Made to fit.

At Make•Do Studio we design, solve and make. Valuing honesty in communication, materials and execution. Independence of thought and influence. Exploration of ideas and constructive collaboration with the customer and fellow creatives to achieve the most appropriate result.

We’re a multi-disciplined design studio and workshop, based in the Adelaide Hills, that operates in the domains of graphic design, product design and making. Our desire is to create objects and materials that are creatively focused, true to the brief and considerate to the environment.

This includes satisfying commissions in areas such as:

  • Logos & Brand Development
  • Marketing Collateral – such as a brochure, flyer or poster
  • Bespoke hand-made furniture
  • Upcycled Objects
  • Illustration & Digital Art
  • Websites

The inspiration for the name comes from the call to action used during World War II ‘Make do and mend’ brought about by necessity and dark times. However, it gave people a sense of purpose and self-assurance that enabled them to survive and even thrive during that bleak period.

Our version of make do though is not about scraping by through harsh necessity, it’s about making a better life through creativity, effort and persistence. We make, do and nurture, make, do and connect, make, do and enjoy. Make, do and thrive.

If you’re looking for a logo that fits what you or your business stands for. Marketing materials that fit a brand strategy. A bespoke hand-made item of furniture that fits an awkward space, or specific aesthetic. Or wanting to upcycle a tired, old object which fits with the desire for less waste and more mindful consumption. Make•Do is the right fit and we’d love to hear from you.
