An outrageous concept for an innovative driven festival like Falls Festival Byron Bay. Designed for all those festival goers to relax, spruce up and dance their night away looking fab. Theme and graphic design by myself. The idea was to take an existing business like, Maverick Hair & Arts Space, and placed it into a temporary festival installation. Design and built around a 20ft shipping container.
MAVERICK HAIR & ART SPACE // Coolangatta, QLD. Australia
Maverick began in July 2013 when both my partner and i got tired of being an employee's and we were looking to start out own business. My partner, Hayley, is an amazing hairdresser/stylist and i myself was dabbling in a number creative projects. We both came up with the intended idea to mash our two professions together and see what outcomes came from this under one roof. And so the Maverick concept came about - we encourage our customers to be themselves and be mavericks. We curate our own exhibitions and events - where artists and designers can share and sell their work. I am truly proud of this project and it continually seizes to amaze me.
COOP ART STUDIOS // South Tweed Heads, NSW. Australia
Coop nurtures creatives through providing studio space for artists, designers and crafts person to design, build and make what ever they wish. It started from the lack of creative working space on the Gold Coast. Our mission is to provide a place where heavy work and machines can be used by the artists in a safe and collaborative environment. Coop Art Studios houses a woodworking room, clean painting space and a ceramic studio where we offer the hire and use of a Kiln. It is this sort of aspect of an art studio that separates us from other co-working spaces. Coop is still continually re-inventing itself and is in its second year of operation. Feel free to contact me in regards to any enquires about the space.
