Christina Waterson


Where and what did you study and what year did you graduate?
Bachelor of Architecture Honours, 2005, University of Queensland.
I also studied Visual Arts at Queensland University of Technology from 2000 to 2001 and graduated with a Bachelor of Design Studies in 1996.

Where did you head after graduating?
While maintaining my own creative practice I have worked for a number of companies and organisations in a variety of creative roles. This includes working as a graduate architect at Cox Rayner Architects, an exhibition designer at the Queensland Art Gallery and a designer with Urban Art Projects.

What motivated you to start your own business?
The professional feedback I received at the 2007 Design Island and the Bay of Fires workshop in Tasmania encouraged me to take the final leap of faith and commit full time to my multidisciplinary creative practice.

How would you describe your business to someone who didn’t know you?
My business is to create meaningful places of experience that engage the imagination and challenge the individual whether it be in exhibition design, product design, event interventions and installations or architectural projects.

How would you describe the products you design to someone who hadn’t seen them?
My series of products are beautiful and engage the imagination. They include sculptural forms and screens, lighting and jewellery, as well as commissioned site-specific installations. Many of my products have interlocking modules that allow them to be reassembled and the overall arrangement personalised.

What are the most challenging parts of being a designer running a small business?
Saying no to great projects because the calendar is full.

What inspires your design projects?
Natural forms, structures and geometries that stem from the simple qualities and properties of materials.

What are the next steps for you?
I plan to establish relationships with major clients and organisations, continue to time the release of new work series and having the flexibility to collaborate with other professionals across all areas of art and design.
