Hi I am a dummy! 

I started working at a massive research company two months ago and it's been amaaaaazing! I work in the design department and I get to turn research into visually appealing and understandable images. We do LOTS of info graphics, graphs etc so it's pretty epic and has to be massively accurate. We do large projects for giants like: Plascon, Foodcorp, Tiger brands, Bic, KFC etc.

While working on a lot of this research I found a bit of a loophole: Gender representation in research. The two dominant genders (male & female) are still represented by blue and pink, which I find very silly and old worldly. There is also no representation of genderqueer, transgender or any other gender binary (or non binary) groups. I feel that this leaves a massive gap in the research world as not all genders (or lack thereof) are being represented (or accounted for) 

So I'd like your opinion: 

How would you represent gender? Without using pink or blue (or any other gender-assigned colour). How would you represent the binaries or lack thereof? If you are any of the non represented binaries (or lack thereof), how do you deal with research (being part of it?)

Let's talk :)

We're all mad here: A Nonsense Hat by ChanelRossouw
We're all mad here: A Nonsense Hat
Soooooo I've been doing a thing! A life size cardboard Mad Hatter hat covered in cards kinda thing :D

I'm making this for my soon-to-be-sister-n-law's 21st birthday. Yes I know the images are shitty and I'll take a proper photo once the project is complete. This is just the process so far! :D :happybounce: 

I'm so stoked because it's looking really awesome and it's making me feel great :)

Let me know what you think so far!

RayBeast on Film by ChanelRossouw
RayBeast on Film
On to my second roll of film for 2015 :)

The Subject: My very awesome partner in crime and Fiancee, CaptainUnobservant Demoman's Crazy Eyebrows (TF2 Chat Icon) 

Let me tell you about this glorious creature:

Ray Whitcher, comic book illustrator, Senior lecturer, speaker, creator, love of my life We Like To Party! (TF2 Chat Icon) . This guy has survived some pretty gruesome stuff that would put most of us off life. I don't think words can describe how awesome he is and how much he means to me. All I can say is that I'm f*cking lucky and I love him to bits. 

This photo was taken on Valentines Day at Emmerentia dam. We had a lovely picnic, frolicked with nerf guns and just had a blast stuffing our faces :D 

But seriously, This guy is everything and more. He's my best friend and I'm stoked to marry him later this year.

equaled the one that found me,
When I finally Stopped"
