My name is Dana Tomic Hughes – I’m a self-diagnosed design tragic, interior designer, founder & editor of Yellowtrace, design curator, advisor & keynote speaker. Yellowtrace is an influential and award-winning online design publication. Started in 2010 as Dana’s passion project, Yellowtrace quickly gained powerful momentum and gathered a loyal following amongst the local and global design community, and those passionate about design in all it’s forms. The site is updated daily, Monday to Friday, with carefully curated, cutting-edge, and highly researched content in the areas of Interior Design, Architecture, Art, Photography, Travel & Design Culture. With an unhealthy passion for design, Dana commits to an abnormal amount of daily design research. Regular travel and attendance at premier design events, enables her to stay at the forefront of the design world globally. Dana is actively involved in the design community as a regular speaker at industry events, acting as a contributing writer and industry commentator, and lending her expertise as a judge for prestigious design awards in Australia & overseas. While she is super serious about design, Dana never takes herself – nor design – too seriously. Dana’s mission is to help designers reach their full potential both online through Yellowtrace and offline through speaking events. Dana’s engaging talks are jam packed full of retina-busting visual inspiration, underpinned with cutting edge design research, and delivered with her signature witty commentary and plenty of personality. Together with her life and business partner, Nick Hughes, Dana is Boss Lady at Studio Yellowtrace – design agency specialising in Interior Design, Creative Direction and Special Projects. The studio works with clients in Commercial, Residential and Hospitality sectors, taking a highly conceptual, inspired and holistic approach to translating brands & ideas into places and experiences. Thank you for stopping by and hanging out with us! TEAM YELLOWTRACE Nick Hughes Nick is co-founder of Yellowtrace and The Chief of Studio Yellowtrace.

Marko Tomic Marko lives and breathes technology and we are super lucky to have him as our occasional code buster, web developer and technology advisor. He has 10 years experience developing and architecting world-class web solutions, and a diverse set of skills that range from extreme programming to systems architecture. Marko holds a Computer Systems Engineering degree with a sub-major in Information Systems from UTS.
