New recruit at Axiom.

February 10th, 2012

A tad overdue (he’s been here nearly 4 months!), but we’d like to formally welcome and announce that Axiom has a new recruit in the form of graduate graphic designer Angus Daley.

Angus graduated from Central Institute of Technology in 2011 with an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design. We’re sure Angus will bring a fresh perspective to every project he works on at Axiom and we are currently enjoying watching him come to grips with being thrust into the proverbial deep-end of a very busy start to 2012 at Axiom.

Welcome Angus!

Pure craftsmanship

November 4th, 2011

We came across this magnificent video that details the process behind the work of Paperlux, a Hamburg-based design studio who were commissioned by the graphic design magazine Novum.

The goal of the project was to underscore the importance of print media as the publishing industry increasingly goes digital.

A must watch for anyone who wants to see behind the scenes of a print project. Read the rest of this entry »

Worthy tribute to Steve

October 25th, 2011

We came across this wonderfully simple tribute from advertising agency DDB Dubai. No doubt Jobs would have approved.

 

Axiom kitted out with iPad 2′s!

May 12th, 2011

You’d think with all the hype that surrounded their launch I would have remembered to blog about this sooner! I forgot to mention that we picked up our reserved iPad 2′s back at the start of April, oh and yeah, they’re awesome!

Now at almost every meeting we spend the first 10 minutes answering questions about it and showing it off to clients. How many people with another brand tablet pc can say that? Apple just own cool.

Go on, go and get yours here.

Axiom LEARN how to help.

April 5th, 2011

In late January this year we were introduced to the inspirational Mandy Mason and the extraordinary work her and her team are doing with the LEARN Foundation for Autism.

L.E.A.R.N. is an independent provider of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) based therapy services for young children having an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Mandy founded LEARN in 2008 after her daughter was diagnosed with autism in 2006.  Mandy became passionate about the use of the science of ABA therapy in the field of autism and has overseen the growth of LEARN from 20 children on opening the centre in 2008 to a capacity of close to 100 children today.

Welcome 2011.

February 24th, 2011

Wow, well this year has certainly kicked off at the same cracking pace at which 2010 came to a close!

We had an unprecedentedly manic end to 2010, but fortunately managed to deliver upon all our promises and in the process continued to build upon relationships with our stable of existing clients.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been fortunate enough to secure several new business wins welcoming some notable new clients to Axiom. The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority and Fremantle Prison have both opted to extend our contracts with them so we’re looking forward to continuing the relationship with these two iconic Perth tourism destinations. Our resource sector clients and property sector clients have also certainly ramped up their operations riding high on the Western Australian Mining Boom Version 2.0.

It looks like 2011 is going to be all about managing our growth whilst maintaining and delivering the quality outcomes for which we are renowned. What a great time to be in business!

ADA – Australian Design Amateurs?

September 23rd, 2010

I was recently listening to a podcast from By Design – the ABC Radio National program on all things design – and I was delighted to hear an interview with Michael Bryce and his comments on graphic design in particular and interestingly the recent launch of a new design initiative – the Australian Design Alliance (ADA).

September 1st, 2010

Well, we’re super duper excited – our new iPhone 4′s arrived first thing Monday morning and we’ve not been able to put them down since. So far, so good, don’t believe the hype that happened in the US, the network that users in the US have to use (AT&T) is obviously just crap compared to ours – well maybe if you are with 3 or Optus you may be having some issues…

Get yours here.

Axiom re-brand Axiom.

May 10th, 2010

You may have noticed we look a little different today. Yes, we’ve rebranded.

Our previous identity had served us well for the last 4 or 5 years, but we felt it was time to update our brand to be more reflective of our culture and of the organism we have become. We’ve opted for a simple wordmark, bold but not brash, strong yet approachable, purposely confident, credible and timeless.

Our printed collateral maintains a similar brief; printed 1 colour with sophisticated clear foil embellishments. We’re busy rolling out the rest of the printed collateral, office signage and promotional material and will post a full suite for you soon!
