In 1806, Charlotte Badger became Australia’s first female pirate. While being transported to Van Diemens Land aboard the convict ship Venus the captain stepped ashore at Port Dalrymple (George Town, Tasmania). It was then that Charlotte had her Quiet Mutiny and convinced the crew to mutiny and sail to New Zealand.

Winemakers Greer Carland and Paul Smart approached us, inspired by Charlotte’s tale, wanting to tell her story. We worked with them to design an identity and suite of labels that employ bold typography and colonial imagery to give the wines a hint of Charlotte’s personality.

Our work for Quiet Mutiny received an honourable mention in the 2018 Diemen Awards for use of typography. To have a look at our other awards and commendations, click here.
