The Common Bistro

Brainstorm Design was engaged by the folks at the Margaret River Hospitality Group to create a new brand for one of the favourite venues of the locals down in Gnarabup. The Gnarabar as it was previously known was to become The Common and we needed a brand to attract families, corporates, hipsters and alike to a venue that would welcome them and give them a place to enjoy craft beers, fine wines and delicious food.

The Common was launched in August and is enjoying roaring success so get on down sometime and enjoy a beer on the sun soaked verandah!

Pen on Paper

A little exploration of pen on paper illustration.


Local friends of ours and owners of Down South Entertainment invited us to their Artist Party where we were set free on the walls of their soon to be knocked down beach shack in Prevelly , Western Australia.

It was a great get together with many great pieces going up inside and out of the house.

We returned the next day to grab a few snaps of our piece.


As an illustrator and artist I am constantly exploring with the old pen on paper. Some of these sketches might make it into this section. Feel free to have a browse and see what passes through my brain.
