We’ve recently been working with Rickard Vikström on his new venture THETRAY.SHOP, writing and editing web copy, blogs and finessing graphic design elements.

The first collection from THETRAY.SHOP will be on show at The Big Design Market in Sydney 25-27 November.

Working with his family, as well as several Swedish businesses and designers, Rickard is bringing bespoke, hand-made Scandinavian trays to Australia, all the way from The Artic Circle.


As part of the Sydney Rides Festival, Canvas Bar is showing an exhibition of amateur photography by some of Sydney’s cyclists : 04 –23 October. (more…)

Astrid has an international name in photography and brings her aesthetic as a graphic designer to GkJE.

Living in The Netherelands, Astrid’s a multi-faceted collaborator, working as a producer of Dutch photography exhibitions, and organising shows in New York, Amsterdam, Leiden and Tokyo.

She’s established successful collaborations with Photoville New York, Fotofestival Naarden, Dupho and International Photo Festival Leiden.

Geoff and Astrid met through 2016’s Head On Photo Festival in Australia, when he curated her show Urbanite, on exhibition at GkJE 1. In her photographic work, Astrid stages scenes that verge on the surreal, and her design work is strongly influenced by her sense of space and place.

Photographically, she positions individuals and objects where they don’t seem to belong, moving the familiar into an unfamiliar landscape, her photographs seem to recontextualise normality.

Her photographic work was been purchased by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and was published by Aesthetica Magazine (UK), New Dawn (NL), Metro New York, De Fotograaf (NL), Artworks Amsterdam, Art Takes Miami, Fonk Magazine (NL), featured by LensCulture and Internationale Kunst Heute 2016 (DE) – English Translation.

An accomplished journalist and editor, Lisa brings vast publishing experience to GkJE.

She’s interviewed countless personalities, written numerous profiles and helped to launch a number of upmarket magazines in Sydney and London, and always aims to get to the heart of a story.

Over the past 25 years Lisa’s covered everything from fashion, sustainable building practices, social media, child care and oyster farming to oncology, cosmetic medicine, luxury spas and travel hotspots.

Accustomed to working with small and professional teams, Lisa specifically brings extensive experience in custom publishing to GkJE.

That experience includes editing a diverse mix of titles, including Symmetry (Subaru) FeelBetter (Medibank Private), The Private Practice Magazine(Fintuition), Welcome Home (HSBC), Source (Qantas), Changing Lives (TAFE Western) and TAILORMADE (Tailored Construction Group).

Lisa continues to contribute to a wide range of print and online publications and – by her own admission – works best under pressure and to tight deadlines. We love that!

Head On Extended is an exhibition of work by 10 photographers courtesy of the Head On Photo Festival.

All three GkJE Galleries will showcase work in the same CBD location at Sydney’s Canvas Bar for the first time:

Rickard was a GkJE client before joining our enterprise. It has been his values and beliefs that see him fit so well into our endeavours:

“I grew up in northern Sweden and worked with my parents in our family business. My approach to life, and subsequently business, is based on three core beliefs I learned from them, and always carry with me:

1. Treat everyone with respect – this is the foundation for mutual respect and success.
2. Take the initiative – if you want something to happen, then make it happen.
3. Solve problems – the problems of any business are yours to solve.”

– Rickard
