Australian Association for Unmanned Systems


Branding, Trophy Design,


The Australian Association for Unmanned Systems (AAUS), is Australia’s largest industry advocacy group for unmanned systems across land, sea and air. AAUS are a not for profit organisation and aim to promote a professional, safe and commercially viable industry. The brief was to create a fresh and vibrant new brand and I used the land, sky and sea colours as a guide, with an abstract representation of a rotor shape forming the Australian shape.

My story

With over 16 years in the design industry, 10 specializing in aviation, Duncan has experience in almost any design project you could need. Whether it be a branding for a business, annual reports, books, brochures, promotional products or websites, Duncan enjoys creating something unique and meaningful.

He has worked with a wide range of clients and understands engaging with stakeholders and in managing all elements of projects, from quotations and planning through to working with print or production companies.

Born a South African and raised as an Australian meant growing with a love of wild landscapes and animals that can eat you. Mountain biking, photography and building tree houses/weapons with his sons are some of his other outlets.

Working from South Australia’s beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula, Duncan loves to be inspired by the creativity and colour found in nature every day.
