We’re lucky enough to have picked up Australian clothing and apparel supremos Mr Simple as a new client this year.
We began working with them at the start of the year to develop and implement their new website design and things have blossomed from there.
Throughout the year we’ve traveled to their studio in Byron Bay to work directly with their team to refine their web strategy and increase the effectiveness of their SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and Conversion Rates.
So far it’s really paid off for them a 49% increase in search traffic over 2 months and a 50-60% increase in customer purchase conversion rates.
The big wild world of the web is a tough one, but Mr Simple are living proof of how a proactive attitude and a willingness to constantly evolve and experiment leads to nothing but good things.
They’re also proof that a designer is only as good as his client
Stoked to have been a part of this.

We”ve recently been working on this cheerful and flexible branding for Children”s learning aid company Read Think Learn. The brand features a playfully drawn crown logo (crown = success of course) and a quirky script with simpler refined logo options for more serious situations.
The hottest day of summer 4 meter surf… and I”m running around in the heat preparing and sending off our entry to New York for the Type Directors Club awards. Here”s hoping the subtle use of phrases like “I”m super optimistic!” will help in オンライン カジノ subliminally persuading the judges to award Otama the title of Typeface Of The Year.
Finally carrying on from India Part 1; Tim’s Typographic adventures in the land of color and spice.
Textures a plenty. Here’s a series of hand painted signs I’d encounter on my daily pilgrimage to the ITF studio.
Walking the streets was my favorite past-time in India. I’d always see weird and wonderful scenes but I’d rarely took the time to photograph it. Here’s one of a Lion attaching some posters on the roadside…
Interestingly, I noticed a strong sense of Mordernism running through the local design scene.
For example, across the road from my quant hotel was a giant bunker-like museum designed by le-carbousier (above), and just down the road from that sat a complimentary concrete construction housing the National Institute of Design, adorned by an equally modern Adrian Frutiger logo. Growing up in New Zealand, a country with heavy European influences, the closest I’d come to a piece of art or design by a Modern pioneer was in the pages of a book or the internet. So imagine my surprise when I travel to India only to become surrounded by Modernism!
This bizarre modern building was also opposite Le Corbusier’s museum, I never found out who designed it, what it was called, or what it was for, but it certainly stands out from the typical Ahmedabad landscape.
Ahmedabad is an old and historical city at the best of times, but walking through the dark, layered and twisting paths of the old city really do make you feel like your walking through a piece of Medieval history.
Being from New Zealand, the first thing I did in India was play Cricket. Whenever I told someone where I was from, they’d reply with “Aaaah, Daniel Vetorri! Cricket!” And I’d usually be handed the nearest cricket bat. Heres one of my cricket teams…
One of my favorite things were these awesome mosaic seats all throughout the city. I never ever saw anyone using them though, it was usually too hot, wet, or mosquitoey to be worth siting on.
I did some work over there too. Some of that will be coming soon…
Unbelievably epic playgrounds designed by the creative minds at Monstrum in Denmark. Might have to work on developing a specialised playgrounds department at The Suburbs?
