What do you love about design?

I love that design is so intrinsically multi–faceted. When the world of design was first opened up to me, it was through seeking a form of creative expression that allowed me to think and create bigger. Flash forward a few years, and I get to design and create for myself, clients and exhibitions, both conceptually-driven work and for artistic and creative expression. I just think it’s the coolest thing ever, to be able to do that. I love that design is so fundamental to everything!

Why do you teach?

To be able to support, inspire and engage with emerging designers at this pivotal point in their careers is such an incredible and important opportunity. As a once impressionable student myself, the opportunity to provide confidence and assistance to other students is a really special notion. A great teacher helped me find confidence in my design work, and here I am—so to be able to provide that same inspiration is an amazing prospect.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

I am a freelance graphic designer, artist and art curator. My design practice consists for the large part of branding and identity for projects in the music/entertainment/arts industries which I am extremely grateful for! I am currently a board member for Outer Space, a leading non-profit contemporary arts organisation in Brisbane, where I am in charge of Visual Communication. I have also been recently signed by Crown Ruler, a Melbourne-based music creative agency synonymous with forward-thinking music in Australia and beyond. As part of the team, we bring to life campaigns for clients such as Converse, Red Bull Music and The Design Institute Australia.

What or who are you loving right now?

Some of my favourite designers/agencies that I really love at the moment would be Bráulio Amado, FISK Projects, Luca Lozano/Klasse Wrecks. Outside of the design world, I am forever and always in love with artists and their forms, such as Jean Hans Arp, Georgia O’Keefe, Rene Magritte, Isamu Noguchi, Henri Matisse, Le Corbusier to name a few. I could go on and on!

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

NeueBit by Pangram—your classic san serif with a spicy digital twist 🌶️

What’s your favourite blog?

Some of my favourite blogs/magazines that I come back to pretty regularly would be Juxtapoz and Perdiz Magazine. I mostly stay updated/inspired through Instagram!
