DQ brings you all the latest news on the People, Products and Parties in the Australasian design community.
The Spring issue features the full Saturday in Design (SiD) wrap-up, contained within a special, cut-out, 16-page SiD section.
Heading up DQ People is UK-based designer Benjamin Hubert, who travelled to Australia for Saturday in Design with Great Dane.
Benjamin chats with DQ on topics of international success, design ethics and keeping reality in check.
Also featured this issue is Parisian designer Olivia Putman, daughter to the famed Andrée Putman, speaking about her new role as art director for her mother’s acclaimed design firm, Studio Putman.

In the DQ Business Report you’ll hear from three design firms who work across Australian and Asia – it’s a business opportunity which has real advantages (and even some downfalls) – you’ll hear them all!
Also investigated in this issue is the practice of sketching, a skill integral to design and concept development, which is fast becoming a lost art… or is it?
DQ considers the work of a number of designers who happily pass up computer software for the humble pencil.

Last (but never least!) is DQ’s Parties section with memorable events from the likes of Wilkhahn, Poliform, Australian International Design Awards and more.
