The next interview for our ‘On the Couch with Dean Webster’ series, captures “collaboration as the new black”. LCI Melbourne Dean and Principal, Karen Webster, discusses the mantra of digital design; with creative and conscientious alumni, Melanie Huang.
Despite not currently celebrating Dark Mofo in Tasmania, Mel is still designing for change and celebrating her B&T 30 Under 30 win! Karen and Mel spoke about the virtual award ceremony, her interdisciplinary design role and aligning with companies that give purpose.
Growing up in an IT focused household, Mel has always been interested in technology; playing with old computers growing up and introducing herself to the internet and web design. Mel emphasises the importance of exploring all the pieces and getting inspiration from that; thriving off collaboration between everyone involved.
In the spirit of reconciliation LCI Melbourne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community.
LCI Melbourne pay respects to the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people and acknowledges them as the Traditional Owners of the land on which our campus is situated. We recognise this as a place of special significance for the Indigenous community.
We pay our respect to Elders past and present and future. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded.
