Doherty Design Studio is a renowned Melbourne interior design firm. We were asked to rebrand the company to reflect their tastes which include ideas with humour and tactility, and something unexpected.. The a brand identiat revolves around shape, which playfully suggest the idea of three-dimensionality, alluding to their spatial work.

Custom lettering featuring tilted details was drawn to match the angles of the shapes, which are flexible in permutation.

We designed a fully responsive website which allowed Doherty Design Studio's expansive portfolio imagery to take centre stage, with subtle quirks of the branding throughout the site.
