Pocket is lead by Creative Director, Designer and Letterer, Brett Piva. Brett specialises in bespoke, hand-crafted lettering, signage and murals – and his skillset means the unique elegance of a handmade aesthetic is woven through all of Pocket’s creations.
A curious mix of ultra-modern and old-school, Brett has studied and worked in the traditional trade of signwriting throughout his career, and is dedicated to the craft of hand lettering and its culture. But he has also designed with agencies in London and Sydney with a portfolio including work for heavy hitters like Coca Cola, Cadbury, Virgin Mobile, Disney, Kodak and Subaru.
Over recent years he has travelled throughout Australia and the world to conduct research and collaborate with everyone from traditional signwriters in little country towns, to world renowned artists, and continues to lead workshops that pass his hard-won skills to new devotees.
