Through our brands The Distillery, Rockstar Memoirs and Affinity, we specialise in

  • commercial branding and design

  • publications, magazines and custom jewellery for dynamic groups.
We celebrate Authenticity

Through design and creative strategy, The Distillery craft customised products, services and solutions which stand for authenticity and connection.

While the world simplifies through technology, we believe that some of the most meaningful forms of creativity often live outside a digital screen. Our clients trust us to connect through deeper thought and meaning.

We live Creative Culture

The life of a creative professional is dynamic, fast-paced and and human-centred. With a focus on the future, our teams collaborate continuously, working from the same page to strategise, explore and craft unique projects.

Based in Crown Street, Darlinghurst, The Distillery’s studio is a flurry of creative activity, with our multipurpose space featuring design and letterpress foil printing facilities, a craft manufacturing workshop, and large-scale event space. Please drop by and say hello when you’re next around!


The Creative Graduate Program

Developed for recent graduates and final-year students, The Creative Graduate Program is designed to help nurture the creative leaders of tomorrow.

Featuring a variety and depth of structured learning, this rotational program offers unique learning opportunities across a range of different teams, commercial industries and creative services. With focussed training and support, fundamental stepping-stones are developed to power long-term success in your career.

The program’s first core rotation is placement as a Junior Project Manager, with optional publication design responsibilities. With strategic development and pacing, selection of future program rotations may include a combination of:

  • Graphic Design and Branding
  • Marketing and Event Management
  • Creative and Business Strategy
  • Entrepreneurship and Business Development
  • Craft Production

The Distillery proudly run this program as a means to recruit and train dynamic creative professionals. Entry to the program is on an ongoing employment basis, and many of our leaders today originally started out as graduates.
