16 Sep Whistle Welcomes Olivia Pranic!
It’s onwards and upwards for the Whistle team as we welcome our very first intern – Olivia Pranic.
Currently completing her honours year of Industrial Design at RMIT, Olivia has a keen eye for detail and a passion for the problem-solving nature of design. Olivia already has a wealth of wonderful experience, from spending a semester at the Rhode Island School of Design – New York’s first art and design school – to volunteering at Amauni Foundation, a non-profit organisation in Mexico City. There she taught English and offered her talents through graphic design, helping to connect indigenous communities to a variety of the organisation’s services and initiatives.
Olivia also enjoys taking on self-directed projects and challenging herself with competition submissions, recently designing the playful ‘Squiggle Chair’ – her response to the Dowel Jones ‘Design from Home’ brief which aimed to inspire creatives working in isolation. Outside of design, she says yoga – and her parrot, Harley – have kept her sane through the recent lockdowns.
Olivia is excited to gain invaluable real-world experience at Whistle, and we have no doubt she’ll bring a unique perspective to the studio and team. Congratulations Olivia – We’re thrilled to have you on board.
