G’ay Mate is one of the cleverest pieces of graphic communication I’ve seen in years. A perfect play on a colloquialism that only Australia can own. It’s one of those ideas that I can truly say ‘I wish I’d thought of that’. The tagline ‘Australia, are we missing something?’ is spot on as well. Something so clever for such an important moment in time for Australia really made this work stand out for me.
