What's up
Adelaide

Local time: 05.42pm
Weather: 17c / 63f

Hey hey Adelaide! Hopefully you’re all making the best of the break right now, and took up the chance to check out AGDA’s First Five Out last Tuesday, where we heard from panellists about their study and their first few years in the industry. Missed out? Not to worry, there’s still plenty of exhibitions to see, as well as photography and hand lettering workshops running this month. You can still catch Kristen Coleman’s Parallel exhibition showing at FELTspace until the 22nd – and make sure you hit up our TDK calendar to see what else is on. Finally, if you’re after a little inspiration, there is a great studio interview on TDK to check out with one-time pizza chef and now Adelaide designer, Tobias Blackwood. Stay tuned for some details for the return of #TDKTuesdays!

Billy Blue Blog

In 1987, Billy Blue Creative decided to open a tiny design school to train people who would eventually work in the studio. A crowd of about four was expected. Sixty-six people enrolled and there was a long waiting list.
In essence, the school was created by industry for industry and we’ve been building on that concept ever since.
