Services

Pocket Design is an independent collaborative studio that houses a unique difference. Led by director, designer and custom typographer Brett Piva, we are dedicated to blending traditional and digital methods to create truly innovative brand experiences. We aim to discover the values behind each project and share a brands personality when communicating with diverse audiences.
We construct and enhance brands through multiple and complex approaches in design using strong research and experimental techniques. With our varied processes, we've found sharing graphs or animations to describe our services to be an impossible task. Instead, sharing our unique qualities through every project we create is much more informative due to a strict diversity in the work we create.

Custom Logo Designs

Everything we create starts with a detailed sketch on paper. The approach to much of our logo design process involves discussing with the client; their vision, brand, and producing hand-drawn sketches, and/or custom hand-lettered designs well before any digital element is introduced.

This process is hands-on for both Pocket and the client who gain further insight into an identity they're not just receiving, but experiencing as it evolves to fruition.

We believe, that by nailing a design firstly with pencil on paper, is a crucial step for creating effective, functional and long-lasting logos that also retain a unique singularity through their hand-drawn origins.

Lettering and Custom Typography

Pocket has a strong dedication to Lettering. Some may even call it an addiction. We're constantly experimenting with hand-illustrated lettering, custom typography, and different approaches to hand-painted signs and murals.
Being trained in traditional letter forms from Block to Roman, Tuscan to Script, we’re always excited to use many hand-crafted techniques to share a stronger personality to every project we embark on.

Identity and Branding

Scrap the small talk. Let’s have a yarn. We’re keen to give your brand the customer recognition it deserves. That means using different approaches to research to gain a clear understanding of your business objectives and your audience.

We aim to give you an identity like no other whilst developing a strong personality that can be carried over through all of your marketing materials and brand collateral.

Work with a more creative approach to design which leads to loyalty and focused business growth. A strong brand contributes to your success whether it be a new idea, a product or unique service. We can help.

Urban Art and Murals

We’re old-school, not street. With a preference for a brush or roller in hand, we use traditional methods to create unique hand-painted murals. With every lick of paint, we’re forever moving towards larger projects.
Larger in scale, concept, and production; no wall is too big or too small for a mural that can breathe new life into an otherwise lifeless area. No surface is too difficult. Walls, floors or ceilings, we'll get you covered.

Gold Leaf Gilding

We think you’re worth your weight in gold. The mirror reflection and incredible lustre that gold leaf signage achieves demands a classy, highly visible approach to your connection with the public.
Gold Leaf was once the choice of only the finest shops, restaurants, offices, and solicitors that demanded a higher class of audience. We've continued to bend the rules in introducing this to a new and diverse range of clients.
Pocket Design has always endevoured to master the original hand painted techniques to achieve the greatest result in reverse gold leaf gilded lettering plus other glass gilding effects and approaches to mirror finishes.
A most elegant venue, cafe, restaurant, bar or any other business deserves the best lustre of signage for their brand. It won't take you long to notice how stunning and classic this approach to design really is.

Exhibitions
and Events

Since our beginning, Pocket has been driven to support a strong creative community through hosting exhibitions and events. Our first studio started within an art gallery after all.

In 2015, Pocket began the first instalment of Newcastle based MAKEit MADEit Conference. Curated and directed by Pocket, the event delivers unique presentations with Australian and International Artists, Designers and Makers. MAKEit MADEit has grown into one of Australia’s premier creative events for the arts, making and design communities. We're proud to have launched this event in our home city and look forward to discovering what the future holds.

Pocket regularly engages with the community through exhibitions in both solo and group shows across Australia and abroad. We’re passionate about the Arts and strive to make time for these more personal projects that connect us with a wider community of great friends in creative industries.
