Hello
Melbourne

Local time: 06.12pm
Weather: 17c / 62f

Hello Melbourne! First up a big thanks to all the fab faces that made it down to our #TDKtuesday last week! I hope everyone got a lot out of the night and left feeling inspired. A big shout out to the legends over at Yell Design and Motherbird for sharing their amazing studio spaces with us. Watch this space for more upcoming studio tours! In the meantime there’s plenty of workshops and exhibitions happening around Melbourne. Head on down to Lamington Drive to catch their final exhibition Guy Shield’s “Kill Your Darlings” before they unveil their new exhibition space next month. Head on over to our studio interviews and catch up with the likes of More Studio’s Matt Tambellini about his experience working and travelling abroad. If you’re looking for a holiday project why not check out the upcoming design competitions over on our website! Enjoy the break everyone and keep your eyes peeled for the next upcoming #TDKtuesday.
