5 Google features you’re not using, but should be

Google is arguably the worlds most loved search engine. In 2013 alone, there were over 2 trillion annual searches, which equates to nearly 6 billion searches per day. One would think such a popular site should have a very sleek user interface to go with it. However, as you would no doubt know, Google’s home page is very plain and thus its full feature set is not immediately obvious. The leading factor behind this – the founders didn’t know HTML and wanted a quick interface. Hence, with such a bare interface, some features which can dramatically increase the experience and accuracy of your search results are often overlooked. Below are 5 useful, but often overlooked features that can significantly improve […]

We are proud sponsor of Cumberland Soccer Club

We are proud to announce that we are sponsoring one of South Australia’s longest running soccer clubs Cumberland United. We were approached by the club after our son Brando was chosen to play in their Under 7’s team. Since its inception Cumberland has competed in various tournaments and competitions and has won numerous trophies but probably none more significant as in 1978 when the club won the State League Championship and the Federation Cup in the same year. One of the many perks of being a sponsor is we get to have out logo on the back of the teams jersies. Over the next couple of months we will be re-designing their website, so make sure you come back and […]

SA Caravan & Camping Show

This year’s SA Caravan & Camping Show was a massive success, with a record crowds, a new Camping Kids Zone, Jayco Main Stage featuring The Drumming Monkeys topped off by perfect sunny Adelaide weather, what was there not to love! We took a different direction with this years branding. We wanted the poster to create a sense of the typical Aussie holiday camping with family and friends.  We used a photo which was a brother and sister running on a jetty about to jump into the beach, and with tagline named ‘Your Aussie adventure starts here!’     Category: Graphic Design Adelaide

Thoughts about similar-looking logos

A recent blog post, Your Logo is Not Hardcore, got Bucharest-based designerAndrei Tache thinking. He shared a few of his comments in this guest piece. Nike VCXC branding by Jon Contino Context We’re able to see those X-based logos together because the Internet connects everything, making it look like the world is one big box, but to each of us, life still takes its course in a limited area. Maybe all of those logos do their job for a small area and stand-out just as they are. Regardless, it’s no longer possible to have perfectly distinct logos for every business. You can hardly have that within a specific domain, much less cross-domain as it’s depicted in the case of Your Logo is Not Hardcore. […]
