Design package for Caloundra beautician


This was a great project because the owner, Harjeet, started with a design focus. She came to me at the very beginning. I do work for the fabulous Indian restaurant Indiyum in Caloundra and the owner's wife Harjeet came to me as she was wanting to start up her own mobile and home-based beauty business. We brainstormed business names and over a few days came up with 'Sundara' which is Indian for Beauty. The tag line came naturally when coming up with the visual look and feel for her identity, 'experience the sundara glow'. Marketing material followed with brochures, introductory offer flyers, business cards and an electronic letterhead. Look out for the 'Sundara' website - coming soon! It's sure to be so pretty. Thanks for stopping by, Michelle  


Logo & website design for Kitesurfing & SUP Shop


Ok secret's out, I love stand up paddle boarding so when the opportunity came up in general conversation that this local Maroochydore shop needed a website ... I naturally said 'yes'. I love the idea of combing my work and my 'fun time'. We'd go for a paddle at Cotton Tree River Mouth before we sat down in-front of the computer to nut out the 'behind the scenes' work that goes on for a website. For me, it was a perfect combination. Here's what we came up with. Logo design We incorporated both kitesurfing and stand up paddle boarding into the one logo. Previously the store had two different logos but for the website we came up with one - helped to "unify" the look. Website design This is a large website and has many features which include: Online shopping cart with PayPal connect Events calendar Lessons/hire booking calendar Electronic...

salt magazine refresh


I've been designing salt magazine for over a year now, and it just keeps getting more and more exciting to be involved with. The Autumn 2012 edition, they decided it was time to update their look and feel. Yay! It was hard work and there was alot of pressure because people love it!! There is a strong following and they notice every detail - especially if they change. The result has been extremely positive with most comments starting with - "it looks so modern and fresh!" Which is exactly what we were going for. While I was redesigning the mag, I also made a new logo... why not? Here's some pics of the new look and feel. I hope you like it as much as we do. You can pick up a salt magazine at most places out and about on the sunshine coast. It's free so take it home...


Refreshing change for established name

Chaz Floors website on computer

'WALKING THE TALK' always feel somewhat deflated if a business comes to me with all the plans in the world, but in the end are not capable of 'walking the talk'. What I found so refreshing about the new team at Chaz Floors - now Chaz Floors & Blinds.... Is that they came to me with an open mind and because of this we have been able to work together to transform their brand into a consistent, strong visual identity that reflects their culture, service and product - perfectly. They now 'walk the talk'. Initially Chaz approached us to redesign their website... but once they saw the 'design difference' and realised the impact a consistent 'look and feel' can have. They realised they had a number issues that needed to be addressed. The first being the look of their brand - it did not reflect their modern products and they...


Cultural wedding with a modern twist


My creative energy was in overdrive with this one! When one of my best friends decided she was getting married, I was so excited. Obviously for the fact that she had found her 'One', but also because we are two very like-minded creative souls, and with this energy working together on an event - you can ensure the end result is going to be nothing short of 'visually exciting'! The colour palette alone is enough to keep me up all night sketching ideas but the fact we have two people with a culturally rich background of African and Indigenous, the ideas came, shall we say ... naturally. I'm absolutely honoured to be an integral part of this most gorgeous wedding in being asked to provide the styling, invitations, ceremony & reception stationery and website design (as well as being the Chief Bridesmaid... naww!). With an international and local guest list, we decided...
