Just over a year ago, one of my favourite client's, Saint Cloche art gallery in Paddington was exhibiting at Sydney Contemporary for the first time with a solo exhibition of artist and colour superhero Evi O.

Sydney Contemporary organisers invited us to host an event on opening night and we held a panel discussion on the topic: Colour is my Super Power which I concepted and produced.

The brilliant panel exemplified the topic and they discussed how they each use colour, how it manifests in their life and work and how colour has the power to affect our emotions and psyche.
The panel was hosted by TIM ROSS (below). He may be best known for his work on TV and radio (at different times hosting both the number one breakfast and drive shows in Sydney) but comedian Tim Ross has also always had a passion for architecture and design
The National President’s Prize was awarded to Tim this year by the Australian Institute of Architects because he’s propelled Australian design – most notably modernism and its protection into the popular media.
