We have experimented with all forms of illustration – from traditional line drawings, to collage, photo montages, vector drawings and everything in between. Our illustrations have been commissioned for magazine editorial, print ads, online games, and wall murals for apartments, commercial buildings and schools.
Working with friends is our favorite part of our job. For the 2011/2012 Rooftop Cinema campaign we collaborated with good friends Aaron and Colin from People Collective. We created a series of illustrations and backgrounds which Aaron and Colin turned into posters, postcards, tickets and ads. Our illustrations were about capturing the warmth of summer, the ever-changing sky at dusk, and the unique experience that is Rooftop Cinema.

Working with the 600 students at Hartwell Primary School, we created a large scale illustration which was then applied on the walls throughout the school. The illustration is broken into several different areas relating to things the children had been taught in class and extending further into their imagination. We encouraged the children to think about what they might find in the deep sea, the creatures that existed during the Jurassic period, things that fly, and what can be found in outer space. The mural is intended to give the children ownership of their school, while also enabling them to see the different ways their peers see and interpret the world.
An illustration we created for an article about fashion bloggers for Myer Emporium magazine. See if you can spot The Sartorialist, Tavi, Bryan Boy and Anna Wintour. The models in the background are wearing Viktor and Rolf, Comme Des Garçons, Anne Demeulemeester, Balenciaga and Jil Sander.

WOW, this is where it all started! 2004. Fresh out of uni, our first big break. Next Wave Festival is about supporting young artists, and this is exactly what they did when they entrusted us with the design for the festival identity. The theme for the festival was 'Unpopular Culture' and we created an illustrated city which evolved and grew with each application.
