    Life aquatic

    Five fabulous sculptures by local artists exhibited around Secret Harbour Square attracted locals to view and vote for their favourite on an accompanying iPad. Proceeds from their sale at auction was presented to the deserving groups. Our vibrant project creative reflected the marine-themed artworks and coastal location.

    Wishing you a blooming bright summer break!

    We're on holidays from Friday 21 December. The studio will reopen with a flourish on Monday 7 January.

    Getting Crafty

    Studio Life
    From learning how to make fruit rockets to designing your own eco-bag, kids spring craft activities and cooking demos required a fresh, fun promotion. Our watermelon popsicle animation did the trick! Applied to in-centre and online advertising the campaign promoted Pacific Square’s school holiday program, encouraging creativity and healthy food choices.

    Green wall

    As Australians transition to being plastic-bag free, Charter Hall’s Gordon Centre invested in a thoughtful borrow-a-bag initiative to help locals and the environment – because who hasn’t forgotten to bring their own bag?

    As a permanent installation shoppers are free to collect an eco-bag from those hanging on the wall and return it empty on their next visit. We came to the party with a leafy illustration which promotes the centre and guarantees the wall is looking the goods even when the bags are out on duty.


    Behind the scenes

    Studio Life
    The Ikon crew were thrilled to have famed photographer Petrina Tinslay drop by to capture the not-so-still life of our studio through her remarkable eye. We love these vignettes and the beautiful work she did with us on Butterflies and All Things Sweet.

    Like a Local

    Studio Life
    What happened when Tamworth Square shopping centre asked us to create a blackboard style mural for their food court pop up? We pumped up the country music and started sketching. It's all about what Tamworth does best: fresh produce, music culture, farming and country life. We’re digging in to this town’s charm.

    Salute Smartstone

    Studio Life
    Oysters and champagne are two of our favourite things, especially when teamed with a smartstone honed surface. Borghini Naturale debuted in style as the Art Bar at Melbourne’s contemporary interior design event DENFAIR 2018. We took care of appearances in the show guide with a full page ad launching Smartstone’s lush Naturale Collection. Salute!

    Indelible Influence

    Studio Life
    We’re so sad to hear that Alun Leach-Jones left the world behind on Christmas Eve. Whatever he turned his hands to throughout his inspired career has left an indelible influence on the fields of painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking. Working closely with him on his retrospective book was such a privilege, check out the blog post from back in the day.
