahead

Feeling a little slow to get back in the groove as I am sure you are too. So I have started the year with what I love best – designing and creating. I have started with a simple ‘design a day’ motto and am carving out thirty minutes to create. Now lets be honest not […]

Our Voice

Ok so we know our vision, purpose, essence, how we are going to get there so the last thing I thought I’d share is our voice. I have chosen what I think matches both me and the ‘Australianess’ (if I can make up a word) of the brand.

Cheeky – because a life is no fun […]

How we going to get there?

So an Iconic Australian Design House with a library full of great designs that are about “Anything Australian”. How do we do it?

There is a great quote “If you are the smartest person in the room you’re in the wrong room” Unknown. It really hits home for me. Sure I know a fair bit about […]

What’s Our Essence?

I love the word essence. I immediately think about highly concentrated, deliciousness that is the secret ingredient in anything good! Like backyard cricket in summer or a spa at the end of a hard days work on a farm! So what is our essence?

Well, what do we know so far. Iconic Australian Design House, that […]

Whats Our Purpose?


Not quite a partridge in a pear tree but what we do have is spectacular Rosellas, Kookaburras and Cockatoos. Here I imagine three birds plotting. Perhaps they are discussing who has the biggest seed or something heavier like why do we do what we do?

Every time I go out, my husband calls after me not […]

Who Are We?

One of the things Australians have struggled with is who we are? It’s a tough question. We are a young country, built on the back of migrants, harsh and yet beautiful. We are the ‘Lucky Country’ of convicts and brave migrant battlers. But one thing we definitely are is Iconic. Our NYE fireworks are some of […]

Behind the Designs Part 5

Thongs are an integral part of Australian Life. I see them on the feet of people walking to work, on mums at drop off, on weekends everywhere and even ones with a little sparkle accompanying a LBD in a bar. So, how do we capture this quintessential shoe in a design?

I started simple. Again using […]

Behind the Designs Part 4 – The Polka Dot


Here I wanted to celebrate Sydney Harbour. After living in many cities, I am always blown away by how beautiful Sydney Harbour is. I first played with the shape of the Opera House but as copyright suggests this shape alone is not allowed to be reproduced so I widened the vista to include the whole […]
