Introducing the first edition of CWR
A collection of essays on the paradigm shifts in design.

We're launching the publication in both Melbourne and Sydney, and we’d like to celebrate with you.

We hope you’ll join us for drinks and nibbles (and to pick up your copy).
RSVP here: Melbourne launch, October 3
· Sydney launch, October 4

CWR is an infrequent publication produced by Craig Walker to explore design, innovation and data, to showcase the talents of our in-house studio and to encourage conversation and collaboration.

Highlights of our launch issue include:

Chris Downs, founder of live/work, tracing service design’s evolution from theory to practice to its third phase, which he believes will be its most powerful.

Gill Wildman, a leader in design management and education, arguing that design thinking has overlooked the craft that design practitioners bring to ‘design doing.’

Tom Lee, director of the Master of Design at UTS, examining the relationships necessary between industry and education to produce designers of the future.

Xavier Rizos, strategist and radical thinker, riffing on how ecosystems offer a way to think about and understand the major shift in the very nature of business.

To get your hands on a copy, come along to our Melbourne launch event on October 3, or our Sydney launch event on October 4.

If you can't make it, shoot us an email at and we'll post one out to you.
