Held November 14 at Firecracker HQ in Northcote, the event will kick off with a panel of three creative professionals. We’ll be asking them how they develop their style, maintain their freelance career and basically get it all done. Whether you’re a student hoping to kickstart your career, a hobby artist working a side hustle or a high-flying art director looking for a little inspiration, you'll come away with some cool ideas for your own process. 

Moderated by long-time frankie family member Jo Walker, the panel will feature: 

designer Stuart Geddes: Stuart Geddes is an in-demand graphic designer and publisher of Australian books. Read more about him here.

freelance photographer Anu Kumar: Anu Kumar is an Australian documentary photographer whose work has appeared in the New York Times. Check out more of her work here.

frankie senior designer Caitlyn Wynne: Dream job alert. Caito is a super-creative surfer who also happens to be in charge of frankie’s look. 

Also: graphic recorder and speed-doodler Sarah Firth will be on hand to do some live drawing of the panel.
