Web design and development Adelaide - Arts


Working with directors and artisans

Asked to remember any of the 27 Adelaide Festival posters, most people mention the famous ‘burning Hills Hoist’ designed by Adrian Adams for Barry Kosky’s innovative program–imagery symbolising the heat and flair of the arts, perfectly combined with an industrial icon of the host city.

JABA created all marketing materials for the 2004 Adelaide Festival, working with Artistic Director Stephen Page to create imagery based around the theme of a ‘meeting place' – symbolised in Western cultures by a cross, in indigenous cultures by circles. The poster design incorporated both these elements and created an opportunity for the event's major sponsor, Adelaide Bank, to integrate their logo with the new image, using animation.

We created electronic marketing materials promoting the arts program within the Sydney Olympics: Festival of the Dreaming, A Sea Change and Reaching the World, including television graphics, interactive kiosks, electronic speaker supports and all print media.

The Nutshucker is a unique walnut opener that really works. A traditional Nut Cracker tends to crush the fragile walnut flesh, whereas a Nut Splitter lets you retrieve more, if not all of the kernel intact. Have fun opening walnuts and those pesky partially popped pistaccios the easy way with Nutshucker! Simply push the blade into the seam at the base of the shell and twist! JABA designed and produced the simple website.
