Drew Smith: ethnographer, strategist and host of Rising Minds

Young Blood = Bloody Useless (for the most part)


For those of you not enjoying the wonderfully aestival* weather of Sydney, you may be unaware that the Sydney Design festival is coming to a close for 2009.

As part of the festivities, a market was arranged at the Powerhouse Museum to enable design-hungry Sydneysiders to access the best in emerging design talent. Having more than a passing interest in the event, called Young Blood, I offered to cover the it for the Melbourne-based Design Droplets blog.

I had high hopes of shedding light on a great event and a shedload of Australian design talent.  Sadly the outcome was a little different.

Head over to Design Droplets to read the full catastrophe.

*Wicked word for the day: aestival adj. belonging to or appearing in summer.
