AUTHENTIC DESIGN ALLIANCE® joins the Melbourne Design Week program to spotlight the endemic problem of design theft in Australia by unpacking the importance of investing in the brands that create, make, sell and distribute original products.
Join us for ‘What’s on Flack’s Plinths’
Presented in partnership with Flack Studio, a panel discussion reveals how swapping out original products for cheap copies damages the entire design economy, and probes the responsibility of design professionals to invest in original products and brands.
We also explore how in these challenging times should we now, more than ever before, consider investing in locally created products to best support the future growth of our industry.
MODERATED PANEL DISCUSSION
A moderated panel discussion and an industry information evening will be followed by drinks.
