Awards and Achievements

  • Avant Card Postcard of the Year

    The aim, create an exciting and interactive way to advertise The LEGO Movie. My concept of a 3 tier spinning wheel card that let's you mash up the LEGO Minifigure characters from the film was the perfect answer to Roadshow's brief. How to make a 3D toy as interactive and fun on a 2D plane. The campaign was a huge success. From 50,000 cards printed and distributed through Avant Card’s network, only 313 were returned for re-distribution. The design went on to win Avant Card’s Postcard of the Year award.

The postcard can be planted in soil and if cared for correctly, flowers will grow.

About Fabian

I am a mid/senior level designer with 8 years of professional experience. In my current role I manage a small design team in a busy studio. I am responsible for managing creative campaigns from the brief through to completion.

I have had the pleasure of working with a wide range of clients from all sorts of industries. My role is to ensure clients are provided with creative solutions and high quality design. I pride myself on my ability to think creatively, to lead a team but also be and active and supportive team member.

I am the kind of designer that hears the brief, immerse myself deep into the project and comes up with the kind of solutions that can make the project own-able, recognisable to the brand and the purpose it is intended for. Think, what has been done before? How can we make it better? And what can we do to inspire the words “Wow, that’s different”.
