For over 25 years DV8 Creative has been seeing things a bit differently. Working with like-minded people, creative in their own fields, we provide a personal and unique design service.

Designer Stephen Canning approaches graphic design, branding, web and digital projects with a unique, highly collaborative, customer-focused approach.

Collaboration produces the best quality work – working with people who excel in their fields and work on equal terms, who seek to challenge and be challenged.

The primary collaboration is of course with the client, and by starting with the common goal of strong open communication in this relationship we achieve a high degree of success in bringing their ideas and products to the world.

Design Thinking is a proven toolset to help drive design teams toward decisions based on the experience of the customer. It focuses on their needs and objectives. Working in this process brings fresh insights, often challenging original expectations. So you can expect the unexpected.

Genesis Energy
Genesis Energy required a series of panels for the entrance foyer, which function as an educational aid for the various tours of the plant, while remaining visually engaging for the casual visitor and consistent with the clean industrial aesthetic of the interior.
DV8 Creative proposed these large printed acrylic panels (the largest being 3.5m long) and created the technical illustrations to be approachable by all audiences from primary school students to engineers. 
The onsite engineers are justifiably very particular about the detail and visual representation of aspects of the plant they are responsible for, so the process required a lot of engagement at different levels to get the simplicity, clarity and accuracy required.
Client: Genesis Energy
Concept, illustration and production: Stephen Canning
