1800 Hofstede


Galbally & O’Bryan are one of Victoria’s leading law firms. Established in 1935, they have a reputation for providing ethical, high quality legal services to a broad range of clients.

Working with an established identity, we were engaged to redesign the firm’s website, updating the look and feel and functionality. We worked closely with copywriters Big Words and photographer Matthew Stanton to update the site’s content in a highly collaborative process. The typography and colour system is discreet and subdued, evoking a sense of refinement and distinction.
