It began with a request and ended with…well it hasn’t ended yet 🙂 This is the story of sustainable design and giving back, repurposing and the joy of seeing things live on in new and wonderful and creative ways.
Earlier this year we were given a brief to produce a high concept and highly sustainable event design for the packaging industry. This brief really encouraged us to look inward to our own sustainability practices and inspired some new thinking. This brief spurred us to strive even further with our designs and our approach to contributing to a more sustainable industry. Read More
It is with heavy hearts we return to Muggle life this week. It’s time for us to hang up our cloaks and pop our wands away as we say farewell to the Mystic Chamber at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Melbourne.
In December last year I submitted an article which was published in Spice News, I know, a bit fancy right? It covered the Top 3 event themes for 2018. The process of writing this article got me seriously inspired about our work at JAK and the ideas we had created and the wonderful events we have produced. It’s not often we take the time to gather our thoughts in that way to reflect and assess. And perhaps we should!

What’s going on this month? Heaps of stuff is the short answer.
If you’re in our industry or anything like us at JAK, calendar and public events make a huge impact on our business. There are generally loads of cool things to celebrate, Melbourne in particular, knows how to put on a show and the focus at the moment is the Australian Open.
So grab a racquet, fill an esky and get patriotic. It’s time to catch some fireworks!
Sometimes you run out of time. Sometimes you get too busy to do the things you want to. Sometimes you need to be unapologetic and say “I don’t’ care that this happened last year. I’m going to finish this article and publish it because I love it and I want to share it with others!”.
This story is proof that inspiration doesn’t fade (well it doesn’t for me). Additionally it will serve as a ‘watch this space’ for Frank Wild for 2017. If you don’t know them yet, make sure you get on board because they are sure to have some incredible things in store for us this year.
Zowie and Marky, sorry for harassing you for photos and info last year and not posting this blog (#shame). I owe you some champers. XXX
