Melbourne / New York


About Us

Tin&Ed are creative directors and artists working between New York and Melbourne Australia. Their practice mixes experimental studio projects with client commissions, purposely blurring the lines between work & play, design & art. Led by curiosity and collaboration, there is a fun, optimistic spirit that lives in every project.

Their creative direction covers a diverse range of fields including graphic design, photography, video, illustration and installation. Their clients include Adidas, Samsung, IKEA, Qantas, BMW and Visa. They won the Qantas spirit of Youth Award in 2010, an ARIA award in 2014 and recently created live projections for the Sydney Opera house.

Their work has been featured in i-D Magazine, The Creators Project and Creative Review as well as books published by Gestalten (Berlin), Frame (Amsterdam) and Hesign (Shanghai).
