The studio has been involved in volunteering, developing projects and producing communication work for design industry. On the odd occasion we are given the chance to make a poster, typically with next to no budget and wanted yesterday.
In the last five years with have presented over fifty designers with their brief story to tell. The main purpose of the event was celebrate creativity for its diversity, differences and curious passions of creative people. Shifting the focus from a creative style, a studio, or an individual that happens to be in fashion, or on trend. The project was borne in Melbourne in 2006 and concluded at the ICOGRADA Brisbane Design Week, October 2010.
