We're a proud supporter of Got Craft?, Vancouver's largest indie craft fair. Started in 2007, Got Craft? aims to bring together a community that fosters handmade and D.I.Y. culture. In addition to their offerings from makers in the area, Got Craft? has workshops so visitors can make something to take home. We've sent a selection of our products and back issues out to the event as well.

The event runs December 14th and 15th. Full details here

How are you creative in your daily life? From 9-5, I am a graphic designer. But it doesn't stop there. I am constantly embarking on new creative projects, whether it be designing my own jewellery, experimenting with typography or creating unique knickknacks for my friends. I guess you could say that creativity is my form of escapism.

What are you most curious about? Where amazing ideas come from.

What is your most prized possession? I have a small box which by another standard would be considered full of junk. One item inside this 'junk box' is a ticket my dad gave me from his first train trip to work 40 years ago. It is khaki green and all worn around the edges with a small hole punched out of the corner.

What is your favourite letter of the alphabet and why? A lowercase t in roundhand calligraphy. What is usually two straight lines becomes an elegant beautiful letter.

What is your favourite colour? Gun metal grey.

What is your preferred creative tool? Adobe illustrator (and my mind of course!)

What is your favourite food? Vegemite and beetroot on toast.
