Brand Identity &


A union of substance and style, your brand is how your customers see your business. It’s what makes you unique. It’s what makes you desirable. It’s shorthand for everything that makes you, you. 

Shorthand is an Australian creative studio. We combine expertise in brand strategy, graphic design, web design and communication to help businesses define their brand – to define who they are and how to engage their audience.

Whether a new brand or an established one that needs reviving, we work from the inside out. Distilling the substance behind your brand before articulating it across key touchpoints. Creating compelling work that is consistent at every level of customer engagement.

We develop long-term relationships, because a brand isn’t built in a day. Through ongoing brand development and communication, we ensure that our creative outcomes meet business objectives.

We work with businesses and organisations who are passionate about what they do in:

–  Festivals & Events
–  Not-for-Profit
–  Professional Services
–  Property Development
–  Retail & Hospitality
