This lobster is a recent commission for Adidas Australia and Adidas Originals to launch their collaboration with Pharrell and his rainbow spectrum of Supercolor trainers.
I love doing projects like this because I get to indulge my passion for Antiques Roadshow and engineer a bonkers Japanese Lacquerware Inrō meets 10,000 Leagues Under the Sea mashup in the form of a superstar crustacean. Got to be one of my most favourite creations ever. He’ll be on disply here in Sydney soon so I’ll keep you all posted.
Also a fun fact I discovered during my research >> genetically, one in every two million lobsters is blue!
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.
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.
