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!

Ball & Doggett is Australia’s largest distributor of paper, packaging, wide format media, plastics, inks, foils and more to the print and design market. Our latest promotion celebrates the diversity of their digital-ready paper range with a series of interactive postcards that allow each folded, perforated panel to become a smaller paper swatch.

In our very first paper promotion working for Ball & Doggett (or K.W.Doggett as it was then known), we created a series of bright, engaging, geometric collages to activate their online presence.
