I was saddened today to hear of the passing of local creative Geoff Robertson. I had the pleasure of working with Geoff briefly when he was at Clemenger and found him to be an incredibly patient, kind and inspiring talent to work beside. I know he was also a dedicated mentor to many up and coming and established Adelaide creatives and will be greatly missed amongst that close knit community. My condolences to his family and friends and to his workmates at Nation.
In Wild Air in a weekly subscription newsletter from ever industrious friend of mine Heath Killen. Each edition features six interesting things selected by an interesting guest, and believe me, Heath knows some really interesting and and creative people who contribute every week. Running the gamut from photographer Ingrid Weir and her love of Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch detective series of books to environmental scientist Cameron Webb discussing his childhood love of classic Kenner Star Wars action figures, it’s a great insight into what drives and inspires these fascinating individuals. Arriving in your ‘inbox’ on a Monday morning, it’s the perfect panacea to the back at work blues. Heath is one of the most passionate advocates for Australian design and creativity that I know, and is always producing something worth paying close attention to, this may be his best project yet.
