Shirin & Diba
Shirin & I met when I was commissioned to photograph one a project for Dot Dot Dash in 2015. We were introduced from our mutual friend, Mel, the owner of Melbourne based Cecilia Fox. Since then, after I myself realised that Diba & Shirin were indeed sisters, we have worked together on so many more amazing events, including the work we do for Shopping Centers, Events and Spring Racing. Recently, we also collaborated on an incredible project ‘Isolation Creation‘. We donated all profits to the Indigenous Literacy Fund in Australia. It was really fun to see how they put together a brief from start to finish. Diba would call me and check in each step of the way, and Shirin taking the creative styling direction on shoot day! For once, I got to see how great they worked as a team, not just arrive to see the final moments come together. And wow, was all I could say.
Shirin & Diba are the directors of Dot Dot Dash. A Melbourne based creative marketing and event agency that Shirin created just over 13 years ago. Diba joined only a year later. Some of their recent design projects include; Crown IMG Australian Tennis Party, The Park and Birdcage Activations for Flemington VRC, The BVLGARI Italian Film Festival, Chadstone A/W Launch, various brand activations at VAMFF, & Tom Organic Splendor in the Grass…. just to name a few.
In our conversation we discuss…
- Inspiring projects they have worked on over the years
- How they perfectly combine their work and family relationship
- How they developed their distinct style
- Where they turn to for inspiration
- Projects they are currently working on
- & so much more!
