Matches & Geo Prints

8 Apr

il_570xN.543044547_gglgBelloPop has really taken matches to the next level. We have been pondering all day where we can use these.  Heck, we just like staring at them, maybe that is enough to convince us to buy a couple of these from her shop.

Free Printable Holiday Gift Tags DIY

We hope you enjoy our 2013 Holiday Gift Tags. Simply print them out on nice heavy card, cut them out, punch your holes and you’re done! You could even print them onto sticker paper and cut them out to create custom stickers.

We’d love to see how you use yours. Please tag us on instagram @thewondery or email your pics to hello@thewondery.com.au.



 Tips & Tricks:

1. Our number one tip is to print your tags on a good quality, heavy weight paper! Printing on standard copy paper will not do justice to your beautiful tags. We recommend a bright white matte card stock to ensure your colours pop!

2. To get crisp, straight lines we always use a metal ruler, X-acto knife and a cutting mat. When it comes to the curves, always use sharp scissors.

3. Reinforcing the holes with metal eyelets really finishes them off and protects your tags from tearing.


The Studio: Spring Design Elements

23 Oct

Photography & Graphic Design by The Wondery, Brisbane

We recently had the pleasure of working with the amazing marketing team at Westfield Carindale on a collection of pieces to support their new Springstallation. We had a blast creating these VIP invitations, gallery boards and digital pieces for this exciting art installation.

The unique floral masterpiece, designed by UAP and art directed by Kara Rosenlund, is on display in the high fashion precinct until the 28th October. It’s a perfect homage to our most colourful season, Spring!

This studio put together a fantastic illustration compilation of their favourite Australian birds. This design is part of their Garden Party range.

Geometric Yum

16 Sep

We’ve been head over heels for geometric shapes lately and it is nice to see it starting to emerge in the food industry. KYL21 is the reinvention of popsicles and a real masterpiece of avant-garde cuisine that’s both healthy and beautiful! It is a 100% Yoghurt and they even offer vegan versions. It was invented and developed by the designer David Marx, who is also the founder of The Kitchen Science, Berlin.

This could be the perfect addition for our record hot summer to come, but unfortunately these geometric yummies aren’t available till spring of 2014. Maybe next year.
