In 2015 Ideas on Design proudly celebrated 25 years of presenting design programs for creative professionals and students, businesses, schools and the general community. We would like to thank all those who have been part of this remarkable journey.

We embark on the next 25 years with the launch of our first events in 2016: Gnomon Live Australia and Careers in Entertainment Design for Secondary Schools. Two special events for content creators who work in, or would like to work in the Entertainment Industry creating creatures, characters and environments for film, games, TV, VR and the expanding virtual platforms.

Following the success of our one day Entertainment Design Masterclass in May at ACMI, we are responding to requests to bring Gnomon expertise back to Australia. In partnership with the Gnomon School of VFX, Games and Animation we are presenting a weekend packed with live demos, masterclasses, outdoor cinema screenings, insights from Australian studios, music and the chance to meet up with local and international artists at the Abbotsford Convent and Shadow Electric Cinema and bar.

We have exciting plans for 2016 both in Melbourne and abroad, so be sure to subscribe to hear about our forthcoming programs.
