Equilibrium Estate wine packaging.
Equilibrium Estate wine packaging. “Equilibrium Estate is a conceptual project focused on a sustainable, carbon neutral producer of Australian wine. Their ethics and the eco friendly production practices that have formed the foundations of the vineyard are significant contributors to what can be identified as a unique selling point within the market. Through simple yet distinctive information graphics and a conscious, well-informed use of material and print production methods, each labeled bottle aims to communicate one particular area in the vineyards production process in which minimises the negative impact on the global environment. These comprise of the reduction of water use and waste, the use of only organic grapes, decreasing the effects of climate change such as rising sea levels and the reduction of CO2 emissions. Consciously materialised, the labels have been both die cut and printed in specific areas in order to create an interactive user experience. As the product is consumed, the labels take on an unexpected function where particular die-cut shapes, that were once part of the infographic, disappear and in turn illustrate the positive outcomes of vineyard’s sustainable practice.”
Twenty-Fifty information visualization.
Twenty-Fifty information visualization. “Twenty-Fifty is a visual exploration of the global food crisis predicted for the year two thousand and fifty – a result of the inability of the earth’s natural resources to meet future demand. The project presents a series of eight data visualisation posters, each exposing one primary issue responsible for this future crisis. It looks closely at population growth, urbanisation, food production, food waste, genetic modification, climate change, consumption trends and agrobiodiverty as the main influential factors. Through sourcing and photographing food that is representational of my own data visualisations, the project intends to both challenge and educate consumers about how the future may unfold.”
Food Futures publication design and curation.
Food Futures publication design and curation. “Food Futures presents a collection of design projects that illustrate the possibilities that new technologies open up to designers and the way we perceive food in a design context. This book explores current experimentation and innovation in food design from both material and conceptual perspectives. The projects selected for this edition have been realised through design, and perform inquiries into our responsibility and relationship with food and how social and environmental changes will transform how we experience it in the future.”

Mjølner Bar, Sydney – menu design.
Mjølner Bar, Sydney – menu design. “Positioned in Sydney’s old tobacco factory, the Mjølner carvery and whisky bar is a viking-inspired venture by The Speakeasy Group. Cocktails, Wine and Whisky are hero in the venue. This brief detailed the design and fabrication of each beverage menu, embellished with details in the print finishes and illustrations that have been discovered in the archives of old Norse publications and ephemera. This project was designed in collaboration with Katie Dean.”
Chef Sean Connolly packaging. “Inspired by the composition of ingredients, Chef and Restaurateur Sean Connolly’s expansive range of retail cooking products showcase a minimalist, typographic design direction with a focus on the simple, classic nature of Sean’s style in the kitchen. The products are identified through the dominant presence of a numerical value which is a direct expression of the percentage of true ingredient composition – for example ‘99% pure tomato.’ Sean Connolly’s expanding suite of products includes olive oils, sauces and marinades.”
