The art is in the start.
Conceived as an Instagram project, Hooklines delivers regular micro-doses of prose by publishing the first line of our favourite books and songs. This self-initiated project scratches our literary itch, and as this project has progressed we have been astounded by the depth of meaning that can be found in the opening lines of works.

Citezmoi (translates as 'quote me') is a project developed by Persona Tres Grata, a French not-for-profit organisation dedicated to giving those living with a disability a powerful voice. The purpose of this project is to project the thoughts, ideas and questions of those living with a disability, and in doing so remove any perceived differences in the way people live.
This powerful project is successful because the thoughts are expressed without any knowledge of who the person is saying them. Each quote is universal in its own way, and therefore the conclusion is that those living with disabilities are just like everyone else.
Viewers are invited to participate with their own quotes and comments, adding another layer of inclusion to the project.

SHELTER : ON KINDNESS
2009 | Melbourne
The book On Kindness by Adam Phillips inspired this 2009 RMIT exhibition, which invited architects, writers, artists and thinkers to respond to the question of what is required to provide us with shelter. Is it a physical structure? Or is it a state of mind? The exhibition explored the question of shelter from many angles.
We designed the accompanying catalogue, which articulated the exhibition's purpose and content, and was in itself a statement on shelter. Featuring an inside-out design, with the book's hard cover inverted into the middle and the softer inner pages forming the 'cover', it plays with the notion of a book as another kind of shelter.
This project included strategy, creative direction and graphic design.
