ABOUT

INKSEED IS A SUSTAINABLE GRAPHIC DESIGN AND PRINT SERVICE BASED ACROSS PERTH AND THE SOUTH WEST, WA

Inkseed is an alternative design and print service that has creative passion and environmental responsibility at it’s core, and we want to create epic visual material for you.

Inkseed is not like your typical design agency or print house. We enjoy good design, good deeds, and good beer.
We were the odd, quiet kid who could draw good in school. We don’t fit in – we stand out. We revel in eccentricity and individuality, and believe we can help you be the best “you” you can be. 

We believe in making a difference, and we believe in doing things the right way.

WHAT MAKES OUR GRAPHIC DESIGN DIFFERENT?

We are devoted to what we create, and we want to make sure we capture every essence of you and your identity effectively and collaboratively in the designs we produce for you. 

Using our Creative Briefing process, we make it easy to define what you want to achieve with your design material, and we assist in establishing direction and strength in your visual identity.

We ensure you are involved in every step along the way, and utilise our expertise and attention to detail to create designs that not only replicate your vision, but showcase you in the most accurate, eye-catching and fabulous way possible. 

WHAT MAKES OUR PRINT ECO-FRIENDLY?

We classify a printed product as being eco-friendly when it meets our four strict eco standards.

Inkseed only uses 100% recycled paper stocks for our core range printing, and FSC certified stock for our specialty items. We promote the use of petroleum-free inks, and wherever we can go paper-free, we will.

In the case that a printed product cannot be made any more efficiently, it is ensured Carbon Offsets are in place during their production to compensate. We strive hard to ensure that all of our products, services, suppliers and distributors comply with recognised industry and environmental standards.

Inkseed encourages customers to support green by switching to eco-friendly print, so that over time the increased demand will be able to sustain a reduced cost of producing it. That way everybody wins – you, our environment, and our future.

IT IS MADE FROM RECYCLED OR SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

IT IS MADE WITH A LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT

IT CAN BE RECYCLED OR BIODEGRADE SAFELY AT THE END OF IT'S USE

IT IS PRODUCED WITH AS LITTLE BY-WASTE AS POSSIBLE

A MESSAGE FROM ME

JODY SCATTINI • Owner | Graphic Designer

Hello! Thank you for visiting Inkseed.
I have spent majority of my adult life immersed in the creative industry. Graphic design and print became my forte upon graduating from Curtin in 2004 in the charming regional town of Kalgoorlie. After growing in my career across a number of valuable industry roles, I created Inkseed in 2010 in my modest little bedroom office whilst sharehousing in Perth. 

Inkseed began as a freelance venture, aimed at providing a big, bold, unrestrained graphic design service that promoted artistic freedom and transparency between designer and client. I wanted to produce design that created connections; that were honest, genuine, captivating and real. Built with solid foundations of care and purpose. 

Good design is timeless, priceless, and has the ability to evoke responsive feeling in you and your audience – without directly telling you to do so.

I made it my mission early on to develop Inkseed into a fused level of entity that not only maintained my original creative values, but also helped to eradicate the critical environmental issues involved in the printing and paper industries.

People need accessibility to sustainable options in every facet of their life – including design and print – now more than ever before.

With Inkseed I address not only what the papers and inks are made of that are used in our printing, but the purpose of the printed items, realistic unit quantities, the carbon footprint of the print & production equipment used, as well as collective print and delivery runs to minimise impact. 

Due to the high demand for cheap accessible print, along with dated technologies and practices that continue to be used in majority of printing businesses, the waste resultingly produced by paper and print today sits at a devastatingly damaging global level – and hasn’t really changed much at all over the history of the industry. 

It’s “the way it’s been done for years” attitude that I declined to accept a long time ago. Change is here. It is our only way forward.

It brings me revered and dutiful happiness to bring Inkseed to you.
