Yah I’m stupid. When I was depressed late last year I deleted my Instagram account as I didn’t think I’d be hanging around for much longer. I’ve started it up again and I’m a long way from the 13,000 followers I once had, but that’s OK. Please follow! https://www.instagram.com/justinfoxphoto

I’ve done my time with Graphic Design

A few months ago I soft launched my new Design Studio Threesome PTY LTD. Initially we were doing great! We got a fair few small $500 jobs in the door without much trouble, low budgets, but at that early stage we were just willing to take on anything just to see how we all got along. 

Then the wheels started coming off. 

A few months in and we’re still working on some of those $500 jobs. Graphic Design isn’t easy. Sometimes you hit the nail on the head first go, sometimes you do so many iterations you feel like shit for not being able to do what the client wants. 

All clients want it done yesterday but take a week to give you feedback. Not all clients are educated, not all clients want to be educated. Some clients want bad design, or worse, to sit over your shoulder and for you to be a mac operator.

I’ve realised it’s so important for me to keep my morale up and my ego healthy in order for me to continue doing work for others, as working on stuff which I’m embarrassed about. IE: stuff I would never put in my portfolio, is what’s going to kill all my passion and motivation to do good work.

About 10 years ago I was doing banner adverts for $400/banner. These crunched down gif animations took me all of 10–15 minutes to do and get approved. That’s $400 for 10 minutes worth of work, but after a while I lost my shit, had enough and dropped the job. Why? It’s because I’ve been doing banner adverts since day 1, the late 90’s and I never fucking want to do one ever again. IE: I’ve done my time!

So now I’m sacking some clients. IE: I’m giving up on some jobs that are almost over the finish line. Why? Because I have to in order to stay true to myself, to stay sane.
 
End of the day I’ve been here before. I’ve run a successful design company in the past, and I’m not so sure why I’m back here again, trying to make a mark that I’ve already made. It’s still early days for Threesome, but I’ve thrown a spanner into the works already. My 2 partners and the team we’ve built are listening, together we’re already changing directions towards photography/content creation and social media management, all of which are potentially lucrative and creatively challenging.

We’re still going to do design work, but only for brands we admire and clients that we legit want to work with. Saying no to design work we feel isn’t a good fit for our design culture shouldn’t be too hard to do, but finding the right clients that do fit in with our ethos won’t be so easy, but we know they’re out there!

My Muse

viv__x_pink_13

Viv and I make such an awesome team. We never have plans for our shoots, we just get together and do what we do. She gets better at modelling every single time and she makes me a better photographer by pushing me to find new shots, new angles, and sometimes even throwing away the grid and shooting looser, off the hip and just being in the moment.

luke_mangan_gnochi
Gnochi was yum, the spatchcock dish tho… delicious!

Mothers Day at Luke Mangan’s Luke’s Kitchen on Danks St. Interesting that they really didn’t do much with the run down warehouse space, much like ZEN Garage Leichhardt, all they did was give it some paint and left everything else alone.

Loved pretty much every dish that came out, the fish dishes not so much but everything else, especially the spatchcock dish (juiciest bird I’ve had in forever!) was delish. Homely flavours, really good cooking, great value too at just $50/head.
