Axiom kitted out with iPad 2’s!

By | General News

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.

By | Recent Commissions

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.

After our introduction we couldn’t help but want to offer our professional services in a pro bono capacity to the LEARN Foundation to help them build their profile, fundraise and secure corporate sponsorships so that they can continue to positively change the lives of even more children each year.

Our iPhone 4’s arrived!

By | General News

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.

By | General News

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 web site is also going to get a major overhaul shortly. The blog will be kept but will no longer be the main focus of our web presence. Instead we’re developing an image-driven front-end that will feature a selection of our most recent projects for your viewing pleasure (yes, we’re finally going to have a portfolio on our website!)

Axiom (finally) join AGDA

By | General News

After years of contemplation and procrastination, we’ve finally decided to get active in our support of the graphic design community and join the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA).

As Australia’s largest representative association of professional graphic designers AGDA is the industry authority on all matters pertaining to Graphic Design. Formed in 1988 to facilitate the advancement of Australian graphic design, AGDA is recognised as the peak professional body representing graphic design in this country.

New Addition to the Axiom Family

By | General News

It’s just gone nine months since Ben (our Design Director) and his wife Chellé found out they would be doing their bit to help propagate the species. We are happy to report they have produced their finest creation yet, a beautiful little bundle of joy by the name of Amelia.

Amelia came into the world on the 27th of August. Mother and baby are doing well, father is getting used to the idea of long-term sleep deprivation.

Axiom rubbing shoulders with the world’s best

We just couldn’t help ourselves – the Directors are now fully sync’d 24/7 with our new uber-sweet iPhone 3Gs.

The reason behind acquiring these essential, productivity enhancing, labour saving devices – is of course to stay connected to our clients and studio from any beach, bar or golf course in the world.

If by chance you have been stranded on a deserted island in the Pacific for the last couple of years and have no idea what we are drooling talking about – have a gander at the website.
