On the evening of Thursday 17 August, an esteemed guest list of 200+ gathered in the glowing Steelcase WorkLife showroom of Elizabeth Street, Sydney to celebrate the launch of INDESIGN Magazine’s 90th edition, and mark 24 years of Indesign, the magazine and the brand, supporting and empowering architecture and design in Australia.

INDESIGN Magazine and Indesignlive.com editor, Alice Blackwood, spoke to the community spirit and connectivity of Indesign Media and all that it does, saying, “We are the go-to intelligent, edgy, forward-thinking source that supports your daily practice and business, and inspires and informs you creatively. What gets us out of bed every morning is our obsession with understanding what it is that inspires and drives you, how we can enhance our platforms and programs to better serve your interests and needs. It gives us great pride to report on this in a critical and globally relevant way, and support this through our many multi-dimensional activities.”

CEO and Founder of Indesign Media Asia Pacific, Raj Nandan, whom many of us know through years of working in the industry, really lit up the evening, drawing from a humorous handful of hastily written notes, to give a speech that riveted the crowd and drew all together to acknowledge the many supporters – advertisers, architects, designers and friends – who have been with Indesign on its 24-year journey. He also gave acknowledgement to many of those important individuals, now no longer with us, who have left an indelible mark on Indesign and the design industry at large.

All-in-all it was a memorable evening, glowing with the golden highlights of INDESIGN’s 90 edition, and emanating with the energy that lifted off those in the room. We thank all who joined us for this very special evening, and to Steelcase – the consummate hosts.
