What makes you smile about your job?
The freedom to be who I am.
Hardest thing about being a designer?
How your work is received.
The Qld design culture is evolving very quickly: Have you noticed a change during your time in the business?
HUGE changes, nearly like an overnight sensation, though I personally know it has taken longer than this. What truly has been outstanding is the acknowledgement and support of Queensland arts and design practitioners on all levels. Meaning we don’t just value overseas design and designers but are overtly mentoring and supporting our own talent. For example the growth of Fortitude Valley to physically support and house this industry was clearly the reason for Brisbane’s success at Brisbane Indesign 2007, as everything was in a concentrated and easily accessible area and of a very high standard.
On the HORIZON
What’s coming up for you in terms of future projects?
Apart from my own practice and investigating how far I can push hand carved foam and flock finishes and inflatable spaces, I am investigating a project for the Brisbane Festival, mid-year that will put a new twist on public spaces in the city. Plus I have just put the finishing touches to an architectural design lighting work on the fence at the Titans Stadium on the Gold Coast titled ‘Crowning Glory’.
