How to Feed Your Design Monster Vol. 1

11 01 2012

I was recently approached by UWS design student Andrew Evans and asked “What is the most important thing a Designer has to learn?”.

Along with other designers from across the country, my response informed Andrew’s 4th Year Major Design Project, a hardcover book titled “How to Feed Your Design Monster Vol. 1”. The book features a collection of answers to his question, as well as a showcase of his own photographic work.

Andrew feels the resulting publication contains a very genuine sense of positivity and care. The book aims to inform and inspire design students, providing valuable advice from many Australian design industry professionals.

You can order a hardcopy of the book or check it out online via the website.

AGDA Mentor Program – Emily Chapman

29 12 2009

AGDA (Australian Graphic Design Association) runs a mentor program to assist emerging graphic designers make the transition from student to the ‘real world’ of employment.

Taking part as a Mentor for the first time this year, I have been fortunate enough to have a talented and enthusiastic design student by the name of Emily Chapman as my Mentee.

‘I’ve hit everything’ – a different take on Aussie postcards by Emily Chapman

During the final stages of her honours degree at Uni SA, Emily has shown focus and dedication, honing her design skills and preparing her portfolio.  Her hard work brought her across the finish line a few weeks ago at a successful graduate exhibition set to a horse race theme and attended by a good crowd of punters.  Thanks for the lucky horse shoe Emily!
