Design Clarity alumni Bent Patterson and Laura Kepreotis recently joined creative forces with two fellow designers to form Sydney-based collective “He Made She Made”.
Situated in Darlinghurst, their soon-to-be open gallery provides a platform to showcase fresh, creative and under-represented talent by, “Bringing to life objects that might be considered art, but often encompass the functionality and utility of a design piece.”
We wish them all the best in their new venture and look forward to checking out the latest in Sydney art/design talent.
He Made She Made will launch to the public on 31/01/2012.

After a jolly Christmas lunch at Medcalf in Exmouth market, wrapped in layers of warmth, extra socks and gloves all safely on, skates neatly laced and with more than a passing resemblance to penguins doing that walk, Design Clarity found themselves on the edge of the ice at Somerset House last week ready for a truly London Christmas experience.
Concentrating very hard on staying upright, it was only after a couple of turns around the rink that we remembered to look up and appreciate what an amazing space Somerset House had become for Christmas.
Both Fiona and Alex, seemed to have no fear where the ice was concerned (growing up in chilly foreign climes must do that to you) – happy to hold everyone else up, and spinning them round corners, Fiona kept trying to tempt everyone ‘Lets go into the middle of the ice.’ I’m not sure what would have happened in the middle of the ice, but no one was tempted, I suspect some kind of Torvill and Dean routine might have gone terrible wrong.
Only one incident, a collision between Sam and the ice – but the handsome medic said all was fine, so back onto the …
In this year’s Christmas celebration, Design Clarity Sydney took to the golf course in search of a hole in one, an eagle, a birdie, or anything else we could find. After warming up with a golf pro at North Bondi Golf Course, the team tried their luck on the tee, and got in the swing of it very quickly (or so we thought!) The summer sunshine and rolling green hills served as the perfect backdrop for a glorious day – and armed with our Hipstamatic apps, it quickly developed into a photoshoot on the side. After golf, we continued the celebrations at Sean’s Panorama in Bondi for a delicious feast, drinks, and secret Santa… Ho Ho Ho and a Merry Christmas to you all!…
