  • Photography & Design: ANZ Centre Architecture Brochure

     The angular East-facing quarter of the ANZ Centre in Melbourne's Docklands

     

    My work on two assignments culminated in this—a brochure intended for use by an architectural firm. This was a fantastic chance to get outdoors and produce a record of some truly incredible environmental design.

    To begin, phase one involved photographing a chosen building of no fewer than ten stories somewhere in Melbourne at several different times of day from a range of angles. My choice after much delibration (and some early success in test shots) was Hassell's corporate wonder, the ANZ Centre, situated in the rapidly expanding Melbourne Docklands.

    Phase two then gave me a welcome opportunity to get stuck back into one of my favourite realms: graphic design; creating the layout, type styles and additional vector graphics to finish with a brochure that's press-ready.

    All raster images/artwork were created in Photoshop, some shapes were drawn in Illustrator, and the final product with all of its type was laid out and completed in InDesign.

    Equipment: DSLR, 17mm f/4L tilt-shift, 24-105mm f/4L, tripod.

    Software: Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign.
