We all got inky on TDKtuesday with @inklab_agency! Chatting up a storm about allthings design, print, user experience, the list goes on! And as the Canberra design community connect and share their experience and skills, the more creativity will spread! So if you're keen to know more freelance design, come to the next TDK Q&A in July and ask all the questions!

Eric Di Cuollo - Director of ED. is a digital agency based in the nations capital, Canberra. Eric tells us how Canberra designers and agencies are really starting to punch above their weight in the design community. He explains how crucial communication and process with a client is. While also looking at portfolios, the importances of how a designer can articulate design. Also how being involved in government work doesn't have to be boring!
We spoke with the Director of Inklab - Colin Haining, how being a competitive bunch by nature helps challenge themselves each day to produce better work, what they look for in a graduate and the table tennis comp - ‘The Terror-dome’!
