Join The Conversation On Designing A Sustainable Future

As the climate crisis becomes increasingly urgent, there is no denying the need to re-think every aspect of modern life – from how and where we live, to how we eat, and of course, how we design.

Last month’s TDF Design Awards celebrated new approaches to design in the Sustainable Design category, sponsored by Mercedes me Store, and later this month, we’ll be hosting a panel discussion about how we can design better, for a better future!

On October 30th, join our editor Lucy Feagins, along with expert guests Abigail Forsyth of KeepCup, Karina Seljak of Seljak Brand, and packaging designer Brittney Wheeler, for this thought provoking discussion.

Following the recent announcement of The Design Files Design Awards Sustainable Design winners, our editor Lucy Feagins will be hosting a conversation all about designing for a sustainable future!

Join Lucy, along with special guests Karina Seljak of Seljak Brand, packaging designer Brittney Wheeler, and Abigail Forsyth of KeepCup, to an uplifting chat about the awesome things Australian designers are already doing in this space, and how we can do even better.

Abigail Forsyth was one of the judges for our TDF Design Awards, and spoke so passionately about the necessity of considering not just the materials products are made from, but how those materials are sourced, how long they last, and where they will end up. She brings with her a decade of expertise as the co-founder of KeepCup, to the panel!

We’re also super exited to chat to Karina Seljak of Seljak Brand, whose closed loop merino blanket took out the top prize, and packaging designer Brittney Wheeler of Contain Design Studio whose ‘Milk in Glass’ concept was awarded a commendation. These designers will share their insights about the challenges and responsibilities of designing new products in the era of unprecedented climate change.

All up, it’s set to be a super inspiring night from three local leaders (and ladies!) in sustainable design – the future starts here, people. Join us!
