about Blackfish Graphic Design


After leaving the Renew office space in Watt Street, Blackfish has temporarily returned to a home studio until a suitable commercial lease can be found in the new year.

“I found the Renew Newcastle experience very rewarding. I saw first hand how the initiative has helped revitalise the CBD. Hunter Street and surrounding areas are alive with enthusiasm and colour. My time spent in the CBD has provided many exciting opportunities. Overall, Renew has been very educational and inspiring. I look forward to moving back into the CBD in early 2014.” Michael Hearne, Blackfish Graphic Design.

Blackfish is a design focussed studio providing a full range of design and branding services, with particular interest working collaboratively with local businesses. Led by principal Michael Hearne, Blackfish works closely with clients to develop innovative and effective creative solutions, helping to build brand profile, awareness and trust in the local business community.
