SARAH McCOLL | SERVICE DESIGNER
When you talk to designers about how they found their way into the profession, you often hear a story with its origins a long way from design. Although Sarah McColl graduated from Billy Blue, Melbourne in 2015, her journey to a career in design – service design, to be precise – encompasses just such a journey. We wrote to her and asked her to tell us her story.
ANNIKA KEOGH | INTERIOR DESIGNER
Annika Keogh graduated from CATC in 2014 and landed her dream job with DKO twelve months later. Initially, Annika was hired as the receptionist for the architecture firm BUT after only a few short months was appointed the position of Junior Interior Designer. LJ04’s Sam O’Brien asked her the tough questions about her job and her views on disruption.
Disruption in Design’ is a specific act of challenging convention in how a company conveys its key messaging to stakeholders. It’s about designers being channel agnostic when considering how a piece of key information is communicated. It’s about turning normal on its head and considering alternative ways of engaging audiences.
THE WAY LIGATURE JOURNAL IS DESIGNED HAS BEEN DISRUPTED
The theme of Ligature Journal Issue Four is Disruption. Which for us is a most appropriate theme – not only for the content, but also for the way the journal will be produced. As you can see from the team photo, this is a much smaller group than has worked on previous issues.
TAMLYN BUTWELL | FREELANCE AUDIO ENGINEER
Today I found myself in the position of needing to update my LinkedIn profile. I am an audio engineer in the process of relocating to Melbourne and I want to find like-minded creative people and new job opportunities. So, I thought I should make my profile reflect more of my personality and be more memorable to those who click on it. I rewrote my summary and sent the link to the following people: my mother; two of my best friends; and my oldest sister.
NICK SIMPSON | GRAPHIC DESIGNER
Do you remember the last time you read a magazine? Clutched it in your hands? Felt its paper – was it glossy or rough? As our world ascends (or descend) into a digital void where we place less importance on the physical and turn to two dimensional forms of entertainment, it seems as though these things called magazines are being replaced by something else or even forgotten.
ROSIE CASS | GRAPHIC DESIGNER
It’s been eight years since I was told by a careers adviser that I needed to start seriously thinking about what I wanted to do with my life, and it’s been a year since I finished my Bachelor of Communication Design.
