September / Making the Cutt

The Creative that shaped Fortitude Valley

Join us for an evening where we take a wild journey down the rabbit hole in the ‘Alice Room’ at Cloudland with the creator of the iconic brand – the formidable Hannah Cutts.

As a Valley resident in the 1990s, Hannah branded many of the festivals, bars, breweries, arts bodies, charities and clubs, starting out in her garage with an Apple LC575 and an Epson printer. Cutts Creative was born and many awards ensued from the arts and entertainment industry bubbling over in and around Fortitude Valley.

For one night only we will look back over those projects with the multi-talented creator that shaped much of the Valley’s design and entertainment scene while enjoying the atmosphere at Cloudland – both case study and venue for the evening.

Please arrive on time (6:30pm) to enjoy networking with a drink on arrival and delicious canapés before the talk commences – all included in the ticket price.

Please note this is an 18+ event.

Thursday, 14 September, 6.30pm

Hannah Cutts 2017

Hannah Cutts grew up in England and Africa. At 19, Cutts moved to Brisbane where she studied Architecture at UQ, 2 years into the degree she moved back to London where she worked as a shop designer and photographer for Ted Baker. When the contract ended Hannah moved back to Brisbane to study Visual Arts at QCA. This led to a contract illustrating kids’ books for Macmillan.

Art exhibitions and illustrations wouldn’t by a house or pay for travel so in 1995, Cutts Creative was born - a design agency (Apple LC575 and an Epson Printer in a garage) that specialised in branding, illustration and photography. Hannah has successfuly branded many of the iconic Fortitude Valley bars, restaurants, festivals and clubs while also exhibiting her artworks of collected vintage upcycled treasures regularly.

In 2010, Hannah Cutts moved to Northern NSW and today maintains a career juggling betwen the many facets of her artistic life and career, including lecturing at Billy Blue College of Design.
