Gold Coast Graphic Design Profile

 

Gold Coast Graphic Artists

From humble beginnings!

It all began at the kitchen table of Kelly’s small apartment in Palm Beach (with her grandfather’s 486 PC) staying up late and taking on any job she could get her hands on. Kelly was determined to start her own business and through hard work and determination the computer upgraded and moved to a desk of its own, then a separate bedroom, then eventually a studio all of its own. After some great mentors and guidance the team grew and became a talented, award winning crew. Some of these spectacular designers still lead the studio and some have gone on to run their own successful businesses.

Now in a converted warehouse studio at Burleigh Heads the team prides itself on providing a creative environment small to medium business can come, work in person and experience a hands on approach to creating the visual identity for their business. The team has a strong emphasis on understanding how important it is for people to be connected to “The Dream” they are about to undertake of starting their own business

Kelly Robinson - CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Creative Director Kelly Robinson started designing from her bedroom, determined to start a business of her own. Through hard work and determination, Gold Coast Graphic Design has grown from humble beginnings into a large studio and team that has been thriving for 15 years. Kelly excelled through Kingscliff TAFE during her study and has been the recipient of numerous awards including TAFE NSW Graphic Designer of the Year, TAFE NSW Arts and Design – Design Prize, North Coast TAFE Student of the Year, North Coast TAFE Arts & Media Student of the Year. She believes that brainstorming and planning are crucial in making sure everything she does for clients is valuable and brings a return for them. A strong introduction process makes for a more powerful and connected outcome for all. ‘Having a plan always makes for more effective marketing, which leads to more profitable business for my clients.’ Kelly absolutely loves helping people plan their business, and always aims to help give them the biggest bang for their buck. ‘I get a kick out of seeing the excitement and freedom that starting a business gives my clients. If I can play any part in their amazing brave adventure, then I feel privileged.’ The projects that excite her the most involve food packaging and product marketing. She gets a huge buzz from seeing her creations and designs on the retail shelf.

 

 

JORDON CALLAGHAN - Senior GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Jordon Callaghan is one of our mid-weight designers on the team. After studying design at Coomera TAFE, he longed to work in a studio environment. Since arriving here, his skillset has grown tenfold. His design style steers towards clean, modern shapes with a geometric feel, and he loves utilising his unique style in different industries.

Jordon is fantastic at adapting to all personalities to tailor the experience and project for each client. He believes that there is no ‘one’ way to go about the design process, and understands that everyone has different needs. ‘I enjoy being creative and getting the chance to work with a variety of different people from different sectors of business.’ In the future (as a fellow coffee fiend), he would love to help brand a coffee shop from the ground up. ‘Creating a lot of collateral over time and helping shape the brand as it evolves is highly appealing to me.’

 

 

 

SKYE CRISP - GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Skye Crisp started her design journey at Billy Blue College of Design in Brisbane and now hones her craft here with the rest of the design team. She knew she wanted to do something with her life which allowed her to be creative every day and from day one at University, she was sold. 'I love that you get to flex your brain muscles with design, it’s so much more than making things ‘look pretty’… it’s communicating important messages visually and every day brings a new challenge.'

With a fine eye for detail, she specialises in combining bold graphics with illustration and is inspired by earthy and organic style brand design. 'I would love the opportunity to work with a sustainable/eco-based brand in the future.

 

 

 

Isac Pena - GRAPHIC DESIGNER
+ Marketing extraordinaire

With a wealth of knowledge and experience in Marketing spanning the globe (and skill for cooking!), GCGD was glad to have Isac Pena join our team in 2018. He has completed a degree in Advertising at FAESA in Brazil and went on to do his Masters in Marketing at EADA in Spain. Isac understands how business goals align with marketing strategies and has the skills to connect them through design. His parents worked in the industry long before he was born, and so being surrounded by it inspired him to pursue it as a career.

He loves the complexity of the field and his strength lies in creating meaningful branding that works from a marketing perspective. He also enjoys creating packaging design for beer wine and spirits. An exciting prospective project for him would be to create branding and marketing for a trendy beer brewery.

Another Happy Customer... “You did what we asked...our logo is so well recognised! Gold Coast Graphic Design – you guys rock!

An idea that is developed & put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea”. Kelly you made a huge impact on me from the moment we met at the coffee shop, from conception of my idea on the business you steered me in the right direction, as the whole process can be very overwhelming & very easy to become sidetracked. Jason, you have created the website that I visualised. After meeting with you & Kelly, within 20 minutes looking at the products & the logo you saw exactly what I did. The website is definatley not “run of the mill” it is in your words “sultry”. Thankyou.

Craig, thanks for your technological patience with me. The professionalism, the down to earth, personal & friendly service received from all of you was incredible. I will continue to recommend you guys for every aspect of your design services"- Monica Griffin Minx Bronzing & Cosmetics www.minx.net.au
