  1. I need some serious inspiration to get me going! Old skool analogue designer, new skool digital designer X_X

  2. Maxine

    Analogue will always win.

  3. Much to my girlfriends disgust, it would probably involve a nudie run around the neighbourhood.

  4. So so so excited!!! Need some inspiration!

  5. Very exciting! Need some inspiration!!!!!

  6. Kirsty Potter

    Being a design student in love with all types of design and stuck in a terrible retail job any experience and inspiration to get me out of it for even a couple of days would be SO amazing! I would be so super excited to come over from Adelaide, please, please!

  7. A/D is killer.. they spoke at my uni when they were first starting out..such a great conference. It is always good to be reminded that the designers / artists that you admire were once terrible too!

  8. I went to analogue/digital last year and left feeling more inspired and excited about being a designer then ever! It would be lovely to go again and have a break from all the assignments I’m drowning in right now. And perhaps gain some more inspiration to help me get those high distinctions.

  9. Megan

    I’d be happier than a kid in a candy store if I won this. Also, my mind may need to escape from my constant stream of infographic designs.

  10. Blake

    Now that I’ve graduated, in the second half of this year I’ll be heading on a 1-2 year sojourn around the world. Part of this will be about stoking every creative fibre I have to full output. In order to prepare for this I am doing everything I can to start the process now.

    Unfortunately, the price of conference tickets doesn’t mesh well with saving for the exorbitant cost of flights. Getting to attend without that worry would be such a great way to lead into the next phase of my life.

  11. Would love to go to this conference, have not got to one before..and would love to hear the speakers and leave feeling inspired :) I would be really excited to attend!

  12. Idam

    Being a uni student and being able to get the A/D Premium Passes would probably make my whole year, the people there + the goodies you get are amazing as well. – Brisbane

  13. Such an amazing line up! Love the way A/D is run. Having presenters from different stages of their careers is genius. Would love to win tickets.

  14. sophie

    I love we buy your kids, rolling stone and romance was born and I’d be looking forward the most to seeing their digital processes and what they have to say about their work as I think it would greatly inform my own. I’ve been to Field Trip the previous years and got a lot out of it. I’m also a big fan of the Jacky Winter agency and most of it’s artists/designers.

  15. Steph Jong

    SO BLOODY EXCITED!!!

  16. If I won the double-pass, it’d all be coming up Milhouse. Please choo-choo-choose me!

  17. If I won I’d be so excited I’d explode into a cloud of confetti and glitter! And then piece myself back together, grab a notebook and head along to A/D :D

  18. Alexandra

    I can not properly articulate how excited I would be, here is a serious of characters that might help explain; bcd josedn ;knpiju-f2n ins!!!!!!@#fvnpsdivno9uen da ,aspdsv.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!V;K QE!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Zoë

    I’d love to get in touch with top quality design talent to expand my horizons as I get into my second year of design degree.

  20. I went to analogue/digital last year and left feeling more inspired and excited to be a designer then ever. Winning this would be the most amazing thing, ever since leaving that room i instantly wanted to go back and listen to more amazing speakers who’s passion for their work was contagious (it would also be a nice break from never ending assignments).

  21. Lauren

    I would be so excited to win tickets to A / D that I would poop rainbows… everyone loves rainbows!! win – win

  22. Jemma

    This event is not long happening after I graduate my Diploma in Graphic Design in Sydney, which in itself is going to be super duper exciting. My sister also lives in Melbourne, so if I had an excuse to see her as well, that is also exciting. If I won this, I would be so excited that I would eat excited for breakfast, shower in excited, eat excited, brush my teeth with excited, talk about excited, watch excited and I wouldn’t be able to sleep because I would be too wired up from excitement. Im insaneeeeeeeeee.

  23. Jemma

    I don’t know if my last comment worked, but I don’t care because I AM ALREADY SO SO SO SO EXCITED FOR THIS… this shows how prepared I am… don’t hate someone who is prepared. You need to give this to me, otherwise I will be driving my partner insane with excitement until I can actually AFFORD to go to this… “Help me I’m poor” – Bridesmaids.

  24. The excitement that would be shown for winning this prize would be like nothing seen or heard before, therefor having a word made up in the dictionary in its honor is a must and this would be called “chirp”.

    “Dude i’m so chirped for this design confrence.”

  25. Rhys Davies

    I’d be more excited than the guy in the picture…

  26. IF I WAS TO WIN A DOUBLE PREMIUM PASS I WOULD JUMP UP AND DOWN A MILLION TIMES SCREAM REALLY LOUD AND THEN MAYBE PASS OUT IN EXCITEMENT!! LAST YEAR WAS AMAZING AND THIS YEAR IS GOING TO BE EVEN BETTER….BECAUSE there is only one way and that is bigger and better

    A/D IS THE BEST

  27. Al

    I’ve been watching A/D online for the past two years and never managed to get along – this would be ridiculously amazing. Ridiculously. Yes please.

  28. Al

    Yes please. I’d love it. So much. I’d be so excited I’d ahh, go to it, incredibly excitedly. Double exclamation.

  29. Karen

    If I could beg, I would… Well actually I am, you just can’t see it :P
    I went last year and it was the most amazing thing I have ever been to. I finally understood what it meant to be creative in this day and age. I would so totally love to go again. How excited would I be? Think of one of those super bouncy balls, preferably fluro pink and black, bouncing around your office and not stopping… well, that would be me :)

  30. Wow… was only drooling over this event the other day. Last time I’ve been to a design conference was over 6 years ago… and now that I live and work in Melbourne, it would be amazing to attend one in my new city. And to be honest… the burger & pint sounds pretty great too!

