The Eastern Mental Health Centre is the South Australian Government’s newest specialist mental health centre. The brief for the interior graphics was to create a calming environment whilst memorably branding the centre. When researching mental health, we discovered that garden spaces and natural tones are often used as therapy. Our response brought the natural world inside. Thanks to Cat MacInnes for her wonderful illustrations.
Public Trustee is a South Australian Government enterprise providing security in will-making, estate administration and personal trustee services. For the organisation’s new offices, the overriding architectural statement describes the cycle of life. By definition, will-making describes an eternal cycle, preserving benefit for future generations. Across four floors, the Trustee’s wheat sheaf logo was deconstructed to create pixelised illustrations depicting life’s continuing cycle—the four seasons.
The interior graphics were not only required to communicate the client's business, but provide privacy in an extremely secure environment. The graphics were informed by mapping and navigation, dazzle camouflage and stealth technologies.
Riverbank runs from the Adelaide Festival Centre to the Adelaide Convention Centre—a large area with mixed use. The wayfinding signage system developed for the precinct not only identifies and helps pedestrians navigate through it, but also tells the stories unique to Adelaide.
Robinson’s Accident Repair Centre is the oldest motor body repairer in Adelaide’s CBD, established in 1928. Vintage car badges served as inspiration for a new identity that is at once completely contemporary without losing the company’s heritage. The branding project extended to reconfiguring the façade, front offices and interiors for the reception area.
