WHAT WE DO
OÙ design studio is a niche design practice based in Melbourne.
The studio specialises in graphic design solutions for government, semi-government organisations and corporates. Brand development, creative direction and strategic design are the studio’s strengths.
The studio has been operating for three and half years and has a flexible staff structure that utilises freelance staff to assist our core team, ensuring appropriate resources are available to achieve desired time frames.
At OÙ studio our senior designers take ownership of a project and are directly involved in the design process from the initial briefing through to the final delivery. We do not use account executives and prefer direct designer to client contact.
We believe this facilitates ease of communication, timeliness and promotes
Our team currently comprises of Directors Francene Collings and Samantha Kahl supported by Bora Lim - Senior Designer, William Ainger - Senior Designer and Lisa Power-Mirfin - Senior Designer.
Our aim is to develop socially, culturally and environmentally responsible products, ideas, information and assets. The studio draws on the strength of its professional team and collaborations with other accomplished creatives, writers and digital developers and freelance designers.
Our mission is to ensure our clients communicate, inspire and resonate with their audience in order to enhance their message. We place as much value in the journey as in the finished piece. Our process allows us to work closely with our clients, throughout every step, to ensure the outcome is accurate, highly considered and always intelligently crafted.
