Mimi-Myrtle +Co. is a Melbourne-based creative collective, who combine their designer-flower-powers to create ‘A Collective Adventures of the Senses’.

 

We are a graphic designer and florist duo, driven by conceptually beautiful design, gorgeously sensory botanicals and all things truly unique. From custom-made florals for events, weddings and festivals through to thought-provoking brand identities, publications and websites. We also join forces to create atmospheres for spaces; styling a table, or a wall, for a bespoke event – big or small…imagination encircles our world.

 

 

 

WE BELIEVE WE HAVE THE INGREDIENTS TO BRING A LITTLE SUNSHINE, COLOUR, ADVENTURE AND IMAGINATION TO THE TABLE FOR EACH & EVERY PROJECT.

ABOUT US

MIRIAM MCWILLIAM = MIMI

Miriam was born in the quaint ocean-side town of Lorne, where she was often seen collecting shiny ‘blings’ and creating colourful ‘things’ and always co-ordinating many an exciting adventure to embark upon with her friends…

Moving forward a few years, it was inevitably these three things – collecting, creating and adventuring – which led her to embark on a career as a graphic designer. The combination of solid research; the collection of ideas, the development and creation of those findings, and leading the co-ordination of each individual project; on it’s own adventurous journey. For the past decade she has enjoyed working both locally and abroad, for an extensive base of clients, in a wide range of sectors; not-for-profit, arts, cultural and community organisations, hospitality and tourism, property, museums, government, and a wide cross-section of small-medium start-ups. 

Her areas of specialty are brand identity, design for print, websites, short videos, exhibition and environmental design. Miriam also has experience in styling and creative direction – intuitively creating imaginative and informed landscapes for photo shoots and videos, exhibitions and other creative events and spaces. She has taught students, Digital Media, Typography and Design for Print at Edinburgh Napier University (UK, 2007-09) and has curated a number of group exhibitions, also exhibiting her own photography, sculpture and illustration both locally and abroad. She is the design director and co-founder of the not-for-profit organisation Band4Hope – which involved establishing and launching the brand from the ground up.

Although born from separate mothers, when they first met back in high school, Miriam and Megan were more-often-than-not mistaken as twins. They now find themselves, as twins always do – drawn together as a creative duo – and with their super-powers combined many magical things tend to happen.

MEGAN SCHMIDTKE = MYRTLE

Megan started living her flower dream over 10 years ago as a bright, budding apprentice who’s intense love for flowers and foliage would never fade. As a young girl, apart from ice-creams, holidays and lounge room dance concerts, her favourite thing was visiting the local florist and making tiny posies in the garden. Specialising in weddings and events, she has travelled far and wide to wineries, destination beaches, quaint country properties and across international waters to help turn floral dreams into realities.

Making posies and garlands by day, teaching the odd flower class by night, she’s developed and taught flower courses at North Melbourne Community Centre and at The Gordon Institute. She has worked for reputable florists in Melbourne and Geelong and in that time has worked on large scale weddings and events, racing carnivals, festivals as well as intimate eclectic soirées.

She currently works in the flower industry and for Meredith Music Festival as a department manager where her love of logistics, management, musical fun times and camping collide.

It was from the balcony of her Rome hotel and Miriam’s Fitzroy home that the decision was made to apply for a small Yarraville studio. A space where they could create beautiful work together and collaborate with other creative folk. Here flowers and design would become very good friends.

Mimi-Myrtle is a new adventure with like-minded, design extraordinaire and best friend Miriam, who together want to bring a little sunshine and sparkle to the tables of many.

DESIGN

 

Realising the value of your brand’s identity IN this big wide world of ours, is the most essential step you will take towards the success of any business, project or event. 

 

The way you communicate what-you-are-all-about to your audience is invaluable. Telling the right story is what makes it really count. Whether you are simply after a logo and a visual language to differentiate your business from the crowd; a blog, website or video that really speaks out in the digital world; or a beautifully tactile piece of print to hold in your hand, or view on the wall. We can do all this + more! Take a look at some selected projects below and please do get in touch to discuss your next project.
