You may be aware that, last year Queensland’s Deaf Services and the Deaf Society of NSW merged to become one stronger, more impactful organisation.  

This new entity will be rebranded. 

Brisbane based, Brother & Co has been appointed as the agency to develop the new brand including: name, logo, identity and brand portfolio strategy. 

As part of the creative development process Brother is seeking to supplement their brand specialist team with creative minds from the Deaf community. 


We are looking for two people from the Deaf community - a graphic designer and Auslan Language Consultant. 


Exact dates to be confirmed but likely to be two to four weeks.


Remote working and some physical time in Brisbane will be required (subject to COVID). 


We believe the work created will be better if the team working on the project possess lived experience. 




The successful designer will have experience in designing logos and identities to a high standard. Conceptual design thinking is a fundamental requirement. 

Auslan Language Consultant 

An ability to ensure that Auslan and English are both considered throughout the rebrand process. This role will ensure that Auslan usage is technically correct and clear, as well as creatively applied. Candidates that are fluent in Auslan, and have experience with Auslan-English translation are preferred.  


These are freelance / project roles and remuneration will be negotiated accordingly. It is important to note that IP will be assigned to Brother & Co and ultimately Deaf Services Queensland in line with our contractual obligations. 

Team and Supervision 

The Brand Designer and Writer will report to and be supervised by Brother & CO ECD Piet Human. They will work alongside the broader Brother brand team including Kurt Viertel - Managing Director, Melanie Rogers - Strategist and Jacob Lancaster - Senior Designer.
