Who We Are

Mary Hooper & Amy Stroup

We’re an independent creative studio adept in identity and brand development, print design, illustration, and a few other miscellanies we’ve given our creative minds to. Helping the world recognize the unique vision behind each of our clients’ brands keeps us loving what we do. It’s about making your vision look even better with beautiful, well-crafted design.

Milkglass Creative was founded by one musically inclined graphic designer and a creative thinking singer-songwriter in March of 2010. With almost 10 years of corporate experience and music industry know-how behind us, we’ve managed to move forward in our dream of producing good art in community and passionately serving our clients with what we believe to be our strongest asset – our creativity.

The inspiration that began as a conversation in Frenchman’s Cove outside of Brisbane, Australia has become the manifesto we’ve committed to maintaining every day at our Berry Hill studio. We believe that sound design is for everyone – hence our company name…

STORY BEHIND THE NAME

What is milkglass anyway?
We've always liked the look and name of this vintage glass but it was in doing some research on it’s role in history that we were sold on adopting it for our own. Milkglass was popular in Europe at the turn of the century. During the dark days of the Great Depression a more inexpensive form of the glass was manufactured and distributed in common household products as a morale boost. We liked the idea of fine art made for the common man -- beauty that encourages and adds to life.
