Epic Design Events in Review – Part 2

Dark Mofo – 8-21st June 2017

This year Dark Mofo celebrated its 3rd year of worshipping Winter. Emerging from hibernation and descending on Tassie are lovers of art music and food. The festival is often referred to as pagan, dark, weird… But that’s seems to be exactly what the people love! Dark Mofo gives us a chance to explore the dark by sparking our curiosity,  making it inviting and setting it on fire. I am also now obsessed with red crosses and neon.

Crystal Balling

I was reading a great article about the WGSN Futures conference in London this week and it got me thinking about the future… At JAK we spend just as much time immersed in corporate culture as we do designing. These worlds collide regularly. What we do day-to-day is create an intersection where art and commerce meet. It’s weird but it works.  Read More

The 2017 JANUARY Events

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!

Wild Ideas

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

Showing Off

Recently we were invited along to strut our stuff at Etihad Stadium for an exclusive famil hosted by our friends at Etihad and the EA Network.

We were allocated 2 spaces to design AND we were allowed to choose any style we wanted to show off! It IS footy season after all, so we chose to profile The Club House style and its classy big sister The Trophy Room. Both of these looks are Signature looks from JAK Creative & Events. Read More

This year JAK focused our designs around the food stations. Inspiration for our creations wasn’t too hard to find, surrounded by this much talent! Read More
