Spring has Sprung Tassie! There is a new Graphic Designer job going at Think Creative Design Studio this week! As well as a rare opportunity to experience first hand the behind the scenes works of the Brickworks manufacturing facility in Longford. I don’t know about you, but I am loving Futago’s latest design work, in particular their work for the #diemenawards 2017! The Diemen Awards are all about celebrating the very best in Tasmanian design – so go and check out what you can enter your designs in this year! Lastly, thanks to everyone that joined us for a bevy at #TDKTuesdays last week!
