Media professionals and industry personnel are faced today with the convergence and emergence of sub-cultures in the creative industry. With exciting times ahead and in a city that is growing exponentially, Brisbane will hold on tight as it foresees some of these changes. Here at Creative Drinks my mission is to keep you informed about the issues facing our current media landscape. I will keep readers up to date and up to speed as we embrace the changing face of media innovation. Being a recent graduate of journalism, I am passionate about the future direction the creative industry will take.

December 31, 2014 |
