I thought I post some photos of my desk. This is where the magic happens! Where the creative juices flow!
Invitation design for Josh’s Barmitzvah
Josh wanted his invitation to be a simple postcard. Just scribble an address on the back, stick a stamp and drop in the mailbox. So we designed the card as if he were on a Surf Safari and sending his mates a postcard from somewhere exotic!
That’s Josh’s face on a surfy dude in a messy suit, leaning up on a retro long board. The entire image is a collage of sourced photographs from old surf memorabilia. The invitation really set the scene for the party!
Last week I designed 2 mood boards for Mecca Cosmetica and Kit Cosmetics. The idea of a mood board is to visually demonstrate the ‘look & feel’ of a brand, so if someone was to look at it with fresh eyes, they would understand what the company was all about.
To get the ball rolling, I brainstromed answers to questions like:
“If Mecca was a car, what would it be?” or “If Mecca was an animal, what would it be?” Or what food, celebrity, movie, cocktail, and so on. Using this as inspiration I placed images and decriptive words as Polaroid photos .

I designed their branding to reflect the young company’s bright energy and passion for retro furniture.
Maria Papakiriko, owner of Wicked Bliss beauty salon, recently moved premises and asked me to completely re-design her visual identity. We started with her logo and then building signage, promotional printed material, products and packaging.
Maria had already sourced a Victorian floral motif and wanted to incorporate it into the logo.
Black & white was chosen as an elegant, edgy and non-gender specific colour scheme.
I have also removed the ABN and replaced the email address with the website.
These Nellie Castan Gallery books are given to new clients to showcase the gallery’s represented artists.
