Here at Green Light Creative, we take safety seriously! The team recently underwent training to bring everyone up to speed on the latest in Workplace Health and Safety procedures, and now we’re all pros!
WH&S is mandatory to ensure a safe workplace both physically and mentally, and the GLC team are excited to implement our knowledge within our office and on every site visit, sign installation and job that takes place.
We take extra care to maintain WH&S relationships with all our clients and providers, and keep everything on file to keep every situation safe! A quick recap of our latest addition is the consistent appraisal of each job and its safety risks. We either classify a job as HIGH or LOW risk and apply codes and practices that pertain to each!
We have prepared a full WH&S document that covers all the work we currently manage and encourage you to peruse through it should you wish to see how we commit to safety.
It seems we completely missed posting any updates in 2020... oops!
There are so many reasons why. But the main one is due to us working on a new website in the background... We are back on track now with a beautiful new website!
And we're in a new bigger office!
It was time we got a couch and a drinks fridge, so we moved directly upstairs to Studio 8 Bakery Lane! It is light and airy and wonderful! Please drop by and visit us soon.
Our new address:
Studio 8 Bakery Lane
694 Ann Street

Each year Green Light Creative gives to charities that have affected our staff in some way. We hope that our contributions can help with research and support the people we love, as well as the greater community.
Fiona has donated to the Lung Foundation. This year has been challenging and difficult for one of our extended team members. We hope that by donating to the Lung Foundation, this is just one more way we can help make a difference.
Joanne has donated to Dreams2Live4. A visionary program that realises the dreams of patients living with Metastatic cancer, Dreams2Live4 have granted a wish for Joanne’s own father. She hopes that by donating, she can continue to support others and help create beautiful memories and happy moments in times that matter most.
Karley has donated to Beyond Blue. After a year that has seen staggering rates of anxiety and depression, Beyond Blue are doing the necessary work to provide the information and support needed to help everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health.
Nellie has donated to the Pyjama Foundation. Every child deserves to feel safe and secure, loved and wanted. She hopes that by donating, she can help children in foster care experience meaningful relationships with “Pyjama Angels” and improve their lives with learning, meaningful life skills, and confidence.
Rachel has donated to the Rett Syndrome Association of Australia. Seen almost exclusively in females, Rett syndrome is a genetic disorder in which the brain does not mature in the way it should. Rachel hopes that by donating, she can help enhance the quality of life for people with Rett syndrome and create a better future through research and raising awareness.
Sam has donated to the Animal Welfare League Queensland. In 2019/2020 their shelters cared for over 8,000 homeless animals, reunited 2,052 lost animals with their families and rehomed 5,878 animals providing them a second chance at life – one of which was Sam’s cat Humphrey!
John has donated to Motor Neuron Disease Australia. MND Australia works with a national network of State MND Associations to advocate, educate and raise awareness. Their goal is to empower Australians impacted by MND to live better for longer.
The Green Light Creative team celebrated the end of 2020 with a cooking class at the Golden Pig in Newstead. We swapped our high-vis vests for aprons and got dirty cooking up a Middle Eastern inspired feast. With a set menu of exquisite entrees to start us off, we got to cooking! We learnt new ways to cook up fresh produce, choice cuts of protein, fragrant spices, and lush herbs.
The Green Light Creative Team had the pleasure of attending a Mas & Miek Pottery Workshop for our 2019 Christmas Party. We loved getting a little dirty and using our hands. It was a very enjoyable and zen morning and something we are all keen to try again. This week, we picked up our creations...
Each year Green Light Creative gives to charities that have affected our staff in some way. We hope that our contributions can help with research and support for people (and animals) we love, as well as the greater community.
We had the pleasure working on everything from billboards, banners and baseball t-shirts to shipping containers, sales offices and a sprinkle cloud in 2019!
It is so hard to choose just a few - but here are some highlights from 2019...
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you and we are looking forward to another busy year ahead!
Green Light Creative has competed the Hootsuite Platform Certification!
We are all set up and ready to roll our your next social media campaign.
We LOVE the annual ice-cream festival! It is a chance to come up with some super fun and playful signs.
Thank you to the team at West Village for letting up go crazy and to the team at Liquidity for continually making this event great!
As well as out of the box popsicle directionals, interactive voting walls and over sized ice cream props, this year we also got to make a "sprinkle shower" complete with a cloud. This was so much fun and an exciting challenge.
Great architecture starts with a vision.
Back in 2017, Green Light Creative was tasked with bringing a project at Northshore Hamilton to life. We saw the opportunity to make an information hub into something so much more: a vibrant and inviting space that doesn’t just inform you about the future, it inspires you. The resulting building — The Deck Northshore — has gone well beyond the brief to collect a swathe of architecture awards throughout 2018.
Award Winning Design
In functional terms, the building is a roof that links two connected pods below (housing an amenities block and an information hub). But we delivered so much more: the The Deck's slanted canopy of weathered ironbark boards — made from recycled wharf timbers — frames the river, creates shade and connects Northshore’s past to its future.
