This week, we’re introducing some friends from creative industries who are using MyBroadsheet presented by Mercedes-Benz. Below are a handful artists and creatives – from graphic designers to gallerists – who have been using MyBroadsheet to save and share their favourite stories. Find out where they like to eat and drink, and what they’re reading on Broadsheet.
Tristan Ceddia – Graphic Designer / Art Director, Never Now
In a recent creative couples piece, Broadsheet met graphic designer Tristan Ceddia and his wife, jeweller Adriana Guiffrida. A ‘triple threat’, Ceddia has turned his one-man graphic design studio into one of the most prolific and diverse independent agencies in the country. Never Now works across a varied client base spanning lifestyle, fashion and design. Often working on campaigns solo as both designer and art director, Ceddia has collaborated with Melbourne jewellery designer Lucy Folk, fashion labels Vanishing Elephant, P.Johnson Tailors and his wife’s label POMS, Lavazza Coffee, Capi soda and gallery Utopian Slumps. He is also one of the founding members of creative collective The Serps and creative director of online and in print journal The Blackmail, the latest issue of which is about to be released.

Joseph Allen Shea – Gallerist, Gallery AS / Galerie Allen
A gallerist, curator, writer and publisher of the Izrock art book imprint, Joseph Allen Shea curates on the move. After years at the Monster Children Gallery, Allen Shea set up roving art space Gallery AS in Sydney, converting a church, an old film studio and a disused sex shop into a space for his shows. Earlier this year, he decided to pack up and move to Paris to open Galerie Allen (just last week) in partnership with Australian artist Mel O’Callaghan. As Australians in Paris, they see their position as independent and refreshing, focusing on the exhibition format and its progressive variations including offsite, curatorial, academic enquiry and re-invention. Allen Shea understands the needs and difficulties facing artists and art spaces, and through Galerie Allen, proposes a curatorial solution for a new era. Moving between Europe and Australia, Allen Shea will be out here for the Biennale of Sydney early 2014. When he’s back, he’ll be eating at some of the restaurants on his favourites list on MyBroadsheet.
Melissa Loughnan – Galleriest, Utopian Slumps
Melissa Loughnan opened Utopian Slumps – at the time a not-for-profit art gallery in the backstreets of Collingwood – at just 24-years-old. With a diverse team of curators and collaborators, plus a constant rotation of exciting local artists, she made the gallery one of the most active and innovative spaces for experimental art practice. The careers of those such as Dylan Martorell, Nathan Gray, Brendan Huntley, Thomas Jeppe and Mark Rodda were helped in no small part by Utopian Slumps. In 2010 Loughnan relaunched her gallery as a commercial art space in the city under the same name and continued to foster the work of some of the most groundbreaking contemporary artist in Australia. Loughnan knows Melbourne like the back of her hand, but some there’s a few places she still ‘must try’, such as Brutale, Elk Room and N2 Extreme Gelato. Check out her MyBroadsheet profile here.
Megan Morton – Stylist, The School
Sydney stylist Megan Morton “creates atmospheres”. Housed under the same roof as Koskela and Kitchen by Mike, Morton is one of Australia’s most prolific interior stylists. Her work has been featured on the cover of glossies including Elle Decoration UK and Vanity Fair, Vogue Living, In Style and Inside Out magazines. Ever on the move, Morton also runs The School in Rosebury, a canvas for artists and artisans, orchestrating and hosting creative classes. If that’s not enough, Morton has also found time to publish her own books too. At home in Sydney, some of her favourite venues include Wilbur’s Place, Story Espresso and PAM Store. Check out her MyBroadsheet profile here.
Rhys Gorgol - Graphic Designer, The Company You Keep
Our company is often kept by The Company You Keep design studio. Rhys Gorgol and his team are, in fact, Broadsheet’s preferred graphics designers, who we work very closely on our look and feel. So close in fact, they share the studio with us at Broadsheet in Melbourne. As a holistic communications consultancy, TCYK work on brand strategy, design and communications, introducing people to brands and brands to people. As well as working on Broadsheet’s website, iPhone app and stationery, Gorgol has worked with clients from big drink brands like Schweppes to small local business, butchers (Clarke & Sons), bars (The Beaufort, Elk Room, Builders Arms Hotel), cafes (Traveller) and galleries (Hell Gallery). Gorgol is a regular at some of his favourite venues in Melbourne: Everyday Coffee, The Beaufort and Bezela Foodstore. Check out more of his MyBroadsheet profile here.
