Hey designers! The tour at Pitch Studio for our April #TDKtuesdays was a hit, thanks to everyone who came – we had loads of new faces which was great to see. I also have to give a massive thanks to James Macfarlane from Pitch who gave a super informative talk as well as the perfect environment for us to network and ask loads of questions. Watch this space for more upcoming studio tours! In the meantime there’s plenty of workshops and exhibitions happening around Auckland. We have the #bossladies from Dow Design hosting another Ladies, Wine & Design night as well as the opening night for Daphne Masons exhibiton ‘Sacred Land Collection’. The following week is all about meet ups for creatives – check out our calendar for dates and keep your eyes peeled for our May #TDKtuesdays event.
