2011 — Object’s Digital Year

2011 was a big year for Object. In addition to continuing a strong exhibition and touring program (as I write this there are six Object exhibitions open around the country) and developing and piloting our landmark primary education program Design Emergency, we have had some terrific achievements in the digital realm.

The first, of course, was back in February with the launch of Object magazine issue 60. After an eighteen month hiatus, the magazine returned in a digital form, published as a free iPad app. We were delighted when it appeared as a Staff Pick in Apple’s App Store, and even more delighted as the numbers of downloads soared past the printed figures — this shift to digital has seen many more people able to easily engage with contemporary design from Australia and around the world. Exciting also was the realisation that it is not just people in Australia who are reading the magazine — people from every corner of the globe are finding it and enjoying it. Last count was 65 countries and climbing.

CUSP Goes Rural For A Day

It’s been a while between posts on CUSP: Design for the Next Decade (to read the rest, click here), but rest assured that it hasn’t been silent on our end. Holiday festivities, the packing up of a major touring exhibition and the opening of a couple of others ended up sucking a lot of the free time we had for keeping the information flowing.

Earlier this week, Danielle headed north through Sydney to find herself in a boat to the island that I’m lucky enough to live on. And so it was that the producers found themselves at an idyllic location on the first day above thirty degrees all summer — and we were inside, computers on, notebooks open, post-it notes all go.

The purpose of the day was to try and get our heads fully immersed in and then around the project as a whole, specifically in the lead up to the first physical instalment of the program in Sydney in March 2013.
