March 2015


I’ve been a long time fan of the artist Eric Abel. I love his style and story. Eric had already lived a very colourful life when one day he realised that “art direction” wasn’t for him and he decided to dedicate himself full time to his craft. You can find his inspiring story and art on his website here.

Today between jobs, I found myself day dreaming for a while and created a couple graphics. I have been drawing waves since I first caught one some twenty odd years ago. Since then my style has changed and evolved. These days I find my style aligning itself more and more with the artists that inspire me.

This one is very much in Abel’s style so I’m calling it “Eric’s Beach”.

Mixtape Margaret River

Brainstorm Design recently had the opportunity to join the creative cats at the new collaborative space in town – Mixtape Creative. Located at 4/47 on Station Road in Margaret River our new digs include the likes of Russel Ord Photography, Darren McCagh from Farmhouse Films, Mark Boskell from Elements Margaret River, Paris Hawken Photography, Donna McClelland from Designey and Matt Lewis who is in the midst of organising the fantastic Emergence Creative Festival.

The space is still growing and gaining character and we are happy to be part of it all.
It’s a great space to bounce ideas off each other and involve each other in projects.

Drop round sometime for a visit or check us out online at
