Joe Chef Catering & Events, Byron Bay
Over the past three years, I have been employed by Joe Chef as a waiter and photographer. When he approached me to redesign his Menu and Client package, I had a clear understanding of his vision and target audience. Joe Chef's objective was to establish a fresh, elegant aesthetic while prioritising clarity and organisation.
Passionate about crafting extraordinary events, Joe Chef takes pride in utilising the finest seasonal ingredients to create personalised menus. His expertise extends to catering for both large-scale and intimate gatherings, not only in Byron Bay but also beyond its borders.
Work-placement: Flotsam Surf Film & Photography Festival 2022
At the beginning of 2022, I had the incredible opportunity to complete my work placement with Flotsam Festival at the Gold Coast. This experience opened up exciting new avenues for me. As the festival was making its debut this year, I gained insights into every aspect of the organization and worked on various design projects.
During my time at Flotsam, I had the chance to conduct research and create eye-catching posters, flyers, and social media tiles. I also contributed to enhancing the Flotsam website on WordPress, curated social media content, developed media kits, and prepared photographs for different types of prints, including posters, panels and screens.
What made this experience even more special was my involvement in the festival beyond being a designer. I was honoured to showcase my photography through prints, big screens, Instagram tiles, and slideshows. Additionally, I got to be part of the Mentor short documentary film Project. Being both a designer and an artist at the festival was a remarkable experience that enriched my skills and allowed me to leave my creative mark.

This first edition brings photographers from around the world together and displays the variety of surf photography. It's a way to share the stories behind the camera, showcasing different perspectives, visions, and ideas through captivating images. We all come from different countries and cultures, each on our own unique path. Our journey, filled with our stories, makes us unique. With this magazine, I encourage you to explore intriguing short stories from their adventures and experiences.

Major Project Collaboration Work with Juan Marcos Micozzi
I was honoured to collaborate with Marcos on his Bachelor's Degree Major Project. He is a talented Virtual Reality Audio Engineer from Argentina based in Byron Bay.
We brought his captivating book, XYZ// Sound Sculpture, to life together. This project explored the fascinating connection between gestures and sound through the medium of Virtual Reality. I had the privilege of handling the design aspect of this project.
Marco envisioned a creation inspired by the Bauhaus and Swiss styles, emphasising minimalism, simplicity, geometric forms and organisational precision.
I aimed to infuse his vision with vitality, highlighting his unwavering dedication and passion through my design concepts.
Major Project Collaboration Work with Anna Tomaszewska
At the start of our Major Project, Anna presented her idea, which immediately piqued my interest. As someone who grew up immersed in music and being a musician myself, I've always been captivated by diverse genres, sounds, and instruments.
Our unique perspective as non-Australian residents allows us to approach listening differently. Anna's primary focus was capturing the sounds surrounding her daily life on the East Coast. Her project, titled 'The World Through The Ears Of Ambisonics,' takes us on a mesmerising audio journey through the melodies of Australia, offering a three-dimensional 360-degree immersive experience.
My objective was to find a means of translating her perspectives and recordings into visually stunning designs. To achieve this, I incorporated some of my own photographs to transport people to the locations that inspired the songs. I utilised background soundwave patterns to convey the richness and depth of the audio and incorporated individual soundwaves to represent the diverse range of notes found in Australia.
Packaging Redesign / San Remo Spaghetti
San Remo is renowned for its exceptional Italian pasta products, all made in Australia. Their branding is distinct and effectively portrays their story and values. When designing their packaging, I carefully selected a Serif font reminiscent of 18th-century typefaces to capture Italy's rich history and love for food. To highlight their Australian roots, I created a design featuring the contour of Italy filled with aboriginal patterns and colours, showcasing the 100% Australian-made aspect. The packaging is printed on eco-friendly cardboard, giving it an organic and sustainable feel.
Lino Cut - Pattern & Colour
Throughout this project, I discovered the LinoCut technique, which involves creating a repeating pattern. My goal was to choose a letter and arrange it creatively to make a design suitable for fabric or wallpaper. I picked the letter "A" using the font "Allumi Std Extended Inline - Black 24" to achieve a gothic style look. To evoke feelings of energy, joy, courage, and power, I decided to use dark red and yellow colors.
