As part of the State of Design festival, Craft Victoria had a stand at trade event Design:Made:Trade which was held at the Royal Exhibition Building a few weeks ago.
This wasn't your usual run-of-the-mill trade show, and D:M:T flexed some serious creative and business muscle by housing retailers in recycled cardboard booths and various craft/design organisations in igloo-shaped (or geodesic dome, depending on where you're coming from) idea pods. No recycled ideas here people, just recycled cardboard!
Whenever Craft Vic takes on an external event, we always do it with style and with an entourage... this time our entourage rolled 12-deep!
For D:M:T we brought along our very own COUNTER posse comprising of Vince Letterpress, Ingrid Tufts, Wendy Jagger, Kyoko, Sunday Morning Designs, Kearnsie, Klei, Harvest Textiles, Lab 305, Mucke, Princess C, Lady J and the Upper Crust and Dani M Designs.
In case you missed out, here a couple of images from the event. We'll have more up on CLOG soon!
