Dinosaur Designs latest range - Bird

Brochure page spreads from Dinosaur Designs latest collection 'Bird'

Just received a gorgeous mail-out from Dinosaur Designs about their new collection 'Bird'. The vibrant range of jewellery and limited edition objects is truly stunning... but I have to say I was equally impressed by the design of the brochure itself! A unique combination of inspired graphic collages by Dinosaur co-founder Louise Olsen, lush flowers by Saskia Havekes of Grandiflora (who else?), bold, striking photos by Derek Henderson and delicate handwritten text - all expertly intertwined by Melbourne design firm Mahon and Band.

On the back page of the brochure is a little information about the Gouldian Finch, a colourful Australian native bird whose population is declining rapidly.... For this reason it is explained that Dinosaur Designs will donate a percentage of the sales from their Bird collection to the World Wildlife Fund to support their ongoing work with endangered species.
