Pattern for Yemen was an initiative by A Friend of Mine and The Souvenir Society enlisting the help of 15 local and international artists that helped raise funds for the crisis in Yemen, one of the largest humanitarian issues currently facing the global community. It was a night filled with laughter and generosity, and together we have raised and donated $40,000 for the Unicef Yemen Appeal!

With a team as vibrant and exuberant as the artworks they facilitate — Art Pharmacy is a full-service art and culture agency whom we worked closely with through a holistic rebranding and positioning process.

Together, we defined and addressed their mission of becoming the authority in strategy and implementation for art project management, on emerging artists, industry commentary and connecting people to accessible art.

Abstracted visual representations of pills, tablets and pharmaceutical labelling conventions reference the brand’s namesake and origin story. The bright associated palette draws attention and punctuates space, much like artwork.

Aiming to communicate Art Pharmacy’s authentic professional legacy — the bold, extroverted and confident persona defining them is embodied in the striking identity and graphic system.

Our custom ecommerce enabled portfolio site brings the Art Pharmacy brand language and persona to life. The new site combines and clarifies two previously separate sites and key offerings — their creative consultancy and an online gallery, specialising in emerging and established artists.
