Studio Friday are a contemporary graphic design studio located on the muddy banks of Lake Illawarra. Specialising in brand development, logos and web design, Studio Friday operate with a strong desire for excellent design.
Breaking free of the corporate grind, in search of a more simplistic way of being, we translate our off-beat attitude into raw and refined design solutions. We are proud locals who love working with the local community.
We see design as a holistic process which is so important because it determines how a brand is perceived by the public. We take what our client is trying to achieve and make it a visual image to improve their positioning in the market place.
We believe open dialogue and collaboration with our clients is the key to lasting and gratifying projects. We are an intentionally small studio— each partner is an active practitioner and crafts the work we do.
