Typism '18 Canberra
Each year we're lucky enough to partner up with our favourite conferences around the world and this year we followed our Gold Coast friends at Typism on their road trip down to Australia's capital, Canberra to join the conference fun at DESIGN Canberra Festival. Our very own TDK Canberra City Host, Elizabeth Flora gives us the lowdown on this year's event and her favourite highlights and takeaways from each speaker.
We chat with Foundry's main man Mat Colley, who shares with us his fave books & blogs, including Steal like an artist; his rebellious pre-teen years aka. stealing screen-printing supplies (there's a theme emerging here haha) which led to side project Multiply, and his plans to expand the team over the next 12 months.
Design is Yay
If you're obsessed with stationery and getting organised (like us) you're going to love Design is Yay! We had a chat with Wita about how she channeled her passion and skills into creating a business.
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’!
We chat to creative Chad Barnier, who when he's not freelancing on the go while touring with his band, Drawing North, calls Canberra home. Chad teaches us how to deal with the design disaster we will inevitably face sooner or later (computer crashing and forgetting to save your work) and his future plans for creating a mutli-disciplinary studio!

From 5 to 25 November 2018, DESIGN Canberra will be back to showcase the best the ACT has to offer across all design disciplines. Stay tuned for more details.

EP93 with Birgit Palma …
In this episode, we spoke with Birgit Palma Illustrator & Lettering Artist based in Barcelona. Today, Birgit is known for her Illustration but during her studies, she learned a little bit of everything including illustration, graphic design, 3D and sound design. Her work lands at the sweet spot between modern avant-garde and illustration. This episode was recorded in Los Angeles as part of our Adobe Max series. We spoke about Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and what impact it might have to artistic work, creating design systems and guidelines for illustrations, her regimented workflow and schedule, how she likes to create impossible imaginative work because the possible is all around us and using instagram as a playground for illustration. Big thanks as always to our friends at Streamtime who help make our episode possible. streamtime.net Our Adobe MAX series is co-supported by Adobe Australia and HP Australia big thanks to them for getting us to LA as an #adobepartner! 🙌 Birgit Palma instagram.com/birgitpalma birgitpalma.com/wordpress Links Mentioned en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapiens:_A_Brief_History_of_Humankind

EP92 with Adam JK on We…
EP92 with Adam J Kurtz on We're Going to Die In this episode, we spoke with Adam J Kurtz a designer, artists, author and more from Brooklyn. He is best known for the honesty and humour in his work and his books. True to his online presence, Adam was open, honest, funny and personal when we caught up for a sneaky chat in a press room at Adobe MAX. We spoke about Adam’s history moving to New York, that time he built a fan site for The Veronica’s, the internet, design, depression, taking ourselves too seriously and the fun fact that we’re all going to die. Thanks to our mates at Streamtime – it’s project management software we couldn’t live without. They’re also behind Never Not Creative who have a great podcast we think ADR listeners will enjoy.
