About me
Rame Days is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Melbourne, led by Manchester-born Nathan Day, a graphic designer specialising in Art Direction, Editorial, Typography, Branding, Illustration & Web Design. My approach to design is rooted in a consciousness of appreciating and celebrating the natural world. I tend to take a more hands-on, tactile and image lead direction, and embrace the chaos and beauty of nature to inspire intelligent Graphic Design. Guided by curiosity, my process is driven by curating imagery and content through collaboration. Experimentation, originality and voice take priority with every project. With the need for opinions and ideas to be spread through visual communication more crucial than ever, it is essential that design is present to push through exciting, beautiful and powerful messages. Currently working with creatives in the fashion, publishing and music industries, I also support and have a keen interest in working with climate-conscious brands, environmental action non-profits and brown/black-owned businesses.

Adopting FM radio-waves as an obvious choice to formulate the visual motifs fo

  • Contemporary Art Society
    Contemporary Art SocietyWhen devising a fluid and malleable design system to help promote the wide array of prominent and pioneering artists discussing their work with the Contemporary Art Society, it was clear that they needed something sharp and minimalist in its design to allow for clear translation of the relevant information to new and existing audiences. When forming first ideas with the team, it was clear that there was a want and need for a little more visual stimulation, especially for the organisation in ques
  • Bean & Gone
    Bean & GoneBean & Gone are a new bespoke candle company creating products from soy beans. A key aim of theirs was to highlight the unique design and reusable aspect to their climate conscious candles. Something that they wanted to implement into this brand experience was a ‘scent symbol’, a uniquely designed motif that could form a design language for each new scent released. To pull all of these different themes together and create a truly unique aesthetic language for the company, the forms and scent sy
  • Noise Latin
