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!

A selection of some of the many websites we have created over the years for a multitude of clients, from small and experimental sites, to large ecommerce sites, and more.

Studio Gorman is an interior design studio based in Sydney. We created a custom website that is both down to earth and elevated, just like their projects. The website is designed to build upon the notion of layering – of materials, colours, styles and periods.

Beci Orpin is one of the most iconic female creatives in Melbourne. We created this playful custom portfolio website for her.

Kerrin is an Australian menswear label. We designed this highly customised Shopify website that not only presents their products cleanly, but also conveys their brand story; in particular, their love of exploring and celebrating travel, the outdoors and contemporary Australian culture. Full case study coming soon!

A loose and charming website built in-house for Lesa – a restaurant that loves honest wine and food.

Halcyon Lake are purveyors of fine rugs and carpets. We created a website for them that's just as functional as it is beautiful and elevated.

Together with Souvenir Society, we created Pattern for Yemen, a charity project that raised over $40,000 for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. We designed and coded this fun Shopify website to sell art cloths for the cause.

Bayport is property development and civil construction company. We designed this informative website with interactive exploration and vibrant art direction to demonstrate the sheer scale and level of experience Bayport has.

Milka is an online store that sells a curated collection of adorable homewares, toys, accessories and more for children. We created this cute custom eCommerce website that not only presents her wares, but also her moodboarding and interior design services.

Designstuff is an online homewares shop that specialises in Danish and locally made homewares and gifts. We designed this eCommerce site to increase sales and customer conversion, while still presenting wares in a clean and minimalist way.

Studio Griffiths is an interior design practice with an uncomplicated but considered philosophy. We created a website to hero the beautiful spaces Studio Griffiths creates, along with the stunning photography by Sharyn Cairns and Tom Blachford.
