Freakdesign has worked with some pretty cool clients (some noted below) - all different sizes and sectors. From Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne through to worldwide, there's few places our work hasn't been. Even the work has been varied with Shopify designs, EDMs, Branding, Illustration and everything in-between. Nice to have variety!
