Where and what did you study and what year did you graduate?
Diploma of Graphic Design, 2006, Brisbane North Institute of TAFE.
Bachelor of Professional Communication (Advertising and Marketing Communication), 2001, University of Canberra.

Where did you head after graduating?
I did an internship at an advertising agency while I studied at university. After graduating I travelled and lived in Japan for two and a half years. I came back to Australia, did some more study and started my business.

When did you launch your own business?
January 2007.

What motivated you to start your own business?
I had always designed my own stationery and wanted to be able to make a business out of it. The idea of working for myself has always appealed to me. I also wanted to create a range of products that were made with the environment in mind.

How would you describe your business to someone who didn’t know you?
We design and manufacture stationery and homewares products made from recycled and environmentally sustainable materials.

How would you describe the products you design to someone who hadn’t seen them?
Our products are well designed, kind to the environment, contemporary, fun, beautiful, natural…

What are the most challenging parts of being a designer running a small business?
The usual time and money. Having to do everything yourself or finding the money to get someone to help is always a challenge.

What inspires your design projects?
I’m inspired by so many different things when it comes to my designs.I keep scrapbooks full of bits and pieces I collect that inspire me. I also take a lot of photos and have sketchbooks full of ideas.
