The Sex, Drugs & Helvetica conference was back in Brisbane last month with another great line-up of creatives to share the highs, lows and everything in between of a selected project. The day was filled with interesting insights, sound advice and lots of laughs and I’m glad I got the chance to attend the conference once again.Read More
Who would’ve thought you could have a conference inside a movie theatre? I certainly didn’t but that’s exactly where the Brisbane Analogue/Digital 2014 Conference was held. Quite a good venue choice actually with nice comfy seats! I managed to attend the second day back in May with speakers from respected agencies and individual artists. It was my first time attending an A/D event so was interesting to see what had to offer.Read More
Once again, Semi-Permanent returned to Brisbane for its 6th year with eight new talented speakers. From artists to architects, the Brisbane line-up seemed to be one of the most diverse range of creatives we’ve ever had. It was refreshing to spend the day sitting and listening to their stories about their humble beginnings up to their work and experiences now.Read More
On the 6th of September I was fortunate enough to attend Brisbane’s first Sex, Drugs & Helvetica graphic design conference. I was excited to see the great line-up of designers that would each be talking about one of their projects – from initial beginnings to the final product. The conference, held in the Garden Theatre at QUT, had a great turn out and the speakers gave great insights into their thought processes and the challenges they faced.Read More
The Semi-Permanent Creative Conference finally rolled into Brisbane last Thursday after an unfortunate rescheduling from July. It was worth the wait for the 8 talented speakers that came to share their stories, experience and advice. This was also a special year for the SP as it was their 10 year anniversary (5th time in Brisbane). Despite the disappointment of the video intro saying ‘Sydney’ (Brisbane pride!), the day was, as always, insightful and inspiring.Read More
Last Friday I attended the Brisbane Semi-permanent Creative Conference – an annual event with speakers from all fields of the Creative Industries. This is the third time I’ve had the chance to go and I always look forward to listening to the artist’s and designer’s stories and presentations. I come away feeling inspired and ready to take on any design challenge ^o^. Getting the SP Pack is always a nice touch too (beautiful art book and freebies!) but more on that below.
This year we had a jam-packed day with eight speakers, ranging from designers to artists and photographers. I think all of them showed that obsession, passion and persistence are key qualities to bettering your craft and getting you places in the industry.Read More
