Where and what did you study and what year did you graduate?
Certificate IV Furniture Design, 2004, Lidcombe TAFE.
Bachelor of Applied Science (Environmental Health), 1995, Queensland University of Technology.

When did you launch your own business?
The business was launched in 2001.

What motivated you to start your own business?
We were motivated by our idea and the product which we wanted to sell.

How would you describe your business to someone who didn’t know you?
We design and manufacture lighting.

How would you describe the products you design to someone who hadn’t seen them?
The PCB Lamps take industrial discards and make them a useful resource in the production of 21st century contemporary design. The lamps are representative of the electronic and synthetic era and also a move to sustainable living.

What are the most challenging parts of being a designer running a small business?
The most challenging parts are sourcing local manufacturers and multi-tasking.

What inspires your design projects?
We are inspired by strong environmental ethics, Cyberdog London and industrial discards.

What are the next steps for you?
In the next two years, we hope to launch two new products nationally and internationally and to further develop new products in sustainable lighting which are currently concepts. We also want to relocate from a residence to a commercial location and plan to increase our participation in commercial and domestic projects with industry partners such as architects and interior designers both in Australia and overseas.
