nline shopping platform Little Birdie has unveiled a new brand identity and refreshed website to help Aussies ‘Shop From Above.’ The launch comes off the back of the appointment of creative agency Hardhat as its new brand partner following a competitive pitch process.
Little Birdie, which launched in August this year after securing a $30 million investment from Commonwealth Bank, allows shoppers to discover brands, offers, and prices from across the web, all in one place.

The brand’s new color palette, logo icon, and typography help shoppers discover the best in retail on the website, with features like ‘Today’s Top 50’ surfacing only the best offers. The new website was designed by Little Birdie’s Web Design partner Symplicit, in collaboration with Little Birdie’s internal design team.
“Before Little Birdie there was no one place to see a birds-eye view of all of online shopping. The new Little Birdie brand platform “Shop From Above” and new web experience gives shoppers the ability to fly above the congestion and swoop on the very best of Australian retail daily,” said Little Birdie CMO David Jennings.
Little Birdie’s new visual identity, ‘Shop From Above’ brand platform and website are being rolled out from today.

Tourism Australia spreading happiness with the Gift of Travel in Latest Campaign
Tourism Australia has launched a new campaign as travel begins to open up once more following the pandemic downturn. The campaign was rolled out in collaboration with M&C Saatchi Sydney and encourages Aussies to give the gift of travel to revitalize the industry.
The ‘Gift of Travel’ spot features Hamish Blake and Zoe Foster-Blake planning for the perfect gift. They humorously misinterpret their friends’ suggestions as we see shots from different spectacular Australian locations.
The duo search for advice from around the country, consulting the Outback Wrangler Matt Wright in the Northern Territory, rugby league great Johnathan Thurston in Queensland, actor Hugh Sheridan and Elli Beer in South Australia, and comedian Hannah Gadsby in Tasmania.
“The pandemic has left people wanting to make up for lost time and giving a travel experience will help people do just that,” said Tourism Australia managing director Phillipa Harrison.
“The Gift of Travel is about encouraging Australians to give more meaningful gifts this holiday season and in doing so give back to tourism operators and communities who have been among the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, Australians spent, on average, $770 on gifts during the holiday season equating to $16 billion in total. If we can encourage people to spend just a fraction of that on travel instead it would be a multi- billion-dollar boost for the tourism industry.”
“The latest travel sentiment data shows the majority of Australians are either thinking or dreaming about their next holiday and now is the time to convert that into gift vouchers and actual holiday bookings,” said Tourism Australia chief marketing officer Susan Coghill.
“There is a travel gift for everyone at every price point, so for a last-minute gift that will last a lifetime, get inspired at Australia.com.”
