Over recent months we seem to have attracted more and more readers from Sydney and Melbourne but we don’t cover an awful lot of work from Down Under. It was a pleasure then to come across these really impressive new updates from Zé Studio in Sydney, set up by Joe Tarzia in 2011. In their online blurb they pin their design approach as “leaving no excess” – and this stripped back philosophy is easy to identify across their portfolio.
Recent eye-catching work includes a really subtle authentication card for photographer Ward Roberts (whose work we’ve long championed) as well as as really strong work for Italian restaurant grano and a neat identity for the Ristretto & Co café referencing the iconic Bialetti Moka.
