Drew Buckmaster
I still see myself on a learning curve. After working for several design companies in London, I took a big step and came to Australia. That was 1994 and I've been here ever since. And I love it. I have been a citizen since 1996. I have extensive experience of design for print publishing, online publishing and brand management along with excellent drawing, visualisation and illustration skills. Outside the office I enjoy being a dad, design & Illustration, photography and cinema. I'm a Virgo with a good sense of humour.
Previous companies I have worked for include:

  • Senior Designer - Impress Design
  • Senior Creative Designer - Thomson Reuters
  • Design Manager - JB Fairfax Press

graphic Design


We are first and foremost a design company but the effectiveness of our designs must be judged by their commercial success. In order to achieve that success we build our designs on solid strategic foundations. We recognise, however, that we must also provide exceptional value for our clients. This means that we are attractive to small companies looking to enter the market for the first time as well as large established companies that need to continue to grow their brands with ever shrinking budgets



An illustration is a displayed visualisation form presented as a drawing, painting, photograph or other work of art that is created to elucidate or dictate sensual information such as a story, poem or newspaper article by providing a visual representation graphically. We can draw, paint, sketch, render illustrations and compose creative drawings as well as provide 3D mock ups for products and packaging.



The most basic role of a logo is identification, it acts as a flag. But it is more than that. It stands for a set of values. It is an essence, a concentration of an organisation and the way that it does things. This is the real role for the designer; how to condense a complex layering of values into a simple shape. Our work covers corporate identity and branding, icon design and type design. We aim for original creative solutions that will keep adding value for your company over time.
