Corban & Blair is Gillian Corban and Amanda Blair, who with our talented team have been designing products for over 20 years. We have a reputation for being passionate about design, style and getting clients exactly what they want - even a little extra. We are constantly praised for our fast and friendly customer service and our stylish products.
Our approach is hands on and fashion orientated. We constantly search for new ideas and concepts to add value and meaning to the products we design. Ideas come from nature, technology, other cultures, materials, textures or intuitive responses to the market place. Creating two retail collections a year, special products for other brands and designing unique product solutions for the business sector is harder than it sounds - but we love the challenge.
Right from the beginning we were serious and committed to design, excellence and best business practice, but we never envisaged the stimulating, creative enterprise of wonderful employees, associates, suppliers and customers we continue to work with.
We opened a niche in Australian designer stationery in 1988 with our handmade journals and albums (our own hands in fact) and as the market changed and developed, we too evolved to match consumers wants and needs, creating new product styles in an array of materials.
We are committed to operating a business that focuses on economic and environmental sustainability. We pay the carbon credits on our New Zealand made photo frames. We sponsor a child in PLAN, a school in Tanzania and support the arts, schools, education and mentor and coach within the business community. We have worked with Euraba Indigenous artists and papermakers.
We think it is an achievement to have been in a business for over twenty years, that we are still passionate about.
