Your Project is in Safe Hands
Brandi Projects is an exceptional multi-disciplinary team who specialise in the delicate process of creating innovative, interpretive and interactive exhibits, themed spaces and displays. We are a Brisbane owned and operated company, who have been display and exhibition designers and builders since 1988, working across Australia for government, cultural and corporate clients. With a combined experience of over 80 years, we really know our craft, and can provide a complete service from idea to reality.
Our Directors are Paul Rowell, Conrad Herwig, Chris Thomson and Nik Brewster were long-standing employees of the company before taking over ownership in 2010. Each Director brings to the fore their individual strengths and abilities, which creates a diverse company, robust across all facets of the business. They largely still remain ‘on the tools’ heading their respective roles and each offer up the best of their unique skill set to every facet of your project.
The original owners Tommy and Hanne Brandi undertook their first Australian exhibition project in 1988 for Brisbane’s World Expo, bringing their successful Danish business down under. Since then, Brandi Projects (formerly Brandi Exhibitions) have built an extensive and diverse portfolio of work. We have also built a reputation in the industry as exhibition designers and builders whose attention to detail produces exceptional and durable exhibitions and displays.

The artistic and/or historic commitment he gives to his work amidst spatial challenges or within the framework of display constraints has been a noteworthy distinction of his career.

Chris’ talent of producing and coordinating precise and creative installations is second to none. He has an amazing ability to build anything, and his eye for detail has helped to gain Brandi Projects a significant reputation for excellence over his long career with the company which began in 1996. This means for our clients, that no job leaves Brandi Projects which is not finished to the highest possible standard. Chris also brings a calm and creative approach to installations. He has a great ability to problem solve and think on his feet which means he can often do ‘the impossible’ on the job. He has a knack of dodging any obstacle in some very remote places.

Nik has vast experience in all applications of signage and visual media, from computer cut signage through to cutting edge electronic multi-media.

Nik lends his expertise in signage and print finishing to each interpretive display, as well as any “hands on” help with fabrication and installation which is required. He also undertakes and oversees all painting, spraybooth and finish work at Brandi, including the painstaking preparation work which precedes it.
