Behind the 'blong - Performance Anxiety

Welcome to the second installment of 'behind the 'blong'.

This exciting, cutting edge series takes you behind the scenes of one of the most talked about and controversial graphic design studios in Brunswick St - Oblong + Sons.

Today's entry showcases the Performance Anxiety journey. Our very 'hands on' designer, Jenna, decided to get a little scratchy with this promotional campaign for nationally acclaimed performer and choreographer, Brian Lucas.

Jenna sourced some really cool paper where the top layer of paint was able to be scratched off, giving the piece a very edgy, anxious appearance.

The angles she used to frame the type were taken from the angles in the accompanying photo of Brian. We reckon the result really captured the rough, confronting feel of the show.

Let your fingers do the clicking

Why do we need the Yellow and White pages books in these futuristic times of the world wide web?

I can't remember the last time I used one. They just take up precious space in my cupboard and make me feel guilty every time I have to move them to get to the vacuum cleaner. I know they're probably recycled, and Sensis claim to be carbon neutral, but not making them at all would make them even greener if that's what they want to be.

There's a little number you can call to stop receiving these stinky paper blobs, it's 1800 008 292.

Save a few trees and use the internet to do your Yellow and White Pages searching.
