Canadian government logo competition infuriates graphic designers.
Over the years the DIA and most other major design organisations have expressed their strong opposition to speculative design work, otherwise known as free pitching.
Despite this opposition, the combined pressures of too many people claiming to be designers competing for too little work, the proliferation of computer skills and software programmes, and the rise of online crowdsourcing ‘design’ sites like 99designs, means that the problem of free pitching remains a hot topic in the design profession.

Interior Designer and Director
Travel planning, eating my way through the best restaurants, and shopping of any kind, especially at Bunnings and Ferragamo.
Best design I've seen lately:
The One & Only resort on the Palm, Dubai. A spectacular hotel that combines a traditional UAE aesthetic with a contemporary taste. It is impeccably refined and understatedly glamorous and luxurious, yet it still feels comfortable and approachable.
