Ambassadors

Indesign Media was born out of a desire to cover the best projects, products and people in the Asia Pacific. We are inspired by the people from our region who constantly create and consolidate the local design culture – and we’re sure they inspire you too!

Our Official Ambassadors for Melbourne Indesign are iconic in the industry, renowned and often awarded for their innovation, creativity and forward thinking. We’ve brought these key thinkers on board to help us shape Melbourne Indesign, creating an event that truly reflects our flourishing design industry. Ahead of attending the event, they will also be sharing their exclusive picks of go-see timed events, projects and products.

These four people represent four different facets of design, and we’re very proud to have them serving as Ambassadors for this year’s Melbourne Indesign!

Adèle Winteridge
The founder and creative mastermind behind Foolscap Studio, Adèle brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our event. A degree in Interior Architecture and a Masters in Sustainable Development for Built Environment has seen Adèle working across public domain, hospitality, residential, and high-end workplaces.

Emma Telfer
