Conlan Cummings Lawyers

Established by Gerard Conlan in 1971, Conlan Cummings Lawyers advise and represent in all areas of the law. Operating in the early days as Law 554 (featuring branding by Atticus), the firm recently took on its new business name when Elizabeth Cummings stepped up to join her father Gerard as Partner.

Atticus Design collaborated with the clever minds at By All Means to create a new logo and branding for the firm. The new logo represents the father/daughter professional alliance with the interlocking of the letters ‘C’ from Conlan and Cummings; one letter printed and the other as a silhouette, both complimenting the other.

The new branding needed to sit comfortably with the existing interior design and architecture of the building, while also reflecting the firm's well-established reputation of professionalism, integrity and style.

The business card features a clear foil pressed onto the green of the logo, printed on a beautiful stock by KW Doggetts, Strathmore Soft White. The project also included signage design on the street and in the reception area, a new website, and design of internal document templates.

Sustainability in Schools

The Australian Education for Sustainability Alliance (AESA) is comprised of organisations from the education, union, youth and environment sectors that want a higher prioritisation of sustainability in the education system.

Atticus Design was engaged to create a suite of design solutions for the Getting Started with Sustainability in Schools project - including identity, website design, illustration icons, and website development - aimed to engage educators on the topic of sustainability, and to encourage them to include it in their daily teaching. A responsive website was created for teachers to access and navigate content whether researching information out of class, or on the fly in the classroom.

Atticus worked with the clever chaps at Long Division Digital to develop the website for this project.

Limbs 4 Kids

Limbs 4 Kids provides support for children and young people with limb differences and their families. Limbs 4 Kids is a sub-brand of Limbs 4 Life, who provide support for amputees, their families, caregivers and health care providers. 

Our role was to create a logo and brand for Limbs 4 Kids using the same recognisable motif as that of its parent company: the number ‘4’ being made up of crossed prosthetic limbs. The new design featured the addition of a ‘thumbs up’ in the hand of the arm, embodying the spirit and energy expressed by the children and young people supported by Limbs 4 Kids.

Bright, energetic colours combined with modern, organic shapes have been applied across stationery, print, and digital platforms, capturing Limbs 4 Kids' positive and life-changing work.


ATEP (Apprenticeship and Traineeship Employment Partners) recruit, employ and induct apprentices and trainees in a range of trades across Victoria.

Atticus Design was engaged to conduct an extensive brand review, and then embark on renaming and rebranding the organisation. The new name, and strong and confident design, aimed to re-position ATEP as a leader in the industry. This new design was also applied to print, signage, and digital platforms.

The simple mark in the logo represents the support, development, and growth between an apprentice or trainee and their mentor.

Big West Festival 2009

Big West is a curated, multi-art form, multicultural festival staged biennially in Footscray and surrounds. The theme for the 2009 festival was ‘Home is Where the Art Is’, and explored the place of art in the everyday, how notions of art change depending on the cultural lens, and art as life (versus hidden in galleries and shrouded in theory).

We knew that the festival program included a large contingent of craft-based work (guerrilla knitting, woven architectural installations to name but a few) and our design needed to reflect this. The resulting festival identity playfully captured the image of a typical suburban home, complete with a trio of seagulls as wall decor. The image was entirely handmade utilising the skills of the local knitting club (bless their woollen socks). As you flicked through the pages of the program guide the wallpaper designs changed, as if meandering through different rooms in an actual house.

The festival identity was used across a long list of promotional material for the festival, and we even got to hang on to ‘Sid the Seagull’ as a keepsake. Apologies to Mum for never returning the knitting needles.
