thedesignfiles Today on TDF we interview the incredible @leilajeffreys - bird lover , wildlife photographer and artist. Her mesmerising and highly detailed portraits of Australian native birds must be seen to be believed! Leila's next show features a spectacular series of birds of prey - it opens in Sydney next month. We love this interview so much! Such a rare insight into Leila's world and her bird-whispering ways! Leila is photographed here by friend and fellow photographer Cameron Bloom, whilst shooting @penguinthemagpie ! (A very special bird and the only magpie we know with her own Instagram account!) 3d

thedesignfiles Better late than never! Today we finished up our month-long spotlight on Small Business supported by Bank of Melbourne, with a very candid chat with someone I am constantly inspired by - Jeremy Wortsman @jwortsman of @jackywinter ! Jeremy masterfully balances right and left brain thinking - he's a strategic business head but also a highly creative ideas man. His agency, The Jacky Winter Group has grown from a small illustration agency to a full service creative agency representing over 100 talented Australian image makers, photographers and animators. A business that started out in JW's bedroom now employs 8 staff and a host of contractors and collaborators, with Fingers in so many pies! Thankyou JW for sharing your insights with us today! I knew you would have, like, 28 different online task management systems to recommend x 4d
