Frost* Design (Sydney), working in conjunction with Neeson Murcutt Architects, designed new environmental graphics and signage for the Stanmore Public School library. They utilized a bright color palette, playful typography, and graphic elements to animate the spaces and provide hidden details.

Colorful identification signs and custom-printed recycled carpet tiles bring a sense of excitement to the library interior, while large-scale book quotes painted onto an external walkway animate the journey through the playground.

Frost* Design (Sydney) designed the garden-inspired identity for Matt Moran’s much-anticipated Chiswick restaurant in Sydney’s Woollahra. Every element of the design has a botanical influence, from the logo, featuring tendril-like typography, to the restaurant’s soft muted palette and sustainable materials.

Frost* Design (Sydney) recently completed an environmental graphics program for the Brisbane regional office of the Rio Tinto mining company. In support of an “Earth and Sky” interior concept by Geyer, the interior designers on the project, Frost created elements such as stencil-cut fonts, raw materials, and super-scaled photography. Contoured paneling creates a sense of topography in the lift core, while lithological patterns (geological map codes for rocks) bring otherwise functional surfaces to life.

Frost* Design (Sydney) provided identification and wayfinding for the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, which occupies the top 16 floors of the world’s tallest hotel, the landmark 118-story International Commerce Center in Kowloon. Led by Design Director Ray Parslow, Frost* created a jewel-like motif that mirrors the effortless sophistication of the finest luxury brands. Key signage elements were drawn from a ribbon of bronzed metal folded to create form.