  31. If i win the tickets i be more excited and pumped than what Kanye West is when he looks in the mirror… C’mon

  32. Alan

    Been to other events in the past. Never heard of this one though, very interesting…

  33. Jondelle

    My brain would explode so vigorously with excitement, that my skull would resemble something akin to a post zombie apocalyptic society.

  34. Excited and delighted to be invited? I would be thrilled into a craze to attend 2 whole days (Master Class to amaze), become unrestrained with creative fuel from Ironlak, frantic over the Topo Design Backpack, serious delirious for the subscription to Desktop and joyous intoxication will be spilled at the After Party, before the Party and during the Party :)

  35. Joshua

    A DOUBLE TWO DAY PREMIUM EXPERIENCE!? I would be jumping for joy if I had enough money to purchase my own ticket! #unistudentlife #designersbudget If I was to win a free ticket packed full of goodies to what would be the most amazing experience of my life I would drop all of my things and scream to thank you, then run 6 million laps around my house as if I had just finished my 100th Red Bull in 60 seconds! My mouth already runs at a million miles an hour but if I won this it would probably fall straight off my face because I would not stop talking about it! On May 16th you would probably see a ‘joshua-shaped’ hole in my door because I would be running to get there so quickly! Design is my life, please Desktop Magazine, please!

  36. Debra

    to be able to see the awesome, totally awesome speakers

  37. katre

    BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!! Woop woop dancing around the house to some awesome tunes with AD tickets in my hand, ready to jump to the car and drive down straight away and wait behind the doors until they let me in :) That’s all of course ONLY if I win the tickets…

  38. Katre

    Excitement is understatement! I’m dancing around the house to my favourite tunes with AD Brisbane tickets in my hand, doing my little happy dance and laughing out loud – woop woop I won the tickets!
    … but this will only happen IF I win the AD tickets…

  39. I’d be as happy as larry jumping for joy on cloud nine !

  40. Lachlan

    It would be super awesome to go to the analogue digital conference to see the presenters and particularly to see Milan of ‘Stay Bold’ who I actually went to uni with and see what sort of awesome stuff he’s been creating!!

  41. Karen Marken

    Winning would have me go off like a frog in a sock
    Cj Hendry inpires me
    Her designs rock
    Cannot wait to be part of the Brisbane #AD2014 flock

  42. I’d be one seriously happy camper!
    I’d be excited from herehere!!!!!

    That is all.

  43. Chris Martin

    I’d probably go out on a night that’d cost the amount of the tickets I’d win!

  44. I’m a designer from Broken Hill providing big city concepts to isolated businesses, if you pick me to attend you’ll be helping me keep the design industry alive in a regional area.

  45. Zanne

    I would leave my kids at home so they don’t get bought, then I’d travel from the SouthSouth West of Brisbane and kick around a rolling stone upon arrival. I would stay bold all day – especially if a romance is born. But most of all, I would be the best Australian infront guest end enjoy the company I keep: I may even breed some new ideas. It would be a “Madsteez” couple of days!

  46. A/D? – Need to attend to find out whether there are also B and C.

  47. Jumping for joy –
    A gift for me and my boy.
    Like a dog with two tails -
    Keen to absorb the stories, successes and fails.
    Over the moon –
    The two days of fun would be over all too soon!
    Happy as Larry –
    We’d take away all the inspiration we could carry.
    On cloud nine –
    Time to collaborate and create, both his ideas and mine.

    I would give you my mum. Yes, that’s right. I would be so stoked and way too excited to think straight, that I would actually give you my own mother! I’m not too sure what you could do with her, maybe she could make you some food? But, yeah, that’s probably what would happen. WOO! YEAH! WOOOO!!
    ps: sorry mum

    Dear desktop magazine
    Words are not my strongest suit, so I have a visual demonstration of the manic and eternal joy that me and my best design nerd friend would experience: http://i.imgur.com/26yaqop.gif :D

  55. Toby

    I don’t always get excited, but when I do it’s usually when I win a double two-day premium experience to A/D Brisbane. Just saying.

  56. David Muirhead

    Gimme dem markerz

  57. David Muirhead

    oh yeah, im excited too

  58. Linda

    There’s nothing quite like attending a conference where I’m surrounded by other like minded creative individuals, being inspired to create my best possible work, to work harder to achieve my goals, and to come up with new ideas. The idea of being able to attend this conference, let alone with a premium pass, is enough to send me aflutter with anticipation and excitement. I know I’ll be walking around with a grin on my face for a while, as I’m thinking about the creative energy I’ll be blessed with from the conference.

  59. David M

    I’m hyped to wear my new Penfold Wutang shirt. Its baller

  60. Nicholas

  61. Nicholas

    I’m an A/D Veteran who would be in a complete state of euphoria if I had the chance to meet and have lunch with all the guests from this line up.

  62. Nicky

    I’m new to the industry and am dying to immerse myself in the culture and people! I’ve never been to a design expo or conference so I’d be like a kid in a candy store!! ON CHRISTMAS DAY!!! Yes. I’d be THAT excited.

  63. Nicholas Dunn

    I’m an A/D veteran who would be in a complete state of euphoria if I had the chance to meet and have lunch with all the guests from this line up.

  64. Nicole

    I’ve just finished design school and I miss it so much, looking for work is so uninspiring after a while…. If I won I’d be so excited, be the life of the after party and dance with everyone! Please oh design gods let me win!!

  65. Cher
