Meet your Newcastle hosts

Meet Candice

Having recently moved back to my home town after designing in studios and agencies, (and now going out on my own), I have a real passion for talking about design. I feel I could offer some insight and assistance to those starting out that I would have loved when I was a newbie! I don't have a massive circle of connections here so it would be just great to get amongst the community and expand my connections with fun creatives. I work alone so I'm making it my mission to create lots of social connections and feel this could be such a fun monthly event to look forward to :)


Meet Sheri

Hello! I'm Sheri, a Canadian that moved to Newy in 2021. I LOVE colour, crafts, and tiny cute things that have no purpose. When I was in design school, I was involved in TDK Vancouver and met some inspiring and creative people that helped me learn about the industry. When I moved to Australia, I reached out to TDK Newcastle to meet some similarly creative people, and I have made some great friends! Being fresh out of school or new to a city is a daunting place to find yourself, which I have first-hand experience in, so I am stoked to plan some fun and inviting events for like-minded people in the city!
