October update

It’s officially October and that means there’s 3 weeks of uni left…..wow. Actually, I’m aware 3 weeks is still a pretty long time and I’m gonna need all of that time to make sure this semester ends on a good note. So far the second half of the semester’s going relatively well, we’ve been given the task to produce a 5 second animation for the upcoming RMIT Communication Design event, which my exhibition design elective is currently working on and speaking of exhibition design, I’m part of the curatorial team! The role is quite daunting since I underestimated how much planning there is to be done but I’m liking the experience as we speak.

Last week I was able to stay on top of my work so I finally had time to catch up with some good friends. Decided to go to the Melbourne Show, mind you the last time I went was…I don’t know. Too long ago. We bumped into the Masterchef kitchen by the way. Oh hello there….

I don’t usually go out and shop but when I do, it’s either when the sales happen, when I have to buy gifts or when I’m overseas. Nothing beats online shopping though, good values and good variety which brings me to this photo of my  most recent purchase, the cropped trench coat. Has a distinct design and was perfect to wear at the Melb Show given that we had to battle heavy winds all day eugh!

Magazine Design

A handbound and handcut magazine with some hand-drawn elements. Gave myself a whole day to do this process of binding an entire mag. Clamps, foldback clips, a pencil, blocks of wood, white thread, PVA glue, scissors, stanley knives, a butterknife (to score and fold paper of course), rulers, cutting mat, and a pair of steady hands did the job. I will get around to posting more photos of the final product and an interactive PDF of my magazine soon.

Dream the World Awake

A short visit to the  Walter Van Beirendonck exhibition one afternoon was pretty exciting. It had this creepy/eerie/’what the hell’ atmosphere with mannequins positioned in varying heights, some were as high as 15ft above the ground, some slightly hidden behind others and staring straight at you.  I didn’t know who Walter was ’til I got to the RMIT design hub (we were encouraged to go see the space for this week’s exhibition design homework….and I didn’t even know we had our own design hub oh my goodness). Beirendonck is a Belgian fashion designer who uses graphics, unusual color combos and humor to describe his own sense of style. If you’re in the city near RMIT go visit building 100. You might be inspired.

Look at these two lovely folks. Can it get any creepier?

A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
