The very best of South Australian design: Graphic and industrial

The Design institute of Australia has awarded these four South Australian projects for their work in growing Australia’s reputation as a design-thinking nation.

Australia’s peak industry body for professional design, the Design Institute of Australia represents Australian design and designers both domestically and internationally.

These projects, awarded in the DIA’s 2018 awards ceremony, are the very best in graphic and industrial design from the last 12 months.


PROHAB Connected Healthcare Device
Sandy Walker & Flinders University

The judges thought that this design was extremely successful in addressing problems in rehabilitating patients and progressing the rehabilitation industry.

The thorough resolution and exploiting of the properties of the Titanium primary component was beautifully designed, considered, and machined. The tech package, power capacity, low waste, and its ability to expand to other devices was highly commendable.


Prohibition Gin
Toolbox Graphic Design

A thoughtful and intelligent design that fits seamlessly within the existing range of Prohibition Gins, while clearly positioning the product as something special.




Hahndorf Hill

A unique and distinct example of branding creatively applied to a wide range of wines.

The attention to detail of the production coupled with the confidence to do something different (while completely opposite) allows this commercial scale winery to convey a sense of personality and soul.



Malt & Juniper
-Arc Studio

The designer has demonstrated the power of simplicity and elegance in planning, materiality and detailing, providing the comfort and presence consistent with the developing character of Peel Street.
