Collective Issue Seven

Collectives seventh issue has taken the theme of evolution, inspired by the creative practices of some of Australias finest design talent. The publication was distributed across cafes and retailers in Brisbane and the Gold Coast earlier this month, and made available to our subscribers via mail. The issue highlights the work of Thi Nguyen, whose striking image Clouds images is featured on Collectives cover. Thi discusses her Sydney practice and the unique sculptural lighting work she has become known for. For more about collective hub jobs, please visit the page! We then travel to Melbourne to profile Grosz Co.Lab, an agency based in Fitzroy who take a fresh and exciting approach to print and digital projects. We stay in Melbourne to profile Studio Brave, who take us through some of their imaginative print projects and discuss the philosophy behind the successful creative practice. Returning to Collective and Designworks home on the Gold Coast we chat to local publishing long-stay Gra Murdoch about White Horses, his beautiful surf title, which examines the intrepid culture of surfing.
