Love is Love

All you need is love…

And the results are in and I am so happy for the leaps and bounds Australians have made by voting ‘YES’ to same sex marriage. Well done Australia!

The official results from the ABS website:

Of the eligible Australians who expressed a view on this question, the majority indicated that the law should be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry, with 7,817,247 (61.6%) responding Yes and 4,873,987 (38.4%) responding No. Nearly 8 out of 10 eligible Australians (79.5%) expressed their view.

All states and territories recorded a majority Yes response. 133 of the 150 Federal Electoral Divisions recorded a majority Yes response, and 17 of the 150 Federal Electoral Divisions recorded a majority No response.

Further information on response and participation within each state and territory is available on the ABS website.

What is a Graphic Designer & What do they do?

Most people today know what a graphic designer is but for those of you who don’t, you will likely encounter one in your lifetime.

Graphic Designers combine design and technology in order to communicate ideas. The tools of a graphic designer are varied, but the most important are the use of image and typography. In the hands of a graphic designer, whether with pencil or pixel, the goal is the same–to convey a message between client and audience in print and electronic media using color, type, illustration, photography, animation, and various print and layout techniques. They also produce promotional materials, packaging, design distinctive logos and develop material for Internet Web pages, interactive media, and multimedia projects. (1) Everett Community College.

Marble by Design 

The shops are full of funky marble, pastel and golden accessories at the moment and what a magnificent texture marble is!

From homewares to fashion to graphic design and everything in-between, marble has been around for centuries.  Our clever modern day graphic designers have reinvented the textile creating a feminine, pretty but funky design trend.

This one has come full-circle; human beings have visited marble before in our history; think back to the 80’s and interior design trends. What a decade that was!

Although evolved, this trend is so decadent, fascinating my Designers eye.

Beautiful, natural and forged by heated crystallised rocks; each slab of marble is unique by design naturally.

How do you feel about this quirky recycled and reinvented design trend?


There’s Something About Zebras

Quirky, one-of-a-kind and grand, these unique animals inspired my brand.

Is it just me or do you love Zebras too?
I just love their design and their monochrome hue.

Striking – made up of both geometric and linear shapes, they’re unique by design juxtaposed against an African landscape.

There’s something about Zebras.

Just ask a horse.

They wish they had half a Zebras Jedi-force.
