Above you will find Francis Ratford aka "Frankie" behind the wheel of a big piece of road metal. That is certainly not the only thing this lady is behind. Mastermind and front woman for The Design Kids Ratford is on a mission to find the best designers in the world fresh out of school and drive them on a big road bus to success.
Show us your bones was just one of Frankie's latest art shows. Off the back of 2 highly successful Studio versus Student concept exhibitions known as the "Terrible Two's" both of which reaching maximum occupancy, "Show us your bones" was stripped back to black and white design on skate decks, bringing it back to street and back to her hometown of Byron Bay.
In collaboration with local roots skateboard shop and Arts Industrial estate neighbour "Bone Machine" headed by skater, moto mad-ee, old school rocker and entrepreneur Matty Atkins; the show featured art works with the words bone - machine in mind and interpretations of what those really meant.
The art was a pretty good indicator of the calibre of talent being plucked from the school yard and these kids are definately kicking goals.
The Design Kids is just about to launch its whole new website and online shop where keen art punters can purchase works from the kids and scouts can find new recruits for design positions crying out to be filled.
