As a design journalist, I've met and followed the careers of so many talented Aussie designers. I'm now at a time in my life where I can start to purchase some special pieces. There's nothing better than buying products from people you know and respect.
This is the #pukuottoman by @coco_flip. So well designed, so well made.
Thanks @kateelisegrounds @haslettgrounds!! #australiandesign #productdesign #ottomandesign #puku #cocoflip #furnituredesign

So we literally now go to @thepieshopmelb twice a week. These are properly good pies made (from properly good ingredients) by a bunch of properly clever clogs @mrwilkinsons @downhillpirate
Must haves: - The Allen (beef, baby!)
- The Shazza (who needs meat, gimme cauliflower, man)
- Daryl (Butter 'Chicken', where the chicken is actually turkey. Will make you wonder why anyone ever eats chicken)
- Buttermilk and (local) honey pie (holy moly, do it!) #thepieshop

Treated myself to an EOFY present with these #huldrawoodworks laptop stands. Got a great little note with discount code BENMORGAN for 20% off in his shop (for a year, and for friends to use too!), as well as a signed note and a tiny Swedish chocolate bar. So cute. Etsy done well. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜Š #etsybuys #etsy #laptopstands #woodwork #timber #swedishtimber #fsc #madeinsweden #dannyselvag

Something dawned on me as I saw this post from @pcraswell. At this moment in time, the VAST majority of design titles in Australia are helmed by strong, talented, fiercely creative women.
Please tag anyone I've missed.

Most of the above titles have women working across the titles in editorial and other areas too.
Countless freelancers too, such as Penny Craswell (@thedesignwriter) @nicky_lobo @leanneamodeo @aliceblackwood @rebeccalgross @moremargie @_justineclark @journogiovanna @trish.croaker (and so, so, so many more!) As well as literally hundreds, if not thousands, more globally. It's an honour to be led by such an awesome group of passionate editors, writers and influencers.
