My good friend and amazing entrepreneur Mike Stearne asked me to create a brand for his new luxury private tours company. It was a real fun project to work on. You can check out his website here: www.obsidian.tours
Thanks for the shout out Mike!
South Alive is an urban rejuvenation project, led by the community, with the goal of identifying the best possible future for South Invercargill and ways to make it happen.
I'm really proud to have been the design lead on this amazing project. It landed on my lap in April 2016 with an extremely short deadline and non-existent budget. Now over a year later the centre has been built and is beginning stage 2 of its development.
You can view the branding elements here:
Idle hands are the devils playthings, but sometimes boredom and free time can be the catalyst for some awesome fun projects.
Here's an Indian inspired lotus design I created for giggles.
As soon as Christmas is over there is that terrible lull before work starts again in earnest the following year. It's at these times I get to play about on personal projects. This time I wanted to create a Victorian style monogram for my wife Annthalina and I. If you have an opinion, feel free to share it with me :)

The high-profile and galvanizing Chinese human rights figure Gao Zhisheng, held by Chinese security forces almost continually since late 2006, has been officially sentenced to prison for three years. You can read the full story here at The Epoch Times:
I had the honour of designing Gao's book 'A China More Just', the cover of which you can see above. It tells of his remarkable life; born and raised in a cave with only the stars to tell time, Gao Zhisheng rose from poverty to become China's most important lawyer who took on the CCP fighting for the rights of Chinese citizens.
You can purchase his book on Amazon:
