 I have an exhibition opening at Gadfly gallery in Perth on June 8 with papercutting artist Tusif Ahmad from Pakistan and ceramicist Avital Sheffer from Israel. It should be a very beautiful show, come and have a look if you are around.

"Runaway Boat" 2011

25.5.12

These are the new wine labels I have designed for Towerhill Estate in Mt Barker. They were recently awarded silver medals for their 2009 Riesling and 2010 Cabernet Merlot at the Singapore wine show. Towerhill Estate
Towerhill Estate was established in 1993 in the heart of the Mt Barker region of Western Australia where mild wet winters, well drained soils and warm, dry summers yield outstanding cool climate wines. Towerhill Estate excels in producing medal winning wines from low yielding fruit handpicked from responsibly tended, non-irrigated vines.
The weather is the powerful determinant of the character of the vineyard, the region and the wines created. The hill is to the west of the vineyard so therefore receives morning early light and then is a strong horizon line for evening light.The weather comes from the west and the sense of the presence of the vast ocean although 200km away, is strong and is the reason for the speed with which the weather changes.

 Hence my design for them has a strong element of weather.

Perth Upmarket in June

 I am very excited to have been selected for Perth Upmarket in June at UWA. This is a beautiful designers market and has an amazing reputation. I look forward to seeing my Perth friends, and also seeing the work of other designers- including my friends Shiny Rabbit (www.shinyrabbit.com)
