We haven’t really explained properly what has happened with Sex, Drugs & Helvetica.
Here’s the deal.
Last year, after to listening to the feedback from a lot of design students from around Australia, we decided to run a one off, single day conference for emerging designers that cost $40. The aim was to give students some practical advice about how to get a job, invoice clients, understand long and short grain paper etc.
Last year it was run by Positive Posters as a fund raiser. At the time we had no intention of doing another one.
However, we received a lot of emails over the break asking when the next one would be held. So we got together and decided that it might be the kind of thing that we’d like to do for a while. Sex, Drugs & Helvetica is now it’s own (for profit) company that is separate to Positive Poster (a non-profit organisation). Tenielle & I from PP are also running SD&H with Zac (who you might already know) and Andy.
We hope to run events for emerging designers that are affordable, rich in quality informative content and fun.
Our next conference is happening in Melbourne on Friday September 28th. The speakers this year are:
They have all been asked to talk about one of their favorite project in detail from start to finish. The ups, the downs, the production, client issues, everything. A real behind the scenes look at their work.

And, if you’ve got any questions, shoot Tenielle an email email@example.com
Hope that covers everything
