Copywriter: Anni Hall

Design: Daniel Dittmar

Photographer: Daniel Dittmar

Additional credits: Input: Anni Hall

Published: March 2013

Short rationale (optional): Working side by side with Anni, this brand explores the notion of personal inspiration that represents a particular time and place. I wanted the viewer to interact with the brand through the eyes of Anni herself, so we mapped out three spots in Sydney that have had a profound impact on her practice; Centennial Park, Gordons Bay, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Through the use of cropped photography and emotional colour response to take us to a particular location, the idea of scent expanded upon the concept further. By incorporating flowers from each location into the brand, and using their scent on the printed stationary we can allude to the spaces in a two pronged approach; visual and olfactory. This also aligns strongly with the beauty industry that Anni is an integral part of.

Published: December 2012

Short rationale (optional): Formerly GET Solutions North, The Energy Desk needed to re-brand to reflect the changes in the business operations.

Agency: Bunch, London/Zagreb

Creative Director: Denis Kovac

Additional credits: Original Blob and Direction conceived by: Kurppa Hosk

Published: 2013

Short rationale (optional): Bunch developed the identity based on the brand directions that were conceived by the Kurppa Hosk. A stark and somewhat technical visual foundation is complemented by an inspiring blob – while digital in nature, its 3D model carefully combines light, texture and space which brings depth in both print and digital format while maintaining its poetic essence. Also in charge of print production, Bunch was able to produce materials with great attention to detail, where the "borderless" theme is explored not only through typography and visuals but also materials, print processes and finishes.

Short rationale (optional): We wanted to celebrate our five year anniversary in style and in 3D.

We dreamed of making our illustration into reality for years and by coincidence ran into someone who could do exactly that. So Nanning and I secretly started the project and at our party dinner celebration handed out our new business cards to our people.
