Whether or not this branding design for Optus (the second largest telecommunication company in Australia) suits its target market is up for debate, as a huge portion of its business comes from corporate, enterprise and government clients.

Equal parts cute and morbid, this beautifully done (and recent Cannes-winning) public service announcement for Metro Trains in Melbourne. The colour... the illustration style... the tune... the death..?! Hats off to the guys at McCann Melbourne! Big thanks to London...

We got the giggles when we first stumbled across this advertising campaign for Biocanina. (Can you imagine being the hand model for something like this?) The tagline goes: "Love him like you love yourself." Cute concept.  ...

I love the work of Cristiana Couceiro, because of how she uses fantastic colour palettes and utilises elements of Swiss design in a modern way. She works and lives in Lisbon, Portugal. She collects memories personal and collective, national and international which she uses as part of or inspiration for her collages and pieces....
