In Session 17 of Artichoke Night School, three creative talents share their stories of how changing careers, countries or disciplines provided the springboard for success.

Vince Frost, founder of Frost*collective, started in graphic design in London in the 1990s and achieved great success at an early age. Now based in Sydney, Frost works across graphic design, branding, advertising and environments and was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Sydney Opera House in 2006.

Caecilia Potter is founder of architecture and design consultancy Atticus & Milo. Potter studied chemical engineering and law/arts and then worked in business and IT consulting. After having a career epiphany while on safari in Botswana, she then studied design and now has a successful career in the industry.

Matt Bird heads Studiobird, a Melbourne-based practice that works across interior design, architecture, installation art and performance. Studiobird’s projects advance a non-traditional and experimental model for architecture practice.

Artichoke Night School is a highly respected speaker program presented by Artichoke magazine.
