Domestic Data Streamers
We had a chat with the guys from Domestic Data Streamers— it's pretty amazing how they tell stories through data! I would spend a fair bit of time digging through their work. Have a read to hear more on what they do, passion projects they're working on and their take on inters (apparently it'd pretty great as 63% of their mums would do it!)
Are you on the hunt for a good design time? Fancy a bit of sexy design work? Haha—look no further than achos! They have their very own tinder profile and have been up to some naughty things. We had a chat with Ben from achos, who filled us in on all the dirty details ;D
How lucky are we! We got to have a bit of a chat with the legendary Borja Martinez, creative director and founder of the studio Lo Siento. Borja loves to get his hands dirty and play with nature—clearly this has had some inspiration into the playfulness that comes across in the studios work :D Read on to hear some of Borja's awesome advice on being a young designer and some good tips on who to keep and eye on and who you should be reading.
We chat with the colourful trio at Codea Studio about how they came together; their super cool side project @eeeeeeeeee_disposablecameras (that's 10 e's incase you're wondering); and their number 1 piece of advice for students - 'jump off a cliff, and try flying' (metaphorically of course!).
