Pattern for Yemen was an initiative by A Friend of Mine and The Souvenir Society enlisting the help of 15 local and international artists that helped raise funds for the crisis in Yemen, one of the largest humanitarian issues currently facing the global community. It was a night filled with laughter and generosity, and together we have raised and donated $40,000 for the Unicef Yemen Appeal!

Hazelbrook Legal is a Canberra-based strategic legal advisory firm, whose clients are at the centre of their business. We worked together to renew the brand, solidify Hazelbrook’s tenor to intelligent yet human, and to communicate that they are equipped to mark their position within the industry.

The full stop or ball motif that is used in the brandmark, marque and art direction traces the journey Hazelbrook Legal takes with their clients, as well as signposting a resolution and positive endpoint. The suite of brand applications is tactile
and refined.

The series of art directed 3D animations brings Hazelbrook’s brand narrative to life — the ball traverses contours, avoids obstacles and arrives safely after navigating complex and challenging terrain.
