What His Clients Have To Say

What His Clients Have To Say

"Yianni understands our brand and produces beautiful design that we’re extremely proud to present to our stakeholders.

He takes on all work with enthusiasm, is eager to find creative solutions, and helps us achieve great outcomes for our business through his thoughtful communication and design craftsmanship.

I wouldn’t hesitate recommending his services to anyone. We love working with Yianni.

Sarah Crowder - Adelaide Airport
Retail Marketing & Events Manager

"Yianni helped me leverage my IP and become incredibly easy to buy. 

Our gorgeous branding ensures we stand out from our competition, and our laser-focused positioning helps us only attract the customers we want.

Through his brand strategy process, we now have a clear understanding of our ideal customers and exactly what we need to do to satisfy them. As a team, we spend less time and money on what ‘might’ work, and more on what we know will work.

The quality and quantity of incoming leads is significantly higher. Thanks to the new website, more often than not, customers are ‘sold’ before even talking to us." 

Jaquie Scammell
Founder & CEO

"Yianni has a great ability to know what works and to guide my thinking about how to communicate complicated ideas to my clients in a clean and simple way.

I have been working with Yianni for over 12 months on the design of several collaterals for my training business, including the artwork and images for my book: Urgent!, published by Wiley.

He is easy to work with, and always ready to have robust conversations about what serves the work best. He provides a different perspective, and is able to execute quickly and deliver high quality design.

I would not hesitate recommending his services to anyone."

"Absolutely love working with you!

You have such a calm and quietly confident demeanour which is exactly the type of energy we need in our team!" 

Dani Bartolini - Rock Up Group
Business Manager

"Yianni is a pleasure to work with for two reasons.

Firstly, he is a pleasure to have around the office. Secondly, his execution is top drawer. And when your feedback may be taking things off course, Yianni has the ability to steer you in the right direction."

A Little About Yianni

A Little About Yianni

Born in Melbourne in the spring of '91, but grew up in Adelaide.

Yianni as a toddler

After high school, I studied architecture for two years before moving back to Melbourne in 2012 to pursue graphic design. I graduated from Swinburne University in late 2014 with a Bachelor of Communication Design, and in January 2015 jumped at an opportunity to work in the family business, awpl, as the sole graphic designer.

The business evolved dramatically in the years to follow, and as a result, so did the Design Team; growing from a one designer to a team of four.

Since 2016, we worked intimately on several successful major pitches, branded Australia and New Zealand's leading travel retail stores, and helped to implement a permanent culture and training program. It was a constant pleasure to be a part of this team.

From early 2018, I started the next phase of my career as an independent brand and communication designer.

Outside of work you would probably find me with my family, my mates, playing shortish single player videogames, watching Liverpool at 5am, catching the newest docos or movies.
