The designer folk at Dosh have been at it again, getting all collaborative on us.
This time, they’ve hooked up with Pedal Consumption, a cycling and push bike-culture website which produced a smooth, racing-striped design; the Semi-Permanent Design Conference, which asked young creatives to submit a design for a competition, the winner of which, Stephanie Foti, gets her cute design immortalised on a Dosh wallet; and Stab magazine, the surf magazine whose resulting Dosh wallet is funny, quirky and colourful.
Check them out, we think they’re worth a look-see.

Its that time of the year again, when all of Sydney's inky-fingered hipsters and design aficionados descend on the convention centre for Semi-Permanent. The two-day programme of inspirational speakers that come from all areas of the creative arts.
The conference started with a presentation from the founder of frankie magazine - Louise Bannister.

Money. We certainly work hard to earn it. So what better way to keep it nice and cosy (while you still have it) than in a wallet you’ve designed yourself.
Dosh, the Sydney-based wallet brand that likes collaborating with creative thinkers has decided to team up with front-running design conference, Semi-Permanent, for a competition that offers like-minded artists a chance to be one of their design collaborators.
The winning design will be plastered on their virtually indestructible wallets and sold on Dosh’s website and in stores worldwide. And the cool part, you’ll actually earn 5% from every wallet with your design that gets sold. For more information log on
here or here to download the design template.
Competition closes on March 27.
Don't these look like bare canvases to you? Start designing.

We’re back. This time it’s an art attack. We explore the creative hub that is the Semi Permanent Design Conference and some of the artists and speakers at this year’s event. Including the awe-inspiring Tiffany Bozic, typographer extraordinaire Si Scott, Scandinavian design duo Toko, Australian live-music photographer Sophie Howarth and skate photography aficionado Mike O’Meally. There is also a bit on cultish Sydney independent gallery space, China Heights, and a video work inspired by Romance Was Born from our favourite Sydney video artist, Kim Greenway. The World Press Photo Exhibition (who ever said that media and art are not intertwined?) gets a look in.
