Claire Bonnor
Owner & Director, Austockphoto
Claire is a designer with an affinity for typography and illustration. Her career path to date has been informed by an entrepreneurial mindset as well as her interest in culture, branding and business. She began graphic design agency Boheem in 2004 and it's here that she sees her carefully crafted, uncomplicated design bringing increased faith in the brands she works with.

Identifying the lack of local stock photography for her clients led to the birth of Austockphoto. Launched in 2016, Austockphoto's focus is on offering familiar-seeming, heart-warming imagery captured by Australians, for Australians. The library formed a partnership with Adobe Premium in 2020 and its growing collection has since become Adobe Premium's leading source of Australian content.

A rolling stone gathers no moss, and as both Boheem and Austockphoto continue to thrive, Claire is in the early stages of building a new business with her husband. This time, a micro-distillery producing American-style whiskey.

Claire has been a guest lecturer at a handful of Sydney design events and places of study.
