The coasters have been produced and are now available!!
This is the design – the design brief from the client was to include all the Australian State and Territory floral emblems featured or surrounded by the Australian floral emblem – the golden wattle (Acacia pycnantha).
The other part of the brief was that there was no real ‘up’ and so the coaster can be swung around in a circle to reveal each of the emblems.
It was a more rushed job than I would usually take to design with only 2 weeks from start to sending the final print to them. Looking at it I would usually take some time to ‘live’ with the design and tweak it over a few weeks at least until I was really happy with the final result. Unfortunately I didn.t have this luxury which is the downside of this type of commission work.