The Deck has captured the hearts of Northshore’s visitors and earned the building numerous architectural awards, including:
On time, on budget, inspired
For this project, Green Light Creative were contracted to find a solution for our client (EDQ) who wanted a space to communicate their future vision for the Northshore Hamilton site to the public. The building would need to be temporary (able to be removed or moved as the precinct evolves), to fit with both the river and nearby Eat Street, and be functional — housing both an information centre and an amenities block. The project had a tight budget and the site was challenging, but throughout, Green Light Creative worked tirelessly to keep the projecton budget and moving along on time.
The client was picturing a shipping container fitout to act as an information hub next to the popular Eat Street precinct. We thought outside the box (outside the shipping container, you could say) and took our inspiration from recycled wharf timbers from the site’s history. We brought architect Anna O’Gorman on board, and she conceived a stunning small, modular design that ditched the shipping containers and instead connected the building to its site and surroundings by framing the river in the recycled grey ironbark timbers.
Anna and Green Light Creative then chose Charles Warren Construction for the build, and the old wharf timbers were processed by Kennedy's Timber. To bring the architect’s vision to life, we managed all suppliers and the team worked under challenging site conditions to deliver a breath-taking, award-winning outcome.
The efforts of this team were second to none and choosing this dream team certainly taught us a lot and ensured that an amazing end product was delivered! We were truely fortunate to find such talent to bring onboard for this project.
The Deck is not just an information hub built from the past that informs you about the future, a beautiful place to chill in the shade by the river, and an award-winning architectural triumph.
We wrote a draft post in March.... Proofed the draft in April and then WOW here we are in December.
It has been a massive year with a a few research trips thrown in for good measure! Fiona has been on the road to find inspiration and check out what the rest of the world is doing when it comes to all things signage. Check out our feed at @greenlightcreative_on_the_road We will keep adding to this insta page as we find more inspiration on the road.
While it is hard to choose from all our exciting work - we love variety so our highlights are;
Lend Lease King Street Gobo Projection - using some supplied artwork from Gilimbaa we had the job of turning the work into projectable slides. They were displayed for NAIDOC week along King Street.
Oracle Platinum Homes Printed Brochures - With the launch of a refreshed logo for Oracle Platinum Homes we were excited to help them redesign their product brochure of 102 pages!
Sekisui House West Village Van Wrap - We had the fun job of designing a van wrap for a new moving service by Sekisui House, West village.
Frasers Brookhaven Banner Mesh - We built a new fence and installed over 1.5km of new banner mesh at Brookhaven! EPIC!
West Village Ice Cream Festival - 2018 kicked off with this annual festival. Although a little bit of rain threatened the day, it went off without a hitch! From interactive walls, 3D ice-creams, directional signs, maps, stickers we got to print and install it all!
Satterley Smithfield Estate - Possibly the fastest job in history! We launched a new logo, 12 billboards, display village banners and new sales office signs all in just 2 weeks! It was fast and furious but the result was awesome and a breath of fresh air to this Cairns estate signage which was looking very faded.
Peet Event Signs - We did a range of corflute tent event signs for Peet estates around Brisbane. This style of sign is so good for events as they are super quick to print, easy to install and easy move around! They require very little install and can be used on grass or concrete with no fuss.
High Street Underwriting Agency - Acrylic printed staff award trophies was something very different and they turned out perfectly. We also got to manage the production of a bookshelf with a secret hidden door (not pictured as it is secret).
As Green Light Creative has grown we strive to keep up company traditions. One tradition which makes us smile is our yearly gifting to charities that have affected our staff during the year.
This year we have donated to the following:
We hope that our contributions can help with research and support for people we love, as well as the greater community.
As we do every year we have chosen a few charities that have impacted our year at Green Light Creative.
This year we have chosen the following charities as they have affected our lives in some way.
www.dreams2live4.org.au - Dreams2live4 makes dreams come true for patients who are living with Metastatic cancer meaning any cancer that has spread
www.sherescuehome.org - The SHE Rescue Home is a safe haven for girls under 16 who have been trafficked, prostituted, raped or are at risk.
www.livin.org - LIVIN is all about living your life at the top and breaking the stigma around mental health. Connecting, supporting and encouraging one another to talk about their feelings and challenges because “It Ain’t Weak to Speak”.
We hope that everyone can take time to be thankful for life's gifts and if you can give back to our community in anyway you can.
Green Light Creative wishes everyone love and joy over the festive season and we look forward to seeing you all in 2018.
We are always on the go and thought we should share our adventures with our clients so you can see what we are up to when we are not at our desks.

As part of Open House Brisbane 2017 Green Light Creative were briefed by the team at West Village - Sekisui House to design the signage for the Peters Factory warehouse spaces.
The highlight of the job were the ten informative panels that hung from the rafters in the Peters Cone Factory. The soft banners beautifully contrasted the industrial feel and provided easy to digest information about the factories history. These panels made an interactive experience for the visitors to move though the space and the bonus is; they can be used again as they are so easy to store and simple to install!
Green Light is so proud to have been involved in the Project Management of The Deck Northshore.
Now open to the public it has been humbling to hear feedback about how much people love the beautiful design by Anna O'Gorman. It was a pleasure to work with Anna and builder Charles Warren and his team to bring this to life.
We are also excited that M A C P H E R S O N S T U D I O has kindly shared their beautiful photos with us.
You can read more about what we were involved in a blog post from earlier this year.
