Mille viae ducunt homines per saecula Romam (A thousand roads lead men forever to Rome). - Alain de Lille (1175)
I’ve been really inspired by geometric patterns and anamorphic design the last year or so. I have always been a fan of Escher’s work, and I think that anamorphic design is a modern extension of his ideas. To create an anamorphic piece would be an amazing challenge requiring a lot of work before any paint touches a surface. Do yourself a favour and Google the term, there is some great work out there.
Just sussed out the Neo-Impressionists exhibition at the NGV. I hadn’t been to a gallery since the Dali exhibition a couple of years ago. I highly recommend it!
Another amazing video from the good people at Rapha re-telling a little known piece of Australian history.

Part of the collateral for the Touch of Class Plants event: PlantFest. This was a trade and invitation only event to showcase their coming range. This booklet was part of a pack that each visitor took home.
My Thoughts on the Flat Vs. Skeuomorphic Debate.
The Flat vs Skeumorphic Design has been a hotly debated topic in the Graphic Design industry for the past couple of months. With very strong opinions on both sides, I have been following the debate closely.
During November 2012, Touch of Class Plants had run a trade and invitation only event to showcase our their and coming range.
They saw a need to host an event that would allow their Growers, Wholesalers, and Retailers to view the latest trees, shrubs, edibles, succulents, and high impact colour.
I was tasked with the branding and collateral.
