Hello! Welcome to Designer Melbourne.

Birthed from the fundamental belief that good design matters, we’re a group of designers, design lovers and overly opinionated visual creatives doing our bit to promote the value of good design.

Let’s be honest, designers have a vested interest in promoting the value design, we’ll be the first to admit it. But we feel the community as a whole have a responsibility to ensure the value of original, quality design. Without it Melbourne wouldn’t be the city it is today.

To quote designer Massimo Vignelli “The life of a designer is a life of fight against the ugliness

So what constitutes good design? Well to be honest we’re still working that out. But what we can tell you is that Melbourne has plenty on offer, we’re continually amazed by the talent and the diversity the local design scene and retail.

For our small part we’re aiming to be ambassadors of good design and where you can find and buy it locally. At the very least we hope our site challenges people to consider the design of a product next time they are looking to purchase. Support original design and support local retail. We hope you enjoy our posts as much as we do.

Designer Melbourne was founded by designer Brent Nolan, director of Blunt Agency, a multi-disciplinary design and creative agency. For more information visit bluntagency.com
