Secret Design Studio is very excited to announce our monthly mid-century modern inspired colouring-in competition thanks to the artist Christian Musselman. Hopefully, it will keep the young and old in your household exploring their artistic talents during these challenging times.
There are three consecutive competitions running over September, October and November. The closing time for each competition is at midnight on the last day of each month. Each month has three prizes, so there are a total of nine prizes.
Each person in your household can complete one entry a month, and submit it by email (no snail mail). If you are one of the nine winners then you can receive your prize and use it without ever having to leave your home. There are two divisions:
Division 1 (Adult) for entrants 18 years and older
Division 2 (Child) for entrants under the age of 18 (parent/guardian consent required)
There are two formats:
Digital – using any digital editing software, such as photoshop, etc
Manual – by hand using any media you want such as coloured pencils, texta pens, water colours etc.
Judging will be based on originality and creative flair and NOT on reproducing the artist’s original colours.

#SupplierSaturday Malleys was a widely respected Australian manufacturer of white goods which started back in 1884 as a sheet metal manufacturer making products for the building and plumbing trades. Eventually Malleys diversified into the “Sunrise” Milk Can, metal Esky, and Malleys/Whirlpool white goods such as the Tucker Box chest freezer. Malleys entered into a licensing arrangement with America’s Whirlpool to bring the Whirlpool name into Australian households. The catchphrase for advertising material, 'Guess whose mum's got a Whirpool?' became part of the Australian lingo and an indication of the high esteem Malley's products were held in. Malley's Ltd. was taken over by Simpson Pope Holdings Limited in 1979, and the company was delisted in 1983.youtu.be/i2tGMNYLF_o?si=lTsJHZ0UBUnAdnaXThis Malley's Enfield brochure has been affected by dampness in one corner as it was stored in poor conditions by the previous owner. If anybody has any tips for paper preservation please point me in the right direction as Secret Design Studio has lots of other supplier's brochures with similar light damage - apparently, they were stored in a builder's garage for 50 years!#Malleys #Whirlpool#enfield...
