The power of good design is, quite simply, amazing. Carefully creating a successful solution is never easy, and it requires someone who understands the development process intimately. Regardless of your preferred style—be it minimalist, maximized white space, wild splashes of colour, experimental typography, photographic, illustrative, or simply clean, crisp, corporate imagery—Fabmedia Studios will partner with you and craft a unique visual solution that delivers a positive message to your market and sets you apart from your competition.

WHAT WE DO

BRENTWOOD STATION

WHO WE ARE

  • DASH
      DASHchief barking officer & pretty boy

      Dashiell-Cadoo loves to play and lets any squeaky toys know who’s the boss. Dash can be found lounging on his favourite chair, taking quick naps, or rolling around on the sofa whenever he’s not trying to negotiate new treat deals with everyone he meets. Dash has a strict napping schedule and can be usually found snoozing on his pillow. Besides being truly indoxicating upon first sight, he is one kosher hot dog.

    • ARLEN
      ARLENcreative director & artmonkey

      An award winning freelance designer, illustrator, and consultant since 1996, Arlen works within the areas of print, interactive, and motion media design.  His skill set includes an easy going nature, banana peeling, and producing functional designs that allow him to slip into any position as necessary to achieve the goals of the client and the project at hand. More recently, Arlen has gained focus on writing and illustrating childrens books and graphic novels.

    • KITA

Whether it’s a pat on the head, managing snuggle time, or making sure all bananas are shared, Kita makes sure your project is done to the utmost quality and completed on time. She is the Master Controller. When you need colour accuracy, proper checking of grammar while having a  spare banana lying around, this is the dachshund you want on your team.
