Good design is the difference between being noticed or being invisible, being remembered or being forgotten. Good design talks to your audience about you, not about itself…

Factory One knows good design.

Inspiration plus
perspiration

Good design is part science, part creativity, part expertise and part genius. If one part is missing, the rest just doesn’t add up.

The design you choose will say many things about your product, brand or service before you’ve said a word. It’s your front row messenger, symbolising your unique identity and position in the market. It’s the first thing your audience will see and often the last thing they remember.

As if that wasn’t enough, your brand image also has to work across an ever-increasing world of media, from mobile phones to billboards, television to print, internet intimacy to experiential and promotional environments.

Factory One understands and relishes these design challenges. We take every opportunity to use your design in unique and surprising ways. Expressing the very essence of your organisation, brand or service in a meaningful and memorable way is our passion.

The Factory One
process

Understanding the graphic design process is vital to ensure clients get the maximum benefit from the process, as well as gain valuable information to better manage their own projects.

A good graphic design process is structured around gaining the highest quality solution and service appropriate to the client’s business, marketing or communication problem. For clients to ensure their investment in design, as well as in print, is maximised, the design process should be followed as well as making sure the input, the design and artwork is right.

Solutions cultivated
from experience


Established in 2002, Factory One is the brain child of husband and wife team Cathy Schneider and Justin Weaver. Both graduates in graphic design, Factory One started life as a humble two-person design studio.

From the outset Cathy took the creative reigns. She assembled a team of design specialists to fulfil her creative vision. Under her guidance Factory One’s design studio produce thoughtful, memorable design solutions for all applications.

Justin, frustrated with the constraints of outsourcing print projects, decided on purchasing a large format printer. With the ability to offer their clients a full service package, the business grew and so too did the acquisitions.

Today, Factory One boasts a facility with over 500sqm of state-of-the-art technology, offering high-end design services with the ability to produce a large range of print solutions inhouse.

Applying inspiration plus perspiration Justin and Cathy have built Factory One into a boutique agency that knows how to combine creative design and expert print processes. Rarer than you think.

The Factory One
difference

Design that delivers.
Print, process and practicality. It’s all here.

Factory One is a design studio with its own print facility on site and on tap. Design and print become a seamless process – no disconnect, no disappointments.

Our expansive warehouse boasts sustainable, state-of-the-art machinery and specialist staff to oversee each part of the process. Working alongside the design team ensures print obstacles are ironed out along the way, rather than emerging at the last minute.

From concept to completion, design potential is realised by pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in print. Great ideas become great products: cohesive, relevant, usable and memorable.

Clients come to Factory One because they want creativity combined with print practicality. That’s what makes us different.

Some pretty big names come to Factory One. The great thing is, when they’re happy they tell us so we can tell you.

Here’s what a few of them have to say…


“Thank you so much for the amazing branding concepts you created for the new Royal North Shore Hospital. We’re delighted with Factory One’s individual creative approach and the way you’ve captured the essence of our exciting, innovative project.

The first stage of design work was very complex with many elements applied to a range of materials in an evolving environment. No matter what we’ve thrown at you, we get outstanding creative. The quality of the design, fast turnaround (in response to our impossible deadlines) and unfailing patience has been greatly appreciated.”

– Lilly Dolenec, NSW Health
