Triptych Penthouse Brochure

Graphic Design - Publication


Triptych is a premier boutique apartment address located in the heart of Melbourne's Arts and Entertainment precinct. Comprising of both affordable and high end luxury living options, we were engaged to create a high end brochure that communicated the luxury of newly available and exclusive Triptych Penthouse apartments.  The Penthouse brochure was to be used as a sales tool for both the local and international markets, and therefore inherently needed to reflect the rich values of the building and the luxury of the address via its tone, imagery and over all design.

Great Dane Catalogue

Graphic Design - Publication

- Winner 

Great Dane is Australia’s premier emporium for Scandinavian design. To mark the company’s 10th anniversary and announce its move from vintage furniture to cotemporary and custom made, Hoyne produced an audacious large format A2 full colour magazine. It has become a collector’s item amongst Great Dane devotees. To get maximum value from a limited budget the campaign focused on one application - a high- end publication in the style of a Scandinavian designer magazine. Key elements included bespoke typography with hand-crafted elements, photography as unexpected art pieces to inspire and surprise, finely-crafted intelligent copy, talking directly to an exclusive style-savvy audience, plus cross-endorsement from design authority figures for added brand credibility. Emphasis was placed on the fact that customers would not see the same collection anywhere else in the world. Hoyne combined believable lifestyle images with hand-sketched design elements and attached a tag line reflective of irrefutable Danish logic - “Buy well and buy once.”
