thedesignfiles Would you believe we discovered @billiejusticethomson after she photobombed a pic taken at our TDF Christmas lunch last year? True story! After a bit of insta-stalking we realised Billie was a talented artist and sign painter, responsible for some of Melbourne's cutest handpainted shop windows. @lisamariecorso tracked her down and profiles her for today's 'NKOTB' column. As lisa says, photobombing = our new submissions process! Shots by @evegwilson , link in profile 6d

thedesignfiles It’s been a while since we introduced a new local glass artist, but after discovering the work of Melbourne based Mariella McKinley recently at a @craftvictoria pop-up shop, we knew we had to learn more! We love Mariella’s distinctive vessels and decorative objects, with their delicate repeating patterns and ribbon-like swirls of colour. Full story on TDF today with pics by @kateballis link in profile! 1w
