Working from Paul’s parents farm on the south coast of Australia, we couldn’t resist the decending fog…
This is another interface we produced for a Radio National feature project. The project is called My Street and it’s objective is to capture peoples stories of place: This is your chance to get creative. Your story could be about the people in the street, a building, an issue, a time in history, the environment…anything you like! Upload your own story, and view and comment on the stories of others. Get feedback on your work from ABC radio producers.
We recently travelled across the New South Wales highlands scouting locations for a photoshoot - to be incorporated into a couple of exhibitions later in the year… These are a couple of the shots with a quick treatment…
An invitation to one of the exhibitions associated with the Engaging Visions project that we are doing the website and print work for.
Just completed another interface for a Radio National project, this time for the national project / competition Marvellous Museums.
“Australian museums come in many shapes and sizes, with themes and collections of infinite variety. Millions of Australians visit museums every year, enjoying the chance to see the objects and the images that reflect both our past and our present.
From Sunday 18 May, ABC Radio National will celebrate these inspiring institutions with a museum-themed week of programming and the launch of the first Marvellous Regional Museums Awards.”
We have just completed a re-design and complete rebuild of the ACTS website. Having designed and built their previous website (back in 2004) we had a good understanding of both the technical and design requirements. The client was essentially happy with the original design - so it was basically just tweaked a little to modernise it a little and help it play nicely with the new content management system (a highly customised version of Wordpress 2.5.1)
Just down the road from where we are working (see Laughing Waters post) is an old mud brick house… National Parks Victoria just acquired it for a multi-million dollar sum and while their primary interest was the 40 hectares or so of hills and river frontage, we are far more taken by the abandoned human habitat’s to be found on the property. It must have been quite the party house in the 60’s / 70’s, pumping water straight out of the Yarra the grounds would have been lush - grounds filled with water features, ponds, tennis court & pool, all of which is now in a glorious state of decay. We are interested in staging a few different photoshoots for an exhibition later in the year, however the photos below are just playing around… getting used to the space… You can probably tell from the images that we thought the old pool was pretty crash hot.
Working with Gordy at the ABC we designed a series of banner graphics for the program ‘History Under Siege‘. “History under siege: battles over the past surveys the tensions and debates around history, identity and contemporary society in four countries around the world. It features interviews with historians, as well as oral history and testimony, and archival material.”
