• 2013-14 'State of the Service' Annual Report •

Throughout September, Studio B Designs worked tirelessly on two very big Annual Reports for the 2013-14 financial year review for the Northern Territory Government, whilst also continuing with the usual workload. One of them being a very special brief from The Office of the Commissioner for Public Employment.

The client wanted a uniquely styled report that communicated the annual statistics in an engaging yet educational way. The brief was to ensure that the report was unlike any other, and stood out in a vibrant way.

Not only did this require typesetting the entire report, it also required creating infographics to appear within the report with breakout information. These infographics were created from scratch, using the raw data provided by the statistician that worked very hard on compiling the information after the department conducted several surveys.

This report certainly took a considerable amount of time to put together, and the result of this is inspiring and something I am incredibly proud of. 

Please email b@studiobdesigns.com.au for your next annual report, or corporate document project. Thank you to this incredibly high profile client for entrusting Studio B Designs with your important project.

• B is for Barra Fishing •

Every year a bunch of 'Reel' Women get together to participate in a female fishing comp called the 'Reel Women's Barra Classic' up here in the Northern Territory. The comp is held at Dundee Beach, where competitors head out to the Finnis River on the endeavour to catch some big barramundi! Teams can decided whether they hit the river 'Independently' or alternatively can of course have a male skipper to assist them with the blokey stuff. The skipper cannot, however, assist with any tying of knots, netting of fish, and of course are not aloud to have a line in the water, or touch the fishing rods at any stage of the competition.

Yet again this year I was very lucky to be invited back into the consistently entering team "Chix with Stix'. It's an incredibly fun weekend so it's always exciting to be part of the action. As per previous years, I designed our team shirts, which then were printed by Big Fish Graphics (another local company). I was particularly proud of the design this year, as for the first time I could put my business logo on them. We had heaps of feedback on them, and apparently looked very 'professional' on the water which is fantastic.

A huge thank you ofcourse to our sponsors who make the annual weekend possible for us. We placed 7th out of 30 teams which was a fantastic effort considering it wasn’t a big weekend of fish caught. I had fun reeling in my 55cm Barra, a bit smaller than previous years but still great fun!

 My only catch of the weekend... 55cm Barramundi

• a pretty little high tea •

I have recently had the amazing opportunity to re-design a book cover for the extremely delightful Dr Leandra Brady-Walker, commonly known as 'The Cosmopolitab Hippy'. 

An absolute pleasure to read, this book is for 'the modern woman who wants to do more for her health without ditching the cocktails'. As a well known Chiropractor, Dr Leandra knows the 'ins' and 'outs' of keeping our bodies healthy – chemically, emotionally and physically and this funny and engaging book allows you to learn more about your body, with plenty of giggles along the way.

On Friday afternoon we celebrated the launch of this beautiful book and it was incredible to see my designs being displayed in the gorgeous gardens of Burnette House, Darwin City. 

Thank You Leandra, and to everyone who came along to celebrate.

• Paris •

Ahhh Paris, beautiful, inspiring and yes it's true, it really is romantic. It's hard to explain, but there's just something about Paris that makes you Love...

For me, I felt Love towards the inspiration I found here. After having such an art-heavy education, it was incredible to finally see so many of the art pieces that I learnt about in my studies. It's an artists' (& designers') dream within the walls of the incredible Louvre, including ofcourse the famous Mona Lisa... I enjoyed every minute at the museum, every second in paris and every pedal of our educating Bike Tour < highly recommend!

At the very start of my big trip, Paris provided me with a beautiful taste of the incredible kaleidoscope of history, art, architecture, environment, traditions, tastes, fashion, experience and personalities that Europe was about to show me...

This year I was lucky enough to design for a close friend. To capture someone's BIG day is one thing, but to introduce two families, friends and loved ones to someone's special day is an incredible feeling. With her hopes and dreams on a beautiful vintage, unique wedding, it was only fitting that Kirstie's wedding invites captured this theme to give her guests a sneak preview of what will be experienced in February 2014. Kirstie knew exactly what she wanted for her invitations, and I am honoured that I was able to provide this to her.  

I have watched Brooke grow throughout her career. From a budding design student to now launching her own business, I was lucky enough to have her design my beautiful wedding invitations.

She completely understood the look I was going for and kept the design simple and elegant to match the vintage theme for my wedding. The invitations were completed with plenty of time to spare and Brooke was happy to make any changes that I asked for. Thanks again Brooke, they turned out perfect!
