Studio of the Year 2018
Christopher Doyle & Co

"Christopher Doyle & Co have consistently produced work that is on the leading edge of creativity and design. Their design craft, writing style and art direction has produced a body of work over the last 12 months that sits across arts, technology, business and design. Tailoring brand identities for small business like Tom, Mark, Henry and promotional campaigns for the global giants like Spotify, their work is apt and concise. 

Chris Doyle himself has also been busy providing pearls of his unique wisdom to designers through a number of speaking events. Everything Except Design was an informal panel event held in both Melbourne and Sydney that captures and convey the importance of life outside of work. He also spoke at The Design Conference in Brisbane as well as New York’s Brand New Conference in September.
 
The studio is also the creator and driving force behind This Is Not University — an integral mentoring and career guidance initiative aimed at bridging the gap between full-time education and full-time work. 
 
Their involvement with bettering the industry is admirable, their professional output in the last 12 months has been exceptional, and they are just some of the most incredible people I’ve ever been lucky enough to both work with and call friends.
