New / Old Inspirations

Recently, I’ve found myself returning to the inspiration that really opened my eyes during my development years as adesigner. These development years established how I view design now, what I regard as good design and what I find aesthetically pleasing.

Note: I define development years loosely as late high school when I tailored my education by selecting graphic and design based subjects, through to leaving university.

After sitting down and really thinking about how I absorbed so much of this type of inspiration, and looking over a lot of my recent work, I realised that I have come full circle to what I originally aimed to create as a student – though with a little more tact and knowledge this time round.  😉

This month, so far, I have been participating Movember. Any donations are greatly appreciated. This is our chance to help raise awareness and funds for men’s health – An issue that kills more than four men every hour.

“Movember aims to change the face of men’s health and reverse this way of thinking by putting a fun twist on this serious issue. Using the moustache as a catalyst, we want to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to learn and talk about their health more openly and take action.”

SP Melbourne 2013

Semi-Permanent Melbourne… Wow.

This years build up to Semi-Permanent Melbourne grew more exciting the closer the event came. With the addition of some awesome and very inspiring speakers, and the event being held at one of my favourite buildings in Melbourne ( Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Centre – It’s an architectural masterpiece ), I was hanging for this event to roll around – And I wasn’t disappointed.

All speakers this year were brilliant, but here is a brief summary of my personal highlights from the event.
