Telling the Wadawarrung story
The Wadawarrung story is intertwined in the Wyndham Vale landscape, and has been over thousands of years. As a part of the Regional Rail Link project at Wyndham Vale Railway Station, Nuttshell was approached to tell their story through artefacts unearthed in an archeological dig that took place before the construction period.

Extending education into the wetlands
With a commitment to protecting and enhancing biodiversity throughout the municipality, the City of Stonnington has created a wildlife haven within the Glen Iris Wetlands. Nuttshell was approached to develop and produce an interactive and engaging signage program to extend education in the wetlands beyond the existing visitor centre.

Celebrating 175 years

A complete wayfinding strategy
A complete wayfinding strategy was designed and documented for the Shire of Campaspe. Our work culminated in a detailed and thorough strategy package including mapping, directional decisions and creative design.

Fresh and accessible reporting
The brief to revitalise Transdev’s Corporate Reports called for a fresher more accessible design. We responded with a light and playful design using white space, full colour imagery and a landscape layout to our advantage. The format of both Reports celebrates horizontal photography of long buses, trains and ferries, creating a synergy between content and design.

Heritage and integrity
The Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership is housed in a historic State School designed by the Government Architect Henry Bastow in the 1880’s. Nuttshell designed an elegant publication to tell the Bastow story.

A scientific approach...
With a creative brief to explore ’science’ in the newly designed school of sciences by Clarke Hopkins Clarke Architects, we took a collaborative approach with all stakeholders. The result is a fully integrated display that builds upon the foundations laid by the architects.
