OFF THE BEATEN TRACK
We are all wanderers on this earth.
Our hearts are full of wonder,
and our souls are deep with dreams.

redwagon has over 20 years experience in graphic design
in the not-for-profit and corporate, as well as research and government sectors. redwagon was born in Melbourne in 2006, after an eight year career at a private marketing agency based in St Kilda Road, specialising in not-for-profits.
redwagon is driven by Ania Nowakowska, her dog Django,
and a number of associates, including the insanely creative designer and artist Daga Mikolaj, whose genius is unrivalled, and the one and only Zoe Karkas FFIA of Why Not This, guru of strategic planning, creative direction, copy writing, data analysis and segmentation and a gazillion other things often foreign to designers.
Ania was born in Poland and studied Visual Arts
at The University of Melbourne, majoring in Graphic Design & Communication, Art History, and a minor in Photography.
Her digital art has featured in numerous international exhibitions.
Ania has won several national awards from the Fundraising Institute of Australia in her role as art director and graphic designer on projects for not-for-profit organisations. She has also been chosen through competitive selection as logo designer for the international bi-annual Leonard Cohen event since 2000 (Montreal, Hydra, New York, Berlin, Edmonton, Krakow, Madison, and Dublin).
redwagon wheels along to Gypsy music, sunshine, rain, and beach walks with Django, taking pride in our work no matter what its nature, whether working to super tight deadlines, or taking our time creating art for pleasure.

"I have personally been a repeat client of Ania's for the last 20 years, utilising her designs with 2 very different organisations: a disability services charity, and currently health care (Austin Hospital and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre Appeal). Ania has always portrayed a great empathy and creativity in her design work. I have appreciated her ability to think outside the square, yet understand the 'personality' of my organisation(s). Ania certainly understands the delicate balance of providing great creative work, whilst portraying a 'charitable modesty' in terms of the finished product. I certainly have no hesitation in recommending the work of Ania Nowakowska and Redwagon."
Sharon Hillman FFIA, Director of Fundraising, Austin Health / Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre
"Doing great climate science is one thing, communicating the results to effectively inform policymakers is another. Ania just gets whats visually required in spite of the complexity of what we are trying to communicate and the need to be sensitive to our scientists investment in the accurate communication of their work. It may sound clichéd, but she adds value to our organisation - I think of her as a key partner, not a supplier. I love the fact we can debate an idea until we are both happy with the outcome the end result is invariably better than I would have conceived possible."
Tessa Jakszewicz, Former Deputy CEO, Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre, Hydro Tasmania, CEO Landcare Australia
"redwagon design provides an exceptional design service at a very reasonable price. Ania always comes up with creative solutions to design and communication challenges, she may stretch your comfort zone but her creativity wont stretch beyond your brand style guides, budget or brief. She has worked with us on creating new logos for our clients, advertising campaigns, promotional materials and has created a whole new brand for us and implemented this across all our stationary, promotional materials, product information, training programs and website. It takes a very special designer to take a brief, expand the brief in a beautiful direction and do all of this on time and within budget. Thankfully Ania is special! She comes with my high recommendation."
Hailey Cavill, Director, Cavill + Co
"Ania is a delight to work with as a designer and has created many advertisements for our Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre Appeal and Austin Health fundraising messages over the years, in a timely manner, at very competitive prices."
Tanya Carter, Marketing Manager, Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre Appeal
"Ania took the seed of an idea and transformed my vision into a beautiful coffee table book on landscape sculpture. She was sensitive to my vision even though I didnt know how to express or achieve it. She helped us link the balance of photography with copy and typeface. Separate these items were stunning, combined they are inspirational. Ania is invaluable."
