Graphic Expression

BY RIBA HAROON
@ VOL 6 ON MAR 07, 2015

We are Riba and Simran, an eccentric pair of design junkies. We're graphic designers, artists, bad karaoke singers, serial shopaholics and best friends. We're hooked on all things Adobe. Concocting unique, special designs to match your needs gives us a happy high! We love being art nerds. We love tackling challenges. We love seeing the "this is it" expression.

Designing Personal Sustainability

BY LISA HEMINGWAY
@ VOL 3 ON JAN 30, 2016

“When I first started, I became busy so quickly but I learned busy doesn't mean happy. I had no time to do the creative work I had been hired to do, let alone any personal projects, volunteer work or on some days even eat or sleep. People told me oh you're busy that's so great! but this kind of busy was making me miserable.”

In Designing Personal Sustainability from PechaKucha Night Nanaimo’s 3rd Volume Speaker Lisa Hemingway talks us through her journey of applying principles of sustainability into her personal life. A collaborative creative consultant with a focus on sustainable design, she provides useful advice in how to sustain yourself when you work on your own. After all, when you're your own boss, your most important employee is yourself.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, February 24th, 2016.

Darrin Caddes (@unclewillard) is a father and vice president of corporate design for Plantronics, so his days were already pretty full when he decided at the start of 2013 to take on a personal creative challenge - to create a drawing every day for a year.

His sketches are funny, sad, inventive, and great and three years in (and still going strong!) his "Daily Doodle" project illustrates the power of a regular creative habit.
