We use creativity to solve problems and transform businesses.
Design that works
Self-titled is a Melbourne based design studio, working across branding, communications, spatial design and digital solutions.
We work to intimately understand each client’s unique business, industry, target demographic and objectives. We develop strategies and creative solutions to business problems, building brands and revenue.
We are proudly sector and scale agnostic. Working across many industries with established players and fledgling start-ups alike.
The unifying aspect across all projects is a ‘brand first’ approach. At the heart of each project lies effective communication underpinned by a driving creative brand idea. An idea that works across communications, digital, physical and spatial platforms.
The result is clear, direct and memorable design that works.
A hands on approach
An agile team of designers, thinkers and doers, the business is led by Creative Directors Paul Monkivitch and Jake Smallman who head up every project in the studio. Having met whilst working at Cornwell, both directors have held senior positions prior to forming Self-titled, as Design Director at Designworks and Creative Director at Interbrand respectively.
Beyond our core team, we constantly collaborate with a best-in-category network of web developers, photographers, copywriters, architects and artists to deliver the most effective outcomes for each project. We work in an open and collaborative manner, always championing the outcome ahead of the individual, the idea ahead of the ego.
“While the studio has been awarded with industry recognition, our real reward lies in the success of our clients. Our studio name is a reflection of this.”
