Who are Corban & Blair?
Founded in 1988 Corban & Blair was born out of an idea to work creatively. Co-founders and cousins Gillian & Amanda are product designers and manufacturers who with their team create marketing and gift solutions for their corporate & retail customers.
What do you make?
We design items such as journals in many sizes and finishes, travel wallets, tags, photo frames, business card holders, compendia, satchels, portfolios and albums. To remain relevant in the market we have changed many times over the past 28 years! We design bespoke items for corporate clients and collaborate with other designers and makers. Products are made in Australia, China and New Zealand. We have our own factory in Australia where we monogram products with our lettering machine for customers as well as make bespoke boxes, presentation folders that are hand bound.
What makes your product special?
We select materials and design to make the most for a client's needs. We collaborate with other designers and artists to produce products that delight. We are passionate about creating products that are innovative, meaningful and showcase Australia in a stylish way to reflect and communicate our unique culture.
Why do you do what you do?
We love being creative and working with other creative people, our team and our customers. Partnerships working with imagination and innovation are a reason to get up and go to work with a smile.
We think it is an achievement, to have been in a business for over twenty years, that we are still passionate about.
Why is it the perfect gift?
At Corban & Blair we value meaningful gift giving. We explore ideas to come up with clever gift solutions that people value & love. Products thoughtfully designed tell stories, and have a narrative that is significant & meaningful.
“Gifting is so much more than just the physical exchange of objects. When you put thought into it and choose a meaningful present, the gift becomes a wish for someone’s happiness”.
