Muse Magazine

Art direction and design for Sydney University's key museum publication

The Chau Chak Wing Museum is Sydney’s newest museum and brings three powerful collections to a stunning, purpose-built space at the University of Sydney. Located in the heart of the University of Sydney, the Chau Chak Wing Museum was designed to share the University of Sydney’s vast collections with the broader community.

The museum approached us to design the first issue of their quarterly magazine, taking cues from the existing brand that had been established by the Museum. We were also tasked to conceptualise and art direct the photography for the key features in the publication.
