Debbie Lyn Ryan is a principal of McBride Charles Ryan, one of Australia's most respected and Internationally acclaimed Architectural Practices.  Her award winning projects include Klein Bottle House, Letterbox House, Fitzroy High School and Monaco House. Debbie presented the colour Red.

Pascale Gomes-McNabb is the creative force behind iconic Melbourne restaurants Cumulus Inc and Cutler & Co.  With a background in Architecture and Hospitality, she has dramatically influenced the new Melbourne dining experience. Pascale presented the 'all or nothing' colour Black.

Ian Wong is an industrial designer, educator and researcher.  He is passionate about the halcyon days of Australian household product design in the 1970's and an avid collector. Ian's choice of colour was therefore none other than Orange.

Michaela Webb is Creative Director of one of Melbourne's most exciting design companies; Round.  Her graphic led, holistic approach has helped to reinvent Bendigo Art Gallery and launched dozens of successful events, venues and projects. Rather than any old blue, Michaela's presentation focused specifically on Yves Klein Blue.

Beci Orpin is a textile designer, fashion designer and illustrator who leaves no colour unturned.  Her joyous illustrations, which grace practically everything from credit cards to trucks have established her as one of Melbourne's favourite designers. From a wide range of candidates, Beci presented the colour Yellow.
