Old work colleague and friend from Rock Star Recipes, Cam Findlay, is now part time free lancing as a web/IT consultant. He’s a clever cookie when it comes to all things web programming. Cam is speaking at a Silverstripe meetup in Wellington and needed some business cards asap. Here’s what we came up with!

Coffin Bay National Park, South Australia

Posted by Simon Waterhouse

Over Christmas, I spent 2 weeks in Australia visiting my family who all live in Adelaide. Adelaide if often the hottest city in Australia at that time of year (commonly exceeding 40degrees), so fortunately my family had arranged for us to spend a week on the coast in Coffin Bay National Park, on the Eyre Peninsula, some 10hours drive from Adelaide. The national park itself features massive sand-dunes, coastal scrub, more wildlife you can poke a stick at and some truly stunning beaches. The peninsula forms an inlet with sheltered warm water with no waves. As a contrast, the south-western side of the peninsula is open to the elements of the southern ocean, and features dramatic surf beaches, scenic cliffs and plenty of wind. Check out the photos of this beautiful part of Australia.

Bivouac Sale Flyer – February 2011

Posted by Simon Waterhouse

I recently completed the graphic design for the sale flyer and associated newspaper advertising for the Bivouac Summer Sale. Bivouac is a nationwide outdoor clothing and equipment retailer. I also supplied the background image, which features my partner Dani, and was shot in 2007 at Wharariki Beach, near Collingwood, Golden Bay. The brochure is A4 folded to DLE, with the middle of the front page becoming the front of the folded DLE Flyer.

Paynes Ford!

Posted by Simon Waterhouse

Without a doubt, Paynes Ford, near Takaka is one of my favourite spots in New Zealand. Here, beautiful Golden Bay weather meets awesome limestone walls and idyllic river swimming – plus add in the notoriously laid back Takaka pace of life. Paynes Ford is a bit of a hot spot for sport-climbing, so to me this equates to the perfect holiday location. I was lucky enough to make three trips to Paynes Ford in as many months. The first two were just fleeting three-day visits, but the last was 12 days of solid holiday. Check out some of the photos from the trips below!
