A couple of entries ago, I accused only yukky Australians of wearing ugg boots. Now, this is not strictly true, unless I am yukky aswell.
I'll never forget the day that mum took me to get my first pair of proper ones. There was a shoe repair shop on Flinders Street that happened to stock a fabulous range of uggies, and there was this pair... it leapt off the rack, and straight on to my feet!
I believe they were mid-calf, and dyed lovely blue. They were very toasty, and died of natural causes.
It's only now I find myself dreaming of entire bodysuit made of ugg.
I'm an Australian designer who specialises in digital and cultural work. Most of my career thus far has been on the web, but I'm excited that it's starting to creep out into the real world.
I am the founder of Museum in a Box, making interactive museum objects with simple, fun tech, for wide-as-possible distribution, and I own a company called Good, Form & Spectacle, making design in service to cultural heritage for clients like The British Museum, MoMA, and the Wellcome Trust.
