Typism

Typism started in 2013 as a way to introduce my design students to the idea of creating type and lettering for a living.

I invited seven Australian speakers to the Gold Coast, booked a venue and Typism was born. We have held another conference since then and published three books, with a fourth on the horizon.

The books contain some of the best typography, calligraphy and custom lettering in the world.

Creativity Fitness

Creativity is like any other muscle, it needs regular exercise to help build it to peak performance.

For 23 years I have seen designers and students peak and trough. Maintaining a regular creative practice is just as important as physical fitness. It is important to keep at it, not crash and burn out.

I am currently writing a book called Creativity Fitness which will be published by Balboa Press this year.

Everyday Creative

I am a firm believer in the power of daily habits to build creativity fitness.

I keep a daily journal and blog regularly at Everyday Creative. My goal is to create a community of one million Everyday Creatives and start a #dailyjournalrevolution.

The books contain some of the best typography, calligraphy and custom lettering in the world and there are plans to take the conference online to a global audience in 2016.

Goodbye Helvetica

In December 2010, designer Dominique Falla made a foolish and public declaration that she would devote herself for a whole year to one typeface and one typeface only—Helvetica. It would appear that the year went remarkably well for Dominique, and she felt it was only appropriate to say ‘goodbye’ to Helvetica properly.

This book documents the typographic installation Goodbye Helvetica, which took place in early 2012, in the Surfer’s Paradise Transit Centre on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Postcards from Rome

I attended a Masters typography workshop in Rome in June 2012 and devised this Book Arts project so that people could share the trip and experience with me.

“Postcards from Rome” is a 7″ x 7″ hardcover, limited-edition book of 50, one-of-a-kind tactile typography postcards, handmade by artist Dominique Falla.

The Postcards themselves have been requested by members of the public and their stories fill the pages of the book, as well as tales of the adventures I encountered whilst making the postcards.

The {tague} Project

Marvel at the adventures of author Dominique Falla as she “tagged” Prague on behalf of random strangers who made their “tague” requests via her website. This book is a collection of the stories and images that she amassed over those three weeks in Prague.

It tells an interesting story of a city, its monuments, its people, and Dominique’s interaction with them on behalf of random strangers from around the world. Their stories also appear in this book, and are just as varied and interesting as their tague requests.
