About me & my work:

I founded de Luxe & Associates design studio in 1993 and developed a leading specialty in editorial communication, with projects that included significant typographic, design and organizational change for clients that include The Belvoir Street Theatre, Fairfax Media, News Magazines, The South China Morning Post, Indonesia’s Globe Media, The New Zealand Herald, Monash Graduate School of Business and Westpac Private Bank. After winner the tender to redesign the Harvard Business Review in 2009, I moved to the USA to take on the role of Creative Director of the Harvard Business Review Group … with a mandate to develop the HBR brand across all media. My role at HBR is two-fold. To bring design to the centre of our organization, and to bring design into the management conversation.

I continue to write on design and guest-lecture at Sydney’s University of Technology and other design schools.
