SAMANTHA WILLS FOUNDATION
Snippets’. Chats with Creatives. Here at Digital Fabrics we love everything print, pattern and colour and we love to know what makes designers tick. This series is all about asking some fun and different questions and learning about the inspirations and ideas behind the artist and their work. We hope to inspire others by sharing snippets of these creative stories. We gave the artists and designers featured a varied list of questions to choose from so we will learn something new from everyone involved, should be fun!
The exotic patterns Shyanne dreams up from her home studio in Caloundra caught the attention of both local and international designers via her Instagram page, and have sine graced the fashion runway for Bondi Bather as well as across the seas to Hawaii for an upcoming label that will be featured in the Emmy’s goodie bags! Not bad for a local girl who dared to dream big.
OC: You get your very own misty, dream sequence in a movie of your life, where 3 people alive or dead come to you like the ghosts of the Christmas past, present, future – who makes the cut?
SC: Walt Disney – his passion for quality in art and amazing imagination is something I have always admired.
Samantha Wills – the one event I have been to that she has spoken at, blew me away, what a clever, clever business woman. Actually some advice she offered was, always give more than expected, if you read the story about how she came to be the Creative Director of Yellowglen, it really shows that she is a savvy business brain.
Me at age 4, I’d love to have little chats with myself when the world was still only sparkles and magic in my eyes.
I first met Sunshine Coast local Shyanne Clarke by I guess you would say , a chance encounter. We both belong to a group of Australian business people online looking to collaborate with each other called Collabosaurus an absolutely amazing platform to connect, share and create magic.
Shyanne contacted me and said “Let’s chat to see how we can work together” and over one very slow glass of wine at a local Tavern on the Sunshine Coast, I must admit I have slowly fallen in love with everything this woman is and does.
INSTAGRAM: 5 THINGS I NEVER EXPECTED TO HAPPEN FROM POSTING ILLUSTRATIONS
We’ve heard a few owners of small business say they haven’t been interested in opening an Instagram account, either they’re too busy, or don’t see how it can work for them.
So we spoke to small business owner Shyanne about how the platform has significantly increased opportunities for her to grow a strong business.
