Wenona wayfinding signage

A new building at Wenona High School in North Sydney, including swimming pools,
a gymnasium, STEM laboratories and a senior school common room, required signage which would complement the organic architectural design by Tonkin Zulaikha Greer. The sign shapes incorporate curves and angles found in the building forms and are constructed from Corian which has a marble-like quality and and is resistant to damage.

Austen Kaupe designed these portable stands and graphics to promote upcoming displays planned for the newly reopened Australian Museum. The stands are made from blackbutt veneered plywood with sandstone slabs for stability, which reflect the materials evident in the refurbished heritage building, and they slot together without the need for any fixings.

Australian Museum dinosaurs interactive

The Australian Museum required illustrations to be incorporated into an interactive display in their new Prehistoric Playground for kids. The dinosaur outlines are to be coloued in by visitors then scanned. The kids can then see their dinosaur roam around a prehistoric landscape, the future of which depends on the type of dinosaur they choose to add and what they eat.

Parq on Flinders wayfinding signage

Parq on Flinders is a residential and commercial development in Wollongong consisting of four blocks around a central garden with 224 apartments, 10 retail spaces and three levels of parking. Extensive wayfinding was required to help navigate the complex, and we used distinctive shapes, graphics and colours to help make the site unique. As the site of an historic coal mine tramway, heritage signage was also required.
