A Party in Melbourne Calls All Designers
20th November, 2012
Twelve months of work is finally coming down to a few days - some aspects are flying by, while other parts are like watching the kettle boil.
The party and event is the kettle, it is funded directly by ticket sales - there is no secret party fund, or profit centre - so we are on the hustle, ringing the bells, sending out our best to flog tickets.
Meanwhile, over in Collingwood, Ryan (Guppy) and Dom (Bartolo), at 21-19, are making work, finding the detail and sending it out for production, all on a shoe string.
What has been key in communicating the ADB, is capturing all the voices of our sector, creating insight and messages from this content. Ryan without fear, sought a range of views and ideas from designers outside of AGDA and dared to call us wankers, Melbourne a shithole, and acknowledged a space beyond AGDA - some became unsettled, while others have enjoyed the honestly, the clip, the thrift, and connectedness. The voice that Ryan found from the edges and spaces along the way from committees, is welcome.
Cheers Ryan for your care; cheers Dom for keeping a long held promise, thank you for your time, your best and inviting us to Start Again.
The images accompanying this post capture the motion package being developed by 21-19 this week for the awards presentation, a Big Tix will get you a front row seat on the night.
Visit, support and enjoy http://www.21-19.com/
Tix are available now (we still need to sell a hundred plus to cover costs), and at the door for last minute peeps, see you at the gig Saturday, a little moment in design from Oz and fun awaits.
Amanda, Pete, Che, Simon, Dom, Dom, Rachel, Matt and Andrew
All tickets are a legitimate tax expense. Come party and celebrate design in Melbourne with us on 24.11.2012.
