February 17, 2015

Have just installed a Jenny Kee Aussie bush floral bonanza in the huge graphic window of Melbourne’s contemporary jewellery space, Pieces of Eight – conveniently located next to Neapoli.
Celebrating the 2015 relaunch of Jenny’s iconic knits entitled ‘A New Beginning’, our display – inspired by Jenny’s passion for native flora – will be up for the next six weeks and forms part of the cultural program of the Melbourne Fashion Festival. The brilliant artist/jeweller Kate Rohde has a concurrent exhibition running in the space.
What a great honour to collaborate with some of this country’s leading creative forces!
Melburnians – go and check it out. More pics soon.

Late last year I engineered a new packaging concept – The Spectrum Bag – for Australian telco giant Telstra in collaboration with the brilliantly talented design team from Interbrand Australia.
I love doing packaging – super chuffed with the result! Head down to Telsta’s ‘Store of the Future’ on George St, Sydney and pick one up for yourself.

>> Spectrum bag’s full specs have also been featured on interweb packaging mecca, The Die Line.

Miniature paper sets for Belle magazine

October 28, 2014

I was recently commissioned by Belle magazine and Warwick Fabrics to create miniature paper sets to house  some iconic chairs that span four decades of design.
We had a lot of fun in the studio creating these sets. Lots of work went into all the fine details and the results look brilliant! The issue is on news stands now.

This coming Friday night the ever popular ArtBar at the MCA will be happening.

Curated by Pip & Pop, this month’s theme is Japan – one of my favs. Paperform was nominated by The Japan Foundation to take part, so I’ll be taking over a whole room on the night. I’m currently in the studio creating a host of new works to be displayed.

Should be an exciting night of all things 日本語 – See you there!
