Ruth the co-founder of Blink offers over 25 years of proven national and international experience.
Ruth started her freelance practice in 2000 as Ruth Hayden Design, then co-founded Blink Studio with Edward Trost in 2004.
Blink has worked with some of Australia's largest companies and dynamic small businesses. Over the years we have applied our experience and solved communication problems for clients in a dynamic market.
Our clients told us that since the GFC they don't want to pay for the beautiful office and glitzy overheads – that all just feels 'too important' now. (We asked them – they told us – we listened).
So we ditched the office (formerly on Latrobe Terrace in Paddington), and custom built a studio next to our home in Bardon. Find out about who you will work with here
