Prints now available at the Boheem Shop!

Prints now available at the Boheem Shop!

We are really excited to announce the launch of our new range of typographic prints, now available at the Boheem Shop as well as at our Etsy Store. We’ve framed a couple of them and have them hanging in our own homes, and they are already proving to be really popular. Some of these ideas have been bubbling away in the background in between client projects for a while now, so it’s really nice that we’re finally able to share them with you. We hope you like them!
Farewell Chantel, we will miss you so very much

Farewell Chantel, we will miss you so very much

The studio is so quiet this morning. I’m not really sure how to start my week without seeing Chantel’s cheery face and hearing all about her weekend. Friday was her last day here, after 4 1/2 years she’s moving on.
What a girl, what an absolute treasure. We consider ourselves very lucky for having had her as such an integral part of the team for so long. Chantel’s beautiful work is a result of a perfect combination determination, dedication and care for what she does. We will miss her so very much, and undoubtedly our clients will miss her too. 
Thank you Chantel for your sincerity, for bringing your smile every morning, for the thousands of cups of tea at 9am and 3pm, for embracing whatever craziness is going on – client fun runs, blog entries, Rizzeria printing, AGDA nights, book club, gingerbread houses… we sure have had some good times.
The Art For Jungle Project

The Art For Jungle Project

Just letting ya’ll know about a little art show which is on for one night only next Thursday 28th June, 6pm at the Lo-Fi Bar, 383 Bourke Street (above Kinselas on Taylor Square), Darlinghurst. It’s called The Art For Jungle Project, and it’s an eclectic collection of art, design and jewellery with contributions from artists across Australia. The purpose of the exhibition is to raise funds for Greenpeace, so they’re collecting $5 donations at the door. I’ve handed over a couple of my etchings as well as two of Boheem’s not-yet-launched typographic screen prints. Hope to see you there!

How International Design Awards

Another feather in the cap – Hurrah! One Tree Coffee Co. branding continues to show its popularity with its ‘Miscellaneous Merit’ award in the How International Design Awards.

Roads & Maritime Services

Roads & Maritime Services


Perhaps one of our proudest achievements to date (hard to say really, it’s hard to compare highlights!) is that we have been selected to be on the design panel for the Roads & Maritime Services – previously RTA NSW – for a five year appointment. We’re really looking forward to working with the team at RMS, we feel sure that there’ll be wonderful challenges ahead. I want to do a little dance – to the tune of ‘We got Annie’…

Graduate position at Boheem

Graduate position at Boheem


Pssst. We have our eyes peeled at the moment for impressive graduate portfolios and are keen to meet with the wide-eyed, enthusiastic, talented people behind them. Haven’t officially advertised yet, but get the feeling that very soon a Junior Graphic Designer position will become available at Boheem. No experience necessary; just a clever, conceptual approach to design, a happy disposition and a preparedness to help out with anything and everything. Send a pdf to Claire and Kass at jobs@boheem.com.au.

We be the judge

We be the judge

This year, I am most excited to have been invited to sit on the judging panel for the DIA (Design Institute of Australia) GOTYA (Graduate of the Year) awards. I love seeing the work produced by wide eyed, passionate students: I always find it really inspiring to see their fresh creativity, and interesting to see what trends are working their way through design schools. The work will be judged in two phases, and we will be meeting with the shortlisted students in the second phase. I intend to be as intimidating as I possibly can!! He he…

Last one ’til 2012!

Last one ’til 2012!


Thank you to all of our faithful blog followers for sharing another fantastic year with us. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and see you in 2012!

The Distillery Letterpress Excursion

The Distillery Letterpress Excursion


On my past few visits to New York City, I have paid a visit to Greenwich Letterpress in the West Village (visit their blog greenwichletterpress.blogspot.com). I have wondered why we didn’t have a similar printing press/store in Sydney, this was true until now.


Last Thursday evening, Chantel, Kat, Mei, Jo and I went on excursion to the grand opening of The Distillery Letterpress in North Sydney.


The smell of ink greeted us, and after a short demonstration where we saw the 1959 Heidelberg Windmill Press in motion we were sold! There is a special place for letterpress in every graphic designers heart, the textured, pillowy paper subtly debossed brings design to life.


We were impressed by the team at The Distillery, they really seemed to know their stuff – and their passion for the fine art of letterpress was inspiring.


To put it simply, letterpress printers are to printing what artisan bread makers are to baking – yum!

It’s a girl!

It’s a girl!


Claire and Aaron welcomed baby D’arcy Ruth into the world during the early hours of Saturday 10th September. 4 weeks early she took us all by surprise, but we are so happy she arrived safe and sound.


D’arcy is as cute as a button, and has become the 3rd Boheemian baby girl to add to our growing list.


Regular visitors to the blog will realise Claire does most of the posting for us… However with Claire now out of action for a few months, you are stuck with the rest of us! We are not as articulate as Claire and are sure to have apostrophes’ out of place and possibly the odd spelling misstkae, but stick with us and hopefully we will come up with some insightful bits and bobs.


Just a thought, if anyone would like to be included on the Boho Bandwagon send through your info and a couple of pics to studio@boheem.com.au
