    Did you guys notice it’s October already? How did that happen? This can only mean one thing – it’s time for our October 2013 round of Yellowtrace Spotlight.

    Yellowtrace Spotlight // November 2012.

    5th November

    Happy Monday dear readers! I would like to kick off the week by introducing you to a brand new regular column called “Yellowtrace Spotlight” – hooray! Each month I will bring you a whole bunch of good stuff I wouldn’t normally be able to share with you due to the limited number of posts. The column will feature all manner of things such as new products, art exhibitions, design events, lifestyle news and the like – many of those would normally suffocate under a large pile of emails and press releases I receive every day…



    Interview | DesignByThem.

    2nd March

    DesignByThem is a young and vibrant design studio based in Sydney, formed by Nicholas Karlovasitis and Sarah Gibson, who are partners in business and in life. Nick and Sarah first met whilst studying industrial design at the University of Technology in Sydney. In 2006, they decided to follow their passion to create products of their own for both the Australian and international markets. Their recent projects are quite varied, including the designing of medical products, fashion hardware, furniture, lighting and commercial interiors. Driven by clean, well resolved and experimental design with a healthy dose of fun, the products also reflect their passion for environmentally sustainable design through a commitment towards recycled materials and local manufacturing. On a slightly less tangible note, I reckon that I’m getting pretty good at judging what people are like by the way they answer their interview questions – which makes me think that these two are really nice people. And we love clever, talented and ace people here on yellowtrace, the kind that don’t take themselves too seriously…
