Charlwood Design Tumblr

The team at Charlwood Design have recently begun our own Tumblr. We will be treating the Tumblr as sort of a mood board for the studio, featuring designs from many different disciplines that inspire and intrigue us. Whether it be the iconic Braun SK 61 by Dieter Rams and Hans Gugelot, or a students latest work that we spotted on Behance or Coroflot- if we like it, we will post it up! Feel free to follow along.

Kickstarter in Australia

Last week Kickstarter officially opened its doors to Australian-based creators. The popular crowd funding website has already seen an influx of Australian projects, with several already achieving over 100% funding.

In addition to the already established (in Australia) Pozible and Indiegogo, Kickstarter will no doubt only increase the popularity of crowd funded projects in Australia. Charlwood has already seen several clients pursue and express interest in crowd funding their projects, and we are sure there are more to come!
