Semi-Permanent Conference – Brisbane

Friday 4th of July at the convention centre in Brissie City was a meeting place for all things design, this was part of a week long celebration of Graphic Design, Film, Art, Illustration and more which happens annually in four cities around Australia and New Zealand. I took a few notes during the conference and will share my experience with you now, sadly none of the photos I took turned out well enough to publish but (I hope they don’t mind) I have borrowed a photo of each speaker from the Semi-Permanent facebook site just so I could remember them better, and show them to you. THANKS to semi-Permanent.

The venue was sold out and we were lucky to get seats together with a good view of the speaker and screen, there ended up being 21 of us and we did walk in a little late. The first speaker was Louise from Frankie magazine who gave us some helpful hints and tips on how to survive in the world of design – this is great as it is what we Read the rest of this entry »

More Tea?

If there is no limit on the amount of tea that I can blog about, here I go again…

Mr Tea needs one more flavour to add to the collection that I had written about in a previous blog, I did have full intentions of having the black tea as my “special occasion” tea and just using the other three (breakfast tea + the 2 new ones) as the regular teas but I do like even numbers and sometimes just can’t stop myself when I’m having fun. I think it is also great to just do a little extra incase something is not working out in the end and you then have an emergency back-up without experiencing the whole ‘end of world’ scenario. So I now have a range of 4 regular teas: black, breakfast, roobois and white, leaving me to make a completely different package (and flavour?) for the special occasion tea.

Packaging for fun

Some of the packaging I have worked on in 2009 in my Certificate of Graphic Design at Kingscliff TAFE was fun and innovative. When I began the packaging subject I was very unsure about what I was doing and how to do it. Logically packaging works if the measurements work and I was good at drawing plans and measurements etc, so I knew logically that I could do it. I was determined to design my own templates as that is where the design part comes into it isn’t it, it just didn’t seem right to use a package template that someone else had used and just design a logo to go on it, so… here is a couple of my packages from 2009. Package, colour and logo designed and placed by me. Read the rest of this entry »

More Tea for breakfast

Last time I blogged about tea I remember I was traumatized by the green vanilla tea experience. Well, I have surged on beyond that to better flavours and darker teas. Read the rest of this entry »

Tea Time

Being a lover of coffee I have found myself in a bit of hot water lately with the tea fans in our class while learning about our tea packaging project. I foolishly wondered out loud what the difference between the different types of tea was, to me there is was 3 types of tea – these being normal, floral & green. Well, during our assignment on tea packaging using de Bono’s 6 hats to help with the process (I have had to put on my white hat and research) I have discovered there is more than a thousand different types of tea from more than thirty countries!

This is getting fascinating so I’ll share just the amazing bits of my research with you: Read the rest of this entry »
