A 'lil bit of info
about this 'lil creative studio

YAKYAK Design is based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

YAK YAK is small and focused.  Branding and Identity design is what lights the creative fires around here but YAK YAK does all the other things that keep brands burning too.

What are those things? Print (tick), web (tick), digital (tickety-tick) as well as Art Direction and strategy required to create and maintain brands. There is a lot of time spent on screens, too much coffee and not enough water…

Frequently Asked…

Ok, you’re about to make my creative dreams come true, what should I expect?    

Open and responsive communication from project commencement to completion. Given.

We have pretty straight forward processes that always begin with a chat and a brief. We listen, we get the feels, and then we do the work.

On a practical level you should expect that work is delivered on time and to specs. You should expect more than just a file titled logo.jpg, when we are finished with you. We give you a brand bundle with all the files and direction you need. We tell you how to use it, and how you might accidentally abuse it – don’t do that. We can adjust and revise and suggest. We can brand.


What do you need from me?

We need you to be open and honest with your communication. We need polite and constructive feedback.

We may need access to some of your stuff (not piggy banks or emails accounts) but current and sometimes old collateral, social platforms, web and digital etc.

Why do you need a deposit?

There is a lot of work that goes on before you see our work.

This takes time. We are serious about our projects and want our clients to be the same. Things change (living in a pandemic much?) but a deposit is our way of ensuring no-ones time and efforts are wasted.


Sooooo what’s with the name YAKYAK?

Well, to be honest it sticks in ones mind doesn’t it? Our job is to communicate (mostly visually) but it all starts with a chat, a talk, a good yarn, a yak if you like… yak, yak, yak… it’s the basis of communication.
