The agency’s logo is derived from a playful amalgamation between Auguste Rodin’s Thinking Man and movie character Tinkerbell, and is formed in neon at the entry. Two huge bluestone boulders sit below, a nod to the history of the Richmond area and of course the stone that Rodin’s sculpture sits upon. Following a path of ironic ‘office grey’ carpet, you move beneath the woven canopy of coloured string; another thoughtful nod to the buildings past use. Passing meetings rooms and shared workspace, you arrive at the monolithic reception and kitchen/bar bench which is an impressive bespoke resin design by artist Tina Alesi.
The office design is driven by the whimsical, with spaces that encourage creativity and collaboration. Brainstorming booths are seemingly suspended from the ceiling, original Ansett chairs sit in reception spaces, a faceted mirror wall creates an optical illusion, custom decal graphics identity spaces pictorially and workstations ready for employees to cook up their magic are set up like labs.
Custom commissions for the project include;
Wool installation - Peter King Studio
Resin tar and table tops by artist - Tina Alesi
