What we worked on
Over a five year period ESEM Projects helped this start-up government agency to deliver its message to Australia's creative firms through creative and professional design, photography and branding solutions.
Sarah led the creation of the CIIC website, creativeinnovation.net.au, a national digital resource to support creative businesses across Australia, while also establishing the program's industry research framework.
After Sarah's departure, Michael continued to support the CIIC through branding, design and portfolio design services.
Both Sarah and Michael also collaborated on the creation of a series of portraits of diverse studios and workspaces across Sydney.
