About the Guest

Mark Landini is creative director of Landini Associates, a multidisciplinary design and brand consultancy working globally from its Sydney base. Since 1993, Landini Associates has created and evolved retail brands, including McDonalds, T2, ALDI, Glassons, Sass & Bide, Jurlique and Coles. The firm’s new ALDI Corner Store, designed by Landini Associates, debuted in September 2021.

“I don’t believe design should actually, particularly in retail, be that visible. It should be a support system. And the thing that should be visible is the stuff that you’re buying. That’s why I think markets, old fashioned street markets, are one of the best forms of an expression of design, where really all you see and smell and touch and interact and bang into is the huge amount of, you know, wonderful displays that have been sort of just thrown together almost on the spot and then dismantled later on. Now that’s a hugely sophisticated machine of which there is an enormous amount of design involved.”
