Deakin University in Geelong this week hosted the International Design Technology Conference to showcase the interaction of design across technology, engineering and business.
As the first conference of its type to be held in the southern hemisphere, it was an opportunity to go along to meet up with some of the world's most visionary and innovative designers.
Therefore, it was great to attend a keynote address by James Kennedy from Alcohoot about breaking the mould of rigid mass manufacturing with the move toward customisation thanks to technologies such as 3D printing.
I also had the opportunity to meet Olaf Diegel, the man behind the iconic 3D printed guitar designs which have taken music world by storm since they were first launched in 2012.
Congratulations to all involved and I hope to see more such conferences coming to Geelong in the future.
