2014 Round Up: Melbourne’s Spenceroni

Published:  October 30, 2014

Spencer Harrison goes by the name of Spenceroni, a Melbourne-based designer who has begun to make headway in the art and illustration world. With an aesthetic that’s packed with plenty of pastels, his style could be described as playful and simplified, with a touch of painterly refinement. Moving beyond two-dimensional canvases, he has a knack for customising small sculptural objects — particularly, planters. Heading away from traditional client-lead design, Spencer is looking to pursue more self-initiated projects.

Following Band in our 2014 Round Up series, we look at what this year was like for Spenceroni.


“TropOut was a fun project to work on — branding a travel event to Thailand for gay travellers — as the brief was quite open, we could do something a bit more creative with it. It was particularly memorable as we worked hard with the printer to create a 2 colour marbling effect on the print materials with a silver foil on top, which looked amazing in print.”

Rhythm and Repeat
“Rhythm and Repeat has been an ongoing side project this year, creating repeat patterns on a weekly basis and sharing them online. This project was memorable as it allowed me to explore a new creative direction, build a folio of patterns and gain some new clients in this kind of direction. I’ve also been able to explore a range of styles and techniques which helped me to push my work and creativity.”

Unmagic Eye Papercuts
“These hand-cut paper artworks were created from the awesome Colorplan paper range (distributed in Australia by BJ Ball) for a small exhibition I was part of earlier in the year. It was great to explore a new medium and to work with the amazing colours available to make these works. It was also memorable as it represented my first foray into creating more self initiated artworks which I hope to do more of in the future.”


Pattern Planter
“This crazy pattern planter was created for Frankie Magazine as part of their ‘a little bit crafty’ book. It was a fun project to work on as I got to come up with a project idea from scratch that people could make themselves and the outcome was full of colour and patterns which I love.”
