Launching their first ranges inspired by unsung city icons in 2009, Make Me Iconic works with local designers to create the perfect giftware to inspire nostalgia in style.
Melbourne based Make Me Iconic is a young brand bringing a fresh approach to a range of classic designs and imagery showcasing the great cities of Sydney and Melbourne. Its products include tea towels, toys, mugs, wall art and cushions, all made of high quality materials like heavy-duty cotton, wood and ceramic stoneware. The Make Me Iconic collection aims to get people talking and to foster a new appreciation for twentieth century design and architecture, while adding a burst of colour and a dash of humour. The company prides itself on working with local, young designers to create the eclectic range.
The rivalry between two of Australia’s largest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, is alive and well according to new homewares company Make Me Iconic. Its fun and colourful range highlights some of the cities’ greatest architectural and cultural designs including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, a classic Sydney ferry and a much loved Melbourne tram. Scatter key pieces from the range around your home to create an easy vintage look that works with modern or traditional furniture. Many pieces are also limited edition, making it even more important to get your hands on one.
In a world of plastic, synthetic toys that shoot, make noise, eat, cry and pee, it’s refreshing to see the resurrection of the classic wooden toy. The Make Me Iconic Tram authentically replicates the real colours and design of an old Melbourne tram, complete with passengers and tram conductors. Your little one will use their imagination to complete the journey and will learn a little about Australia history in the process. The Australian Munchies Jigsaw showcases snacks that are just as popular today as they were 50 or more years ago. We’re talking pavlova, meat pie with sauce, Vegemite and of course the lamington. Teach your kids about their culinary heritage as well as improving their motor skills.
