About Think Outside

Think Outside is the creator of remarkable hand-crafted sculptures, décor and furniture for homes, gardens or as cherished gifts. All of Think Outside’s products are carefully crafted and designed with impeccable detail and built with integrity to bring joy into people’s lives.

Founded by Aaron Jackson in 1998, Think Outside has since gone from strength to strength and now employs over 300 people and supplies reputable home, garden and gift retailers across Australia, Europe, Asia and USA.

Since its conception, Think Outside has been committed to creating a global community by up skilling craftsmen in developing countries, whilst continually pushing the boundaries of art through innovation.  The unique pieces within each collection are custom designed by Aaron and crafted individually by artisans in developing countries, with Aaron regularly visiting to teach, guide and support the team.

This initiative was born out of Africa where Aaron regularly travelled for business; it was while in Zimbabwe he stumbled across locals creating rough metal sculptures on the side of the road. He recognised the skill and craftsmanship within each piece of artwork and the potential to support developing communities.

Today Think Outside’s workshop operates out of Vietnam and is the epicentre for crafting and building the thousands of pieces each year. The workshop has an established and self-sufficient team of upskilled local people with an aim to support the local communities and their economy. Meanwhile, Aaron and the team, at the head office in Sydney, are busy designing and creating new collections, driving the global business forward and spreading the word for Think Outside.

To date, Think Outside’s most popular bodies of work are My Piece of Africa and ee-i-ee-i-o. Two contrasting collections that appeal to a broad range of tastes and styles; My Piece of Africa, stays true to its earthy roots and is raw and organic in composition, featuring contemporary wall art pieces and elegant wildlife sculptures, along with refined cast iron bowls, fire pits and fountains. Its counterpart – ee-i-ee-i-o – strives to radiate joy amongst its audience by embracing quirkiness and colour. The collection features animals and everyday items, such as cows, pelicans, vans and barrels, which can also be functional items such as coolers or planters.

Think Outside, and its creator, Aaron Jackson, believe that one man’s success should help everyone, and that’s where the company holds its roots. Unrelenting in their commitment to the local global community, experiencing new cultures, broadening new horizons and seeing the remarkable in the everyday, encompasses what the unique brand of Think Outside is all about.
