Australians who have participated in Burning Man or a regional burn event are some of the coolest people I have ever met. These Aussie burner folk are a breed who hold Burning Man's 10 Principles close to their personal mission, and they are everything that is fundamental to being an Australian adventurer, larrikin, and pioneer. Say hello to the Aussie Burner!
Australia is home to a diverse range of burners from radical tribes and regions. They participate in Australian burns such as Burning Seed, Blazing Swan, Modifyre, the "big burn" in Nevada and a growing number of regional burns worldwide.
I love these guys and girls - these Aussie burners - so I made them a thing! Call it a symbol, or just a bumper sticker - the "Aussie Burner" is a design I've made for a bumper sticker project with my mate Jesse.
I met Jesse as a rum-drinking-pirate-burner at Blazing Swan. He asked me to design a sticker to identify Aussie burners whereever they are travelling in Australia and the world. I loved the idea, as I could imagine spotting an Aussie burner sticker on a kombi van parked in Fremantle, on a landruiser driving up the Pacific Highway, a suitcase on the baggage carousel at LAX, or stuck on a Macbook Pro in a Tel Aviv coworking space.
So I designed this Aussie burner symbol, and Jesse has gifted thousands of these suckers as an amazing vinyl-cut sticker. These were meant to be gifted at Burning Seed 2015, which was trajically cancelled due to flooding. Now we have a ship-load of Aussie burner stickers to gift!
If you would like one, it's yours - for freeeee! (While this ship-load lasts)
Get in touch and I'll give you a sticker or two! Give me buck or two for postage and I can even send it to you anywhere in the world. While stocks last.Request a Sticker!
Distant horizons, dusty plains and vast oceans. The Aussie Burner symbol celebrates the land downunder of infinate beaches, arid expanses and lush rainforests. Aussie burners are spread far and wide, but they come together as one family.
I designed the Aussie Burner symbol as an adaptation of the Burning Man logo - a registered trademark.

This sticker was created as a gift for burners - by burners to enjoy!
