Rhys Phillips is a Sydney based graphic designer with over eight years of experience and an impressive skill set ranging from animating creepy crawlies to making wax super heroes come to life!
For the last 3.5 years Rhys has been part of a small team of three designers at Merlin Entertainments that look after multiple tourist attractions across Australia and New Zealand, including SEA LIFE Aquarium’s in Sydney, Melbourne, Sunshine Coast and Auckland. During this time Rhys has made a name for himself creating visuals for advertisements that are eye-catching, innovative yet still communicate the core message of the brand. Always pushing the limits of what can be created some of Rhys’s most notable works include, the Ancient Oceans campaign for SEA LIFE which has now been used globally, the Angry Birds partnership Campaign for WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo and SEA LIFE, the launch of the Aquaman wax figure at Madame Tussauds, and the redesign of the Illawarra and Otway Fly brand just to name a few.
When Rhys isn’t hanging out with the sharks, Kangaroos and wax figures he also does some freelance design, specialising in logos and social media assets, an example being the motion graphics created for Combat Ready Fitness where he was able to make static images come to life bringing energy to what was originally a flat photo.
Rhys’ passion for design and his expertise are clearly seen in everything he creates with every job treated with the same level of importance, click below to see why everyone know’s when Rhys designed it.
