BlackWhite, issue 06

Welcome to BlackWhite magazine

One of my very favourite things about BlackWhite magazine is the space that it creates for stories that might not otherwise have been shared.

With the abundance of talented individuals that call New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands home, it can be hard to get your work and ideas amplified. We will always be immensely proud to show the work of our tallest poppies, but I also cherish every opportunity to step foot in a classroom or speak with recent graduates and those just starting a new business, getting their footing in the design world or testing the waters with a new idea. Each time, I am floored by the creativity, ingenuity, courage and tenacity that I encounter.

If you have received an email from me about your project and raised an eyebrow at the excess of exclamation points, know that I probably had to cull about a dozen from my first draft out of worry that my unbridled excitement would send you running. My awe for you is genuine, and learning about you and your work is the best part of my job.

Whenever I am having a less than stellar day, I know that I can open up my folder of BlackWhite fan art – something I could never have fathomed would be a real thing, but it is – and my 'happy cup' overflows once more. If you have tried something new with Resene products, please don't hesitate to reach out. It is always my pleasure to return the favour and become a cheerleader for your creative colour and coating ideas, no matter how seemingly small they may be.

Happy reading!
