WordPress, graphic design, illustration
Sunshine Design (AKA Advert ideas), provides quality graphic design for the Sunshine Coast and beyond. The business is nimble with total staff of one – me – Stu! Low overheads mean great quality at great value. I cover branding and logo design, WordPress websites, social media and print advice. I have a BA in Design, Award School and 21 years experience in some of the top agencies in Australia. If you’re not a local business, don’t worry. My office is up to date with the latest technology for easy online communication with remote clients. I use NBN, screen sharing and Dropbox, so distance is no problem. In fact most of my clients have never met me in the flesh. I love talking about design, so for a chat about the latest advertising and design solutions call me, Stu Flynn on 0414505393
Graphic design background
Over the last 21 years I’ve worked in Adelaide, Sydney and now the Sunshine Coast. For 8 of those years I was brand manager and senior graphic designer at BMF – Agency of the decade in Sydney. I learned the Advertising business from some of the top creative directors and art directors in the business. Prior to that I worked as a freelance illustrator and art director in Adelaide, 8 months at TVSN in TV graphics on the Photoshop animation team as well as a stint at New Idea Magazine. Most of all, I’ve found myself in small to medium studio teams.
One of my proudest achievements was developing, promoting and creating my own brainstorming ebook – Extreme nouns. This book has sold hundreds of copies worldwide. I had to promote the ebook myself so it gave me a great chance to immerse myself in google adwords, analytics and social advertising.

I love talking design and love meeting new people, so don’t be shy. Book an appointment to see me at my brand new office space on the lake at Mountain Creek for coffee. For an obligation free chat about your next online or print project phone me – Stu Flynn: 0414505393
As well as being a graphic designer I’m also a business owner. I have multiple web sites, print and digital marketing campaigns in place for my own design business and products that I sell. So I’m constantly learning the latest technology and practices to grow and maintain my own small businesses in an ever changing world.
I take the time required to understand your business. I help you uncover the essence of your product and discuss the best options to grow your market share. A good brief and a detailed company profile goes a long way to help get the process started. Some key questions may go like this. What do you want to achieve through your advertising? What is your competition doing and what makes you unique in the market place?
My end goal is to exceed your expectations, and instead of just giving you what you want, I’ll also deliver what you need. This is done by understanding the big picture stuff. Before diving straight into a logo design or an advertising flyer, I’ll use my experience and training to define your business with a clear brand message and call to action. Without a clear brand and strategy, graphic design is just something that looks nice. If you want more relevance, more profit, more client interest and ultimately a higher market share within your industry take the time to talk to an expert in design and advertising.
Clients and projects
These days I run my own business, splitting my time between high end branding, responsive WordPress web site design and digital illustration work. Many of my clients are Australian and International Marketing and Strategy Companies. Smaller marketing companies tend to outsource specialised skills like graphic design, animation and illustration which is where I come in. In addition to marketing companies, I also enjoy working with smaller local businesses with start up branding, social and WordPress. This is because there is something great about growing ideas from the ground up.
