St Kilda Film Festival 2010 – Campaign Identity
Over 3 years we have built up the St Kilda Film Festival brand and elevated its positioning and exposure. It’s now Australia’s premier short film festival. In 2010 our hero was a dark and moody creature of the night. The cheeky bat embodies a touch of film genre. Other nocturnal creatures cameo throughout the campaign collateral.

Leesa O’Reilly Stylist – Brand Identity
Leesa O’Reilly, a stylist, recently expanded her business beyond photographic styling to include product sourcing and location scouting. Additionally, she has also launched a prop hire arm to her business of which all her unique products acquired over the years can be sourced.

Her brandmark is based on the idea that she is constantly sourcing objects from different places. We chose to produce four different business cards to show the diversity of her work and business.

Metropolis Inc. – Publications & Collateral
Working alongside marketing specialists Metropolis Inc.,Brave has developed a range of collateral for several property developments.

Portfolio 7 is an Information Memorandum for a group of 7 large scale commercial properties being sold across Australia. Both foiled fabric case and cover were hand made for each publication. Acetate sheets were used throughout to divide sections. A limited quantity were produced and distributed to selected candidates.

With Metropolis Inc, Brave also produced an Information Memorandum for 330 Collins Street in Melbourne’s CBD along with a campaign identity for City Rise, a property development in Melbourne’s outer suburbs. City Rise incorporated both print collateral and on-site signage.

Marc Buckner Photography – Identity & Publication
Each time Marc briefs us on a new project a buzz of energy fills the studio. From designing his identity to a series of publications showcasing his work, it is always exciting to see how far we can push things to create an outstanding result. While working collaboratively with Marc on his latest book, the project was open to our interpretation. The freedom to explore and re-interpret the imagery, allowed us to showcase his photography in an non-commercial context.

Peter Rowland Catering – Brand Identity & Collateral
When first approached by Peter Rowland Catering, they had a strong reputation but an outdated visual identity. We updated the brand mark through an evolution, refreshed the entire colour palate and image library. Every piece of collateral was re-designed meticulously and protected by a brand guidelines document to ensure consistency.

Among the collateral is the tender, which Peter Rowland submitted to the National Gallery of Victoria. They now provide the catering for the three cafes situated in the gallery.

Mike Long Photography – Brand Identity
Our approach when creating Mike Long’s image was to avoid all photographic clichés and most importantly use no photography. This was achieved through raw, uncluttered typography.

For those of you out there craving for some solid, graphic design from the land of down under – today’s addition should be rather satisfying if you don’t mind me saying so. ;)

Studio Brave is a small but perfectly formed design studio based in Melbourne appropriately named after their ethos: “Brave thinking leads to an unexpected outcome… Inspired by summoning the courage to take a risk… Creating, developing and maintaining successful brands.”

Led by Creative Director Tim Sutherland (who has worked in various leading Melbourne design studios including Cornwell Design) and designers: Katrina Tesoriero and Elise Lampe, Studio Brave approach each project with passion to discover design solutions which engage the client, the audience and themselves.

I really don’t need to say any more because the quality of the work you see above, should speak for itself. Enjoy and I hope you all have a great weekend. Big thank you once again to Tim and the lovely Katrina for making this feature possible.

    My mouth is on the floor because this work is so good!

  2. Wow, great work. Thanks for bringing these guys to my attention!

  3. Lovely — I particularly like Mike Long’s identity.

  4. Grez

    Bloody marvellous work! So many fresh and cutting edge design studios emerging from down under in the last year or two. I’d also like to see a few of the print companies featured or at least credited if they are also within the region, as the finishing and attention to detail in the final production is clearly bar none.

  5. Danny

    Simply stunning work, it’s hard to pick a favorite amongst all these.

  6. David

    Thanks for comments gents, I’m sure all the lovely, hard-working folk at Brave will appreciate the kind words :)

    @Grez – I’ve been saying the same thing – there are so many untouched gems in the Australian design scene that are producing beautifully crafted work in age where print budgets are being reduced. For me it’s almost like playing a game of Where’s Wally? trying to find them all. ;)

  7. Very nice work. Well done. You managed to make me like rounded edges. Before I had a fear of them. Really like the Long Photography CD holder too. Very sharp. Nice job!

  8. Fantastic array of work, if I was pushed to choose one – I’d go for the Leesa O’Reilly Brand Identity. I’m a sucker for rounded edges and lush photography!

  9. John

    Portfolio 7 was brought in as a sample from Bambra Press, with the embellishment by Irwin and McLaren if I remember correctly.

  10. Incredible work. Very inspiring. Beautiful layouts matched with bold and inventive print.

  11. Terrific work!!

  12. I like these projects. Especially Mike Long’s photography brand identity.

  13. Sharon

    Great work Studio Brave, I love the fact that you use Splendorgel for most of your work!

  14. Every piece stands on its own merit, but the ‘cheeky bat’, that ‘dark and moody creature of the night’ is my hero piece!
