Geoff and Christine Hocking established the family company images & words p/l just a few years ago after the business, which had begun as a graphic design consultancy, was steering away from the usual round of corporate and marketing design and was concentrating on design for book publishing.
As Geoff became more and more the author of the books being designed, the company needed to reflect this direction.
Geoff has designed scores of books for Australian publishers, illustrated many books for children and has written, designed and produced 28 books, mainly themed on Australian social history.
Images & words also creates design solutions for print-based communication problems such as: advertising material, banners, brochures, corporate stationery, external advertising, packaging, posters, proposals, reports, signage and wine labels.
Geoff has specialised in music packaging with almost 40 years experience in design for the music publishing industry preparing cover art for hundreds of records, tapes and cds.
