By | Recent Commissions

Axiom are very excited to announce that we’ll be working with Bailey’s Group and Discovery Parks to deliver an integrated Wayfinding and Interpretive Signage Package to this fantastic new project at one of Western Australia’s most iconic and popular tourism destinations.

The first purpose built new accommodation on the island in over 30 years. Glamping comes to Rottnest Island! Nestled behind the dunes of the iconic Pinky Beach, one of the most relaxed and breathtaking coastal locations in Australia, Discovery Rottnest Island is an eco-resort with a difference.

Featuring 83 eco-tents, Discovery Rottnest Island appeals to experience-seekers who appreciate being close to nature, but with all the creature comforts of a hotel or resort. Central to the property is Pinky’s Beach Club. The best place on the Island to watch the sunset, the Beach Club is set to become a social mecca serving locally inspired dishes and cocktails. Boardwalks between eco-tents, the resort pool and Pinky’s Beach Club ensure the landscape is undisturbed and enables flora and fauna to continue to move and grow freely.

Discovery Rottnest Island is a partnership between two companies with a shared commitment to Western Australia, Rottnest Island and the tourism industry.

Clearly I’m getting old, there is a buzzword that many of today’s youth use to describe their daily modus-operandi. This word grated with me the first time I heard it and has continued to as its use increased – that word is ‘hustling’.

I would surmise the term most probably entered the vernacular via some hoodie wearing ‘guru’ at an overpriced ‘how to be an entrepreneur’ seminar. I understand the implied modern context being: To have the courage, confidence, self belief, and self-determination to continually work at, and to explore any and all opportunities to achieve what you want in life. Though more traditionally us ‘older folks’ tend to understand the term to mean you were a fraudster or con-artist.

Axiom to deliver iconic sculptural interpretive installation for world heritage listed Fremantle Prison

By | Recent Commissions

We are delighted to announce that Axiom has been awarded the opportunity to deliver an iconic sculptural interpretive installation for the world heritage listed Fremantle Prison.

Axiom have a long lasting association producing award winning interpretive signage and exhibition works to this important tourism destination and are excited to again be working with the Fremantle Prison team to deliver another important project. This project will depict the original use of the ramp as an arrival point for convicts. The ramp was the primary pathway along which convicts were led between the prison and convict transport ships anchored at Fremantle Port.

We will be developing an interpretive sculptural piece so that visitors to Fremantle Prison will be able ‘walk in the shadow’ of Western Australia’s convict past, the piece will depict a group of life-size convicts and pensioner guards on their arrival to Fremantle, highlighting the ramp’s significance as a historic convict pathway.

More information on Fremantle Prison.

Update: Following the culmination of several months work, a collaboration of artists and storytellers as well as a talented team of steel fabricators – the installation is now complete!

The amount of job ads I’m seeing lately worded similarly to;

A fantastic opportunity for a Marketing ‘xxxx’ exists! We’re looking for somebody to join our team that is a creative yet strategic thinker with great design and branding skills, who is an accomplished and creative copywriter and content marketer. They will of course have proven experience in web design and programming and also be gun at Google Adwords, SEO and lead generation……

Well, hate to be the negative Nancy here, but in my 20+ years experience, I’ve not once come across an individual as accomplished as this — and if I had, they’d work for me and I’d be paying them very, very large $$ to stay, heck, I’d happily even give them equity because they’d have more skills than me!
