White Cleland Website31/03/2010
Avalanche have recently finished a job for White Cleland lawyers based in Frankston and Melbourne City.
The new one is much easier to navigate, makes much more sense and is SEO friendly
White Cleland are a multidisciplinary law firm which have 4 distinct client bases – often unrelated to each other.
We decided to split the website into 4 distinct areas that were differentiated by colour, but unified in style.
Check it out and tell us what you think!ReadMore

Great branding can be the very reason why clients and customers prefer doing business with you, over your competitors. Your brand encapsulates your companies values, personality, attributes and characteristics.
It tells the enquiring prospect who you are, what you do, who you do it for as well as what makes you different from the rest. In essence your brand should act as an attractor and filter to help you do business with the style of customers who will be good for your business.
Our good friends at the Linen Press have given us another packaging job to do after the success of our last range (The Kangaroo and the Koala range). This time it was time to package and brand the Australian Rosella.
The Australian Rosella is a species of colourful Australian parrots that live in forests, parks and gardens. They eat seeds and fruit and quite a hit with the locals and visitors alike!
As this is another souvenir range, we decided to package the range as a luscious gift parcel – stamps, strings, ribbons and postmarks are used to give the range a ‘lovingly packaged’ flavour, wrapped by a distant relative and sent all the way to your doorstep.
We scanned in some old postcards and lifted little lines and markings from worn paper to give the range a natural feel but kept it light and colourful to keep it fresh. Upon opening the package you will discover a lovely gingham print with some more information on the rosella. We’ve embossed the rosella to give it depth and used lashings of Spot UV Varnish to really bring out the highlights in this packaging.
This range contains wild rosella fruit extract and it smells delicious!! We hope you like!

Recently we created a logo for Classic Rods. They are a niche engineering company specialising in creating custom billet rods for classic cars (Specialised parts for classic car engines).
We created a versatile logo that referenced classic type and themes as well as incorporating the shape of their product in the logo. Secondary elements to the logo include a subtle shiny red ‘car body’ background. In a nifty trick, the logo can also be shortened to it’s initials (CR) by taking the last ‘C’ in Classic and the ‘R’ in Rods, allowing us two sizes of the logos.
Website to be developed soon!

The Worlds first Hybrid Bus!02/03/2010
When Avalanche got involved with the ‘Hybrid electric bus’ project via the ‘Department of Sustainability’ early 2009, where we were asked to produce an awareness campaign for the first trials of the technology in Australia.
Ventura, who were pioneering this new green, clean innovation, loved the promotional material so much that they contacted us to produce an exclusive marketing campaign for Ventura Buses.
The Worlds first Hybrid Bus
The working title ‘The Worlds first Hybrid Bus’ was our creative starting point, and although we were going to be recycling the battery image, the overall style of communication or voice, had to be more exciting and prompt the imagination.
On a creative level, the word ‘Hybrid’ conjures up an image of a strange cross breeding experiment. An exciting chimera from a sideshow tent.
“Roll up, roll up…. come and see the Worlds first Hybrid Bus. Wonder at it amazing electric powers. Be the first to ride this fantastic breakthrough in technology and the environment…”
Visually we went with the image of a weathered sideshow advertising poster, using dynamic Victorian poster typography. Creating an A3 poster and internal cabin decal posters to encourage passengers to ride the ‘The Worlds first Hybrid Bus’ and a call to action to come and visit the website to discover more.
We created an online virtual book using a Flash based flip book with great page turning transitions. The book explained how the technology worked in a very visually interesting way. Our recommendation has been to produce a printed version for secondary schools, so watch this space.
