Michelle Lanigan Real Estate20/08/2010
The new signboard for Michelle Lanigan Real Estate is now up!
When we were asked to design a signboard, we looked at the original branding and were uninspired, feeling there was no value in building on a brand that didn’t encapsulate what Michelle was about. The rest of Boronia was also uninspired as the old signboard would be regularly defaced and drawn on!
Andy created a fresh new logo and colour palette that was bright and friendly. Friendly fonts and curved lines indicate that commercial real estate shouldn’t be the cold, grey industry that it’s sometimes portrayed to be! Sometimes it’s just the little things that make all the difference!ReadMore
Hollywood voted Orange!18/08/2010
Throughout August’s hazy summer nights, the Alamo Drafthouse and Levi’s® will be taking the Rolling Roadshow to the people under the unified banner of ‘We Are All Workers.’
Rooted by one of the nation’s founding principles, We Are All Workers hits the road with nine seminal screenings proving that everybody’s work is equally important. True to form, each screening will be in the location where the film was shot or set.
Inspired by the spirit of the American worker, the Alamo Drafthouse and Levi’s® have curated an eclectic line up that ranges from the the birth of the oil nation in Paul Thomas Anderson’s THERE WILL BE BLOOD to the futuristic corporate nightmare of Paul Verhoven’s ROBOCOP. Championship contenders are crowned and humbled as Sylvester Stallone embarks on an an epic ROCKY-THON on the Liberty Steps, while Marlon Brando is washed-up ON THE WATERFRONT of the New Jersey docks. Law breakers are saluted as DIRTY HARRY takes to San Francisco’s Washington Square Park, Quentin Tarantino with JACKIE BROWN (schedule permitting), and Chicago’s finest, THE BLUES BROTHERS tear their musical mission from God across the country. Closing out the Roadshow is the the defining immigrant worker story of THE GODFATHER: PART II which will screen from the rooftops and chimney stacks of New York’s Little Italy.
And this is a new poster for The American. George Clooney stars in the title role of this suspense thriller, filmed on location in Italy.ReadMore
Turner Publications website17/08/2010
Hi All! Just thought we’d let you know that we’ve launched yet another website: Turner Publications!
We began by creating a brand for Paul Turner, a holistic osteopath based in Eastern Victoria, a man who’s very passionate about holistic healing and natural therapy. Paul has spent a lot of time developing 3 informative guides to holistic healing with which he’s in talks with publishers. (You can buy his books direct from the Turner Publications website where he offers discounts for buying direct.)
Paul Turner’s site aims to be a small hub for holistic healing. The website is built ground-up in wordpress, by our very talented John and features an easy to update blog, and downloadable book chapters. The shopping cart takes you to a secure external website which is skinned to look like the original website! Although in its infancy, the website leaves room for future growth!ReadMore

FIRE YOUR WEBSITE!!!06/08/2010
Should you Fire your Website?
So you employed a sales person who just isn’t bringing in the deals you were expecting, maybe they don’t always arrive on time or their appearance just seemed a little….. er… downbeat…. you would have something to tell them, wouldn’t you?
Maybe they are hard to find, even when you looked in all the usual places. Going to their home address, you discover that what they had to say was just a bit dull or even worse, there was a coming soon sign in the window…… well you would fire them…. wouldn’t you?
Your website is often the first point of contact with clients or customers. It needs to represent the very best aspects of your brand, product or service.
Take an objective, unbiased, good hard look at your website and imagine that it’s a person, an employee.
So how did that go? what would you say about your choice of representative? See any similarities to the person in this introduction?
Perhaps you chose your web designer based on price not experience. You wouldn’t hire a top sales person without first looking at their CV and results with other businesses…. would you?
It’s always a good idea to take time to look over a designers previous work and ask many questions about each project. At Fuel Studio, we offer a free 45min consultation to make sure that both parties are equally happy to have a long term working relationship.
Just like a great employee, your website is a long term commitment that needs to change and grow with your business, so you need to find a creative partner that understands your business almost as much as you do.
“We’re a bit like a great recruitment agency who go out of their way to find you that perfect key member of staff and then continue to train them so you get the very best from them” – Andy Warrington – Creative Director
A well designed and constructed website, works harder and longer than any staff member, at a fraction of the annual cost. Your initial investment needs to be adjusted, directed, updated and developed regularly to get the most back for it, Just like any good sales team.
So…. are you ready to fire your website?ReadMore

FIA Sports Management02/08/2010
The new FIA Sports Management site has been launched! FIA are a global football talent management team that look after many famous and up and coming footballers from Australia and around the globe. With the likes of Carlos Hernandez and Melissa Barbieri in their ranks, they’ve sure proven their management skills.
They approached Avalanche to design a site that was clean, corporate and user friendly. To explain the wealth of services that they offer, we created five different sections to break down the information into bite sized information. Also included is a nifty little Player Profile wheel, which spins around to the player you’ve selected, then displaying all their credentials. Also includes easily updatable news section and links to youtube videos.
If you’re looking for someone to nurture your young one into super stardom, FIA Sports Management are the team for you ;p
