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.
Every year designers from all over the world anticipate this event, it’s almost like a one-day TED talk version for designers. I must say Melburnians are pretty fortunate to be hosts of the event every year! The 25th agideas took place last month at the Exhibition Center…yes it’s a bit of a delay posting this but I was waiting for decent photos to accompany this post and I finally have some to share! It’s my very first time going to agideas and even luckier for me I was granted the business pass thanks to IdN magazine. I had an opportunity to talk with IdN’s lead guy Chris about my feature in their magazine and it lead to this unexpected invitation to rep the idN booth at agideas. It’s 8am that same morning Chris and his dad came from Sydney and straight to the booth to help me and some of my uni friends to make sales throughout the day.

We did get a chance to listen to some of the speakers when it wasn’t busy. One of them was Neil who’s the art director for Avatar and Watchmen and he came down to visit us at the booth to take some photos (we got swarmed with paparazzi haha!). Aside from talking to him, listening to his speech was hilarious and then it came to Masashi Kawamura. I’ve heard a lot about Masashi but didn’t catch his speech since it was busy at the booth. I love the photo my friend Emily took of this Masashi quote, he’s done major work for UNIQLO, Sony and even made Snoop Dogg’s ‘Gangsta Luv’ music video. No way.
