Schiavello are one Australia's most recognised commercial fitout and construction businesses, with over 1200 staff locally and abroad.

Working in collaboration with Hassell architects, with a design inspired by the children's book 'Where the Wild Things Are', Schiavello's Melbourne showroom was transformed into a hidden urban jungle for the annual Saturday Indesign industry event.

Large scale exterior and interior environmental graphics covered expanses of glass across the showroom, while Hassell's interiors included life-size trees and a plywood monster who overlooked the thousands of visitors who came to the event.

Nasir Sobhani is an empathic barber who helps the homeless with the act of a free haircut, restoring their confidence and encouraging hope. His brand identity was developed to assist him in building his movement, and to support the world-wide exposure he has garnered.

Nas' contribution is not about the scissors that he holds, but rather the mirrors – enabling the vulnerable to see themselves in a new light. This key insight was the inspiration for his brand. Mirror frames surround the Streets Barber name and monogram, with typography inspired by Nas' vastly tattooed body. The identity is used extensively across Nas' social platforms, merchandise and short films, as he continues to build his movement from the streets of Melbourne to those of Moscow and New York.

The scale of the building's significant glass facade, internal atrium and accompanying warehouses placed a number of restrictions on the interventions. These were overcome through thoughtful design and specification of materials.

Working in close collaboration with the client and interior architect, the project featured new wayfinding, environmental graphics, a primary building brand and a graphic floor for the atrium space.

Child prostitution operates at the very underbelly of society. A growing threat, it irreversibly damages the lives of countless innocent children across the Asia Pacific due to poor socio-economic circumstances and weak law enforcement.

In conjunction with the launch of a detailed report into the region, ChildWise commissioned the design of a publication – Mind the Gaps – which seeks to educate audiences about the inherent risks.

The design of the publication captures the dark theme of the 'the underside', featuring abstracted night-time street photography and a typographic aesthetic which references law enforcement documentation.

Campaigning for survival +

Mercy

The Mercy Campaign was an extraordinary project, in a legal case which would divide the Australian public. The brief was to develop a campaign brand to help save the lives of two Australian members of the 'Bali 9', Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, who were on death row for trafficking drugs from Bali.

The objective of the campaign was to urge the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, to grant clemency.

The campaign theme was driven by the inescapable fact that the President had the final word, and that this word could only be one of mercy. An identity was developed which invited activism, enabling the organisers and public to write their pleas of compassion into the identity system. The typography and colour of the brand linked directly to the paintwork of Kerobokan prison, where they were being held.

The project was a collaboration with Reprieve Australia, and acclaimed Barrister Julian McMahon, who in 2016 was awarded Victorian Australian of the Year. The campaign aired across world media, but was unsuccessful in saving Andrew and Myuran, who were subsequently executed in 2015.

The publication takes its name from a message printed on the admission ticket to the Eiffel Tower which reads Valable Pour Une Entrée (Valid for One Entry), further symbolising the rarity and often singularity of the experience for many.

Pwn (pronounced Pown) is an energy gum developed specifically for the computer gaming audience, bringing more rapid performance benefits than an energy drink while reducing the associated health risks.

With the founder having developed a first generation product, a new identity, packaging and product design was required for the next phase aimed at seeking further investment funding.

The Pwn logotype and radiating colour scheme was inspired by the pixelated typography and screens of 1980's console games, re-invisioned with a modern treatment. The diagonal contours of the typography were further carried through to the production of the individual gum pieces, bringing a close integration of both the identity and product design.

This simple expression is implemented across all aspects of the brand, from collateral and packaging through to merchandise, signage and and social platforms.

Design has a profound ability to affect the way people think and feel – to question or provoke, enlighten or intrigue. When it is applied with conviction and purpose, it can influence change in culture and commerce.

Monib is a graphic design studio founded by creative director Monib Mahdavi. For over fifteen years the practice has worked across a broad range of disciplines, from brand strategy and art direction, to digital platforms, writing and publications, photography, signage and built environments. No medium or method is out of bounds.

The studio partners with forward thinking clients, local and international, who are passionate about their businesses and their audiences, and seek to create outcomes that can transform emotion into action.
