Photoshoot, Article & Design Market!
Hello all! I'm not officially back from my holidays yet, but I thought I should pop in & let you know a couple of neat-o things that have been going on around ol' I&S HQ!
A little while back we were nominated for the Energise Enterprise Small Business Heroes - The Designers exhibition & we were lucky enough to be among the chosen few! Hooray!
As finalists, part of the prize was a pro photoshoot:

The exhibition is currently on in the Atruim at Fed Square, for those of you who are Melbs-based & is on until the 14th August. (I know, I really should have told y'all about it earlier.. but I am on holidays...)
It's pretty cool, there are 18 businesses profiled, with lots of photo's of each of us in our work spaces! It opened last Friday by the Minister for Small Business Joe Helper, with a luncheon & ribbon cutting ceremony. It was all a bit fancypants! ...a little tooooo fancypants for us, we kept giggling to each other "Are you sure they meant to invite us to this..?" and trying to keep straight, professional, businesslike faces on.
It was great seeing some of our friends there too, we got to hang out with Emily of Nancybird, Tina & Glenistair of Saltmarsh and I just happened to sit next to Jamie from Keep Cup over lunch! He was really lovely :) we do love our Keep Cups!
Anyhoo, as part of the exhibition there is going to be the Business by Design Market held in the Atrium THIS FRIDAY from 10-4, where all the finalists (and some extra lovelies!) will exhibit their wares. You should totally come along & say hi to us!!
And as part of the promo for the exhibition the Herald Sun put us in their paper:
August 5th, 2010.
That was pretty cool!
P.S. Umm, the photographer made me climb on the table, btw - it's not common practice. And it certainly wasn't our idea! xt
