Anvil Design Studio

Anvil is a studio and gallery based in Canberra, Australia. We are centrally located at The Hamlet in Braddon, the heart of Canberra’s cultural renaissance. We host exhibitions, workshops and social events which bring people together through a shared love of visual arts & design.  Anvil is generally open Thursday to Sunday, with late hours for exhibition openings & special events.

Our previous exhibitions have showcased a mix of street art, graphic design, illustrations, typography, furniture design, product design and a number of publication launches (books and zines). We have developed strong ties with Canberra’s design community, having hosted multiple exhibitions and events for the University of Canberra Faculty of Arts and Design, The Design Kids and Design Canberra Festival.

Anvil was a sponsor of the the 2016 University of Canberra graphic design graduate showcase. We have coordinated live art for Canberra’s Cream music and festival and we are an event partner of Show & Tell, Canberra’s premier contemporary design market.

As creative director, I oversee the production of all exhibitions, events and collaborations. I am also responsible for design of the Anvil’s website ( and overall identity. The studio opened in June 2016 and has subsequently helped to reshape Braddon’s cultural landscape.
