About Clare

I am a designer and Illustrator based in Sydney. Most of my clients have been record labels or music festivals. I have also worked as an events manager, 3D animator and TV producer. I teach Design Thinking and Interdisciplinary Design Studies at UTS and have previously taught at UNSW Art & Design and Western Sydney University.

I've recently moved back to Sydney after living in Berlin for 6 years. I'm currently freelancing, completing PhD research and running a community futuring space in Marrickville called Frontyard Projects.
