Judge 2021
Motherbird, Creative Director

Jack Mussett is Creative Director and Partner at award winning design studio Motherbird. With a keen interest in how the brain develops and processes thought, he is a driver of new ideas and new ways to look at creativity both within the studio and amongst the wider design community. His love for how words form language has been a key driver in his approach to the design process, regularly placing language at the heart of any project.

With an undeniable passion for the design industry, Jack has been the Victorian Chairman for the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA) and an active member of the design community for many years. Amongst giving regular lectures at Australia’s leading universities, Jack’s public speaking engagements include; Semi-Permanent, Vivid Sydney, Creative Mornings, Pause Fest, Sex, Drugs & Helvetica and The Design Conference. He’s had the honour of being an emcee at the internationally renowned agIdeas design conference as well as recently being on the judging panels for the Create Awards, BADC and AADC.

Jack has recently launched Word—Form, which is a platform to explore the creative mind through written word. Jack has a love of brutalist architecture and cheeky wordplay, and concedes that this is a ridiculous juxtaposition.
