What does it take to go beyond being a creative with a good idea, to being a creative that makes an impact, and how hard is it really to build something that isn’t damaging the communities around us?

Griffith Hack, a firm of intellectual property specialists, host a high-caliber panel of creative juggernauts in fashion, design, culture and science, to discuss the evolving nature of design, and what it takes to create a legacy-for-good through ideas, brand, and more candidly… through breaking the rules. The panel will discuss the role of transparency in good design and explore the true value of creatives “new currencies”, their intellectual property.


Samantha Waite of TERMINAL SIX

Sam is a UTS alumni, with a Bachelor of Design in Fashion and Textiles. She is the co-founder of Sydney-based independent fashion space, TERMINAL SIX, alongside Kit Masood. Since 2018, T6 has offered emerging designers a space to operate alongside internationally recognised designers and to allow consumers to carve out their own niches from an array of brands that operate outside of the mainstream market. Terminal Six seeks to investigate the changing systems of fashion on an ecological and emotional level, with their designers working on a more intimate and intentional scale, producing in small batches and outside of seasonality. Sam and Kit strive to build a community within this framework, lending to a more affective connection between the designer and consumer.
