FREDA CHANG

She loves reading, and introducing a storyline or narrative helps make meaningful designs.

JASON HARDING

Jason Harding is an academic, artist and designer based in Australia. He creates all sorts of stuff and is captivated by the way different methods and mediums influence each other. Will often fuse his own writing, spoken word, photography, art and design into the one brief. The first note on graphic design he ever wrote down was, “this is the art of thinking”. Dreams of one day creating something that has weight and being permitted the luxury and liberty of going completely mad in the process. You might walk past him on the street one day and never know.
