A deck of cards inspired by Dashwood’s passion for typography. Each card featuring a letterform and copy briefly discussing an aspect of the particular typeface. Not just the usual who, what and when, but interesting usage and opinion.
The face cards were all illustrated by Dashwood with each character being based on one of their team, including Hamish Meikle, Creative Director and Andrew Gair, Managing Director being the two ‘jokers’.
Cards were sent to all of Dashwood’s clients and suppliers as a Christmas gift. Following the Dashwood tradition of ‘useful holiday gifts’, playing cards were the perfect item for a Kiwi summer holiday.

Brief: In conjunction with the release of third person military shooter SOCOM Special Forces for the PlayStation 3, GR/DD has created this unique media kit. The premise of the game revolves around a revolutionary army that has seized control of one of the world’s most vital waterways; threatening to disrupt the global economy. Your mission is to step into the well-worn boots of the Ops Com, a NATO Operations Commander of an elite, five-man squad and eliminate the threat.
Design: GR/DD has designed a unique inflatable, limited edition media kit that includes a set of documents designed to show off the game’s unique features, such as it’s PlayStation Move control and stunning 3D graphics, as well as housing both a game and asset disc. The design concept stems from the premise of the game itself, designed as an “Aqua Drop Package” dropped from the air and inflated on impact with the waterway, protecting the briefing documents within from the elements and surrounding water. Weapons chart, Move controller instructions, map, surveillance photos, game and assets disc and dog tags form the contents of this military themed briefing package.

“The CD package may be on the decline but that decline also creates an opportunity to stand out. For their new EP, Rabbit Children wanted to create a package that could be used as both a self promotion tool and appeal to their fan base. The limited edition letterpress printed package, which includes an insert with illustrations inspired by the band’s lyrics, was sent to music journalists and bloggers, radio stations and concert promoters. The packaging helped create awareness for the new release by standing out from the generic CD comps and digital download codes typically sent by most labels.”

“Brief: Create a sophisticated identity and packaging that reflect The Bitter Chocolatier’s luxury offering and ironic humour.
Solution: The brand has an edge. The elegant look contrasts sharply with its ironic humour. Poking fun at himself, The Bitter Chocolatier tells his tales of misfortune throughout his life through the different flavours. The product differentiates itself from other brands while entertaining the consumer.”

“This assignment was to create a game called Tower of Babble which is a building block game for a language of our choice. I decided to choose Basic Korean for children ages 1-2 that requires them to put these blocks together to form an image. Once it is done, you flip the game pieces to find the corresponding word in Korean and the English translation. I chose to illustrate kid-friendly illustrations and chose a color palette that references the Korean flag.”
