One Month In and a Ginger Nut Addiction

It’s been one month since joining the BC crew and it is safe to say I can shake off any shyness or apprehension I first brought with me coming into a studio environment. The time has flown by but has also felt so substantial. I have slotted nicely into the fast-paced work dynamic and have formed great relationships with everyone here. It’s such a positive and nurturing place that is helping me develop  as a designer. It’s such a privilege to able to pick the brains of people with so much experience in the industry!



Swinburne Industry Placement

Hi, I’m Jas and I’ve joined Bonney Creative as an Industry Placement student as part of the Swinburne’s Bachelor of Design (Honours). I’m super excited for this opportunity where I can learn and grow in a studio environment and work on real world briefs. I can’t wait to get stuck in to packaging projects and the strategic thinking behind them.


Bonney Creative - This Is Not a Bribe Student Note

Inspiring Young Designers

Over the weekend I was clearing out some stuff from one of those household cupboards that was filled with ‘I don’t know what to do with you’ archival boxes. I came across a little envelope from 2011 and inside was a carefully designed bespoke sleeve with a fake $100 bank note inside. The title read ‘This is not a bribe’ and was followed by this statement:

“Dear Amber, just a note to say thank you so much for a wonderful semester. I truly enjoyed your classes and I have been very encouraged by the genuine dedication and patience that you have shown towards our class. You truly have been a great inspiration, and I hope that you never grow weary in the work that you continue to do. Thank you.”

Swinburne Advanced Packaging – Mentor Programme

This semester Bonney Creative took part in a mentoring program in partnership with Swinburne University of Technology. The Advanced Packaging Unit aimed to give students with a talent and interest in packaging design, live interactive feedback and tuition during key milestones of the semester unit.

Both Damian Kelly and Amber Bonney took part in the program and we had the tough decision of awarding 1 outstanding student with a 6 month Mentoring Program. A very big congratulations to Alex Reid for his submission and selection for this program. Alex showed great initiative throughout the process with a particular skill that demonstrated his aptitude for conceptual thinking, illustration and brand design.
