Our directed working session with management and staff led to a detailed design brief supported wholistically by the group. The graphic objective became the humanisation of the interior spaces – primarily a response to the people oriented values of the organisation. Consultation with staff throughout the design process realised a desire to instill a sense of ownership of the space and the design approach.
Four visually distinct graphic schemes were developed to codify different spaces so as not to regiment the design – the intersection and layering of these distinct schemes physically and spatially allow the viewer to make their own meaning from the work.
In this way the works provide no resolved story but aim instead to generate an open-ended, meaningful experience within the individual. The conceptual thread connecting the works provide overall coherence and legibility. The four graphic schemes were produced by local creatives. An artist, a writer and two illustrators were engaged to respond to four sub-themes which delivered a series of bold and engaging works. These were applied to five floors and 40 sites throughout the space creating a comprehensive and integrated graphic scheme.
The interior graphics have succeeded in communicating a clear sense of the human or humane and established a more meaningful and engaging environment that clearly expresses the rich people-oriented culture of the organisation.

Through an independent assessment by our team in design, business operations and marketing, the case for brand change becomes clearer and developing the business case becomes easier.
A successful brand will accurately represent your organisation in all relevant markets, project the desired positioning and support the strategic business objectives. Evolving or renewing a brand is one of the most critical decisions your organisation may face and one that has the potential for significant market ramifications – both positive and negative.
We will quantify the value of your existing brand, its viability and relevance in specific markets, benchmark against your competitors, assess its suitability to represent the organisation and determine its remaining lifespan. We consider all aspects of the brand from the visual identity through to the day-to-day brand collateral.
The brandopinion results in a comprehensive document that will provide your business with the support to make strategic decisions for brand development and determine a case for change.
“The brand opinion developed by Working Images provided great clarity for our company in the early planning for rebranding. It gave us a really clear indication of the value of our brand, where it was working and where it wasn’t and from there we could move forward”.
Through a strategic, facilitated working session we will identify and define the aspects of your business that make it unique. Your business fingerprint that lies at the heart of your business.
To create a unique brand, your business needs to be distinguished by more than what it does. It must be defined by its characteristics, values and attributes – the innate qualities at the core of the business created by the business leaders and staff that define its vision, direction and strategic objectives.
A successful brand is a synthesis of what your stakeholders want and who the business is. A stakeholder is anyone that has a relationship with your business – the board, executives, management group, an associated investor group, your shareholders, clients or a niche market. All of these people have influence and therefore need to be considered in the development of a new or revitalised brand.
brandprofiling results in the development of a comprehensive document that will ensure your brand reflects the strategic objectives and embodies the qualities that make it unique. The process will also hone your core messaging, benchmark the existing brand and facilitate greater clarity at an organisational level. All ensuring differentiation in your market.
“what surprised us was the tremendous amount of clarity the brand profiling process brought to the whole organisation. It was not just useful for developing a brief for the new branding, it really helped us define an overall market position and singular vision for the organisation.”
