Join us for the very last CreativeMornings/Brisbane of 2018! Traditions are sacred because they cultivate consistency and a sense of belonging. It’s the bread and butter for fostering connection and community. This month speaking on the theme of #cmtradition is Frankie Ratford of The Design Kids.

TDK (The Design Kids) is a global online resource and local offline communities around the world, for thousands of student and graduate graphic designers. They aim to educate, inspire and connect students to the design industry. TDK Director, Frankie has just completed her epic 6-year tour, sharing the TDK model with students from cities all around the globe through monthly #tdktuesday meetups.

Frankie’s name has been photoshopped into ‘Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego’ more than once. She’s fascinated with the intersection between design, travel, and business, and likes to do five things at the same time. She’s lived in 13 cities, in 25+ houses and is currently road tripping around the world for six years, right now in Asia and South America building the TDK empire (lols). She started The Design Kids in 2009 and launched with a market stall in the front yard with some mates and a DJ. In 2018, she launched a Design Studio Coaching arm to her company. She is a sunny Sagittarius who splits her time between her [60’s shack in rural Tasmania] and catching planes to far away (warmer) places.

Our place of meeting this month is The Refinery — A beautifully renovated warehouse space in Newstead. Register for this event on Monday, December 10 at 11.00am. #cmtradition
