Creative Matters Podcast: The Dub Designers

By Luci McAfee
Creative Matters is a podcast dedicated to exploring the creative process of expressive, interesting and funky people.

In our second episode we sat down with Steve Szell and Tom Emmett from design student based collective, The Dub Designers. The group promotes three main projects: firstly D/Zine, a creative related, aesthetically pleasing magazine that showcases design excellence. Second, is an installation constructed entirely out of bamboo in QUT’s Gardens Point campus titled Bambuild. The third project is The Artisan Window where QUT students work with the Artisan staff to create an exhibition in the store’s window.

Steve and Tom discuss the process behind creating and compiling their magazine and sourcing sustainable materials for their BamBuild instalment.

They also offer some helpful tips to aspiring designers hoping to transition from their tertiary education to an industry career.
