As a Sydney-sider, here’s a look at some of the finest design agencies that I have come across in my time living here.
(In no particular order)
1. Toast Creative
Toast Creative is a branding agency that specialises in creating beautiful user experiences through strategic brand thinking. Toast means celebrating collaborative thinking that defines, crafts and evolves meaningful brands. Being open, aware and receptive to the world around us provides a springboard for innovation and progressive thinking.
Toast Creative work across many sectors offering a broad scope of design skills within brand and visual identity, strategic planning, user experience, typography, packaging, publication design, environmental and way-finding solutions, copywriting and much more. At Toast respect is the glue. It’s as much about giving as it is getting. We believe that mutual respect works from the inside out, and encourages collaboration, ideas and productivity. It’s important to recognise one another, to listen to and value each other’s contributions. Creativity is inherent in our people. We have a rich understanding of brands and the skills to support it. We believe respect and collaboration with our clients and partners ensure the best possible outcome.
Hulsbosch creates strategically effective brand identities in an over crowded and increasingly competitive environment. They have worked with many happy clients including Woolworths, Qantas, Masters, Virgin Australia to name a few.
Hulsbosch is the first Australian company to combine strategy, brand/product design and advertising. This was achieved back in the 1980’s for Qantas and Sitmar Cruises, so they have a long history in the Australian market. And it shows today by huge Australian clients such as Woolworths trusting them to create a completely new brand revamp.
Landor one of the most sought-after authorities on branding, design, and creativity. “Walter Landor invented branding. We’ve been reinventing it ever since.”
An international design firm, no doubt highly renowned and has nice roots in Sydney as well. Their design style seems very corporate and practical, but can be highly creative if allowed to be.
