tessmccabe More 'client' work to show off today, which doubles as a plug for my better half @wearereunited's band @dollarbar. See, ten-something years ago, one tropic Brisbane summer, Dollar Bar asked me to design their debut album cover, and yada yada yada I married the bass player and then the other week we worked together on this new release single cover (and forthcoming album cover). Full circle! So kick off your summer and have a listen on Soundcloud. Legside. It's a cricket reference apparently. #dollarbar #graphicdesign #albumcoverdesign #probono #imassuming 1w

tessmccabe Currently @ #Newcastle airport after a whirlwind and super LOVELY trip to speak at this mornings #creativetalks about my career in graphic design, @creativewomenscircle and indie publishing for #renewnewcastle! Thank you for inviting me @siobhan_curran and great to catch up with the #CWCnewcastle ladies @christinaathers @kristywaddell, meet my cute niece and see @andreaevedesign, visit @highteawithmrswoo (finally!) and @hellonaomicakes plus lots of other great maker and designer shops and spaces. Newy has some fantastic dining options, highlights included AMAZING food at #restaurantmason & #reservebar thanks to Newcastle's 'Underground Epicurians' group, coffee & cake (and then breakfast!) at #goodbrotherespresso. Loved it! I will return! Xx PS video of the talk will be online soon at renewnewcastle.org (check out their past talks!) { street art aplenty too! } 2w

tessmccabe This is great news: Anna Kester of @kesterblack toxic-free nail polish fame is branching into cruelty free, vegan, palm oil free hand soaps! We've been on the hunt for a palm oil free soap for a while after seeing the eye-opening and mind-freak-out-ing doco Years Of Living Dangerously a few months ago. You might associate palm oil farming simply with orangutans in Indonesia losing their forest homes, which is tragic, but the whole situation there is so much more complex and contributory to climate change it's actually pretty scary. Annnnnyhoo, great work Anna, and great work @handmadelove for the cute packaging designs! Can't wait to try this stuff out. #kesterblacksoap #yearsoflivingdangerously #climatechange #palmoil #cleanconsciencecleaneverythingelse 4w

tessmccabe Undoubtably the @thenewnormalpodcast guest I love more than any other (sorry guests 1-11), my other half Patrick @wearereunited is sharing his thoughts on being a stay at home dad on our podcast this week. As usual, @emmamakesthings and I stray off topic and touch on things such as Montessori education, bacon and other pork products, finding time to have a conversation as a couple (where both parties are present and awake) and more. Listen in at www.thenewnormalpodcast.com or on iTunes if you can figure that shizz out. #parenting #podcast #montessori #dads #stayathomedad #filmeditor 1mon

tessmccabe In addition to taking to our overgrown garden with some shears, today's weather had me conjuring up summer entertaining plans and somehow that manifested itself into a new table cloth. Plus a DIY necklace for an upcoming wedding. I am like a superhuman of productivity when there's a lick of vitamin D in the air. 2mon

tessmccabe Another happy client picked up her newly designed business cards today (printed in matte gold Pantone 871U - woop!). The identity is sleek and makers-mark-able, and the design on the back is an aerial view of the river system near Anna's family property in Queensland, where she sources some of the materials used in her jewellery. No, I didn't hang out of a helicopter to capture that image - my trusty collaborator Google Earth assisted. #howgreatistheinternet #identitydesign #jewellerydesigner #businesscarddesign 2mon

tessmccabe A pretty personal episode of @thenewnormalpodcast is online today. Emma and I have both been through some parenting/life challenges over the last few months (Emma's new bub is here! Hullo Jethro!) but the seas are calming, so we talk it out in the hope that at least four of you find it somewhat interesting and/or informative. We also review what we learned from some of our wonderful past guests incl @murraydg, @tothotornot and @joeynomad.at www.thenewnormalpodcast.com or find us on iTunes. x #parenting #podcast #newbaby #secondbaby #toughtimes #breastfeeding #toddlers #tantrums #miscarriage 2mon

tessmccabe Annnnd, exhale. Today I pressed GO on my long-time-coming venture, Creative Minds Publishing Pty Ltd. It is now officially the umbrella that @CreativeWomensCircle, and the books that I produce, and all the ideas that I have for the future, will shelter underneath. Despite it still just being me as sole director/employee/shareholder/tea-lady, it is a very exciting thing! Making all the decisions about a business and its future on ones own is extremely exciting/rewarding/harrowing/stressful/liberating/stomach-churning/eye-watering/body-palpitating/happiness-making (choose as many as applicable on any given day). But I'm thrilled to share it with you all, because you all made it happen through your support and good vibes over the years! Creative Minds is for you, and us: www.creativemindshq.com #creativemindshq #graphicdesignspeak #eeeeekkk 3mon
