Bludot is a furniture design and manufacturing company founded by John Christakos, Charles Lazor and Maurice Blanks. Their goal is to “bring good design to as many people as possible” by creating desirable, useful and affordable products.
The main focus of this stationery system is the powder-coated steel business cards in four colors. Many of their products make use of this material, so we felt the stationery should incorporate this aesthetic. The paper pieces are produced with both offset and letterpress printing (by Studio on Fire).
X-Doria | Knoed | The Dieline
X-Doria is a simple and sophisticated package design for a collection of products for iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini and Galaxy devices. The simplicity of the packaging and the products are the main factor in the overall design. I really love this collection and the color scheme, the turquoise elements brings just enough color and attention to the packaging.

"Bouch Burger Bistro was created with the intent of perfecting the burger. Each burger has been carefully crafted to provide a unique and thoroughly enjoyable flavor. The burger is created from the ground up, which means the bread, sauces and spices are made in-house to guarantee quality. The concept is inspired by small specialty butcher shops, where products are hand-picked to ensure the finest and freshest selection for their clients. It was important for the brand to represent quality products, with a certain charm and friendliness."
Firmalt is a multidisciplinary design studio that provides unique creative solutions that develop and position brands. We create strong visual concepts that communicate clear ideas, add value, and differentiate from the competition.
Feral Brewing Company | Block Branding | The Dieline
Feral Brewing Company is an independent brewery that tasked Block branding to re-brand Feral. The results are that of a craft, bold and beautiful design.
"Despite the brewery’s strong following and reputation, its beer remains unknown to less discerning beer drinkers. Feral tasked Block with implementing a cohesive brand strategy across an eclectic portfolio of beers with the goal of increasing sales and commanding an on-shelf presence befitting one of Australia’s most awarded craft brewers. At the time of commission, Feral’s suite of award-winning beers sat within a fragmented look and feel, creating confusion for the brand and the market.
Block completed a brand and packaging overhaul that sees the brewery’s products unified under a solid look and feel, albeit with a uniquely Feral personality. The rebranding is handcrafted and distinctive without detracting from the company’s obsessive focus on its beers, flavours and ingredients. We went with an intentionally DIY, rough-and-ready aesthetic to match the company’s hands-on approach to brewing.
At a time when all the bigger breweries are attempting to combat the craft brew market and micro-breweries are popping up all over the shop, Feral remains the real deal — something Block wanted to convey with the rebrand. We felt the design shouldn’t look overworked or pretentious and so created the antithesis of the minimalist or ‘ye olde’ beer brands that are cluttering the market.
The branding process started with the purchase of an old photocopier for $50 so that the packaging and promotional material would be genuinely fresh and DIY. The explosion of beer labels has seen the beer cabinet become one of the most crowded retail spaces imaginable, so the look that Block has crafted owns its shelf space in a very ‘ballsy’ way – which is absolutely on-brand for Feral.”
NFC Coins | HD Design & Printing | UnderConsideration
We’ve been duplexing for a while in our shop. Once Google announced their support for NFC, we started testing different types of inlays within our duplexed sheets. The NFC coins here are a progression of this work. They measure 2.25 inches in diameter. The coins are 4 ply so they really feel like poker chips.
