Jarrad Seng is a super clever Australian photographer and filmmaker based in Perth. He has a clear passion for travel, music and creativity in general, and people are one of his biggest inspirations. Recently, during a road-trip through Iceland, he tried his hand at some aerial photography. The risk and his effort have definitely paid off – Jarrad’s created a series of stunning images of volcanic rivers and lava wastelands that could pass as abstract paintings. We’re very happy to have him with us today to give us a little insight to this self-initiated project and his creative processes, and to share his throughs on the importance of taking risks.

Daniel Barbera is a Melbourne-based furniture designer. In 2004, he established Barbera Design – more the outcome of being an inquisitive kid and rolling with “natural evolution” than a conscious decision.

His work is nothing short of exquisite with a minimalist aesthetic that perfectly balances the delicate and the sturdy.
