Jamie Durie to host Australia’s favourite design series – Channel 10’s ‘Australia by Design’

Jamie Durie to host Australia’s favourite design series – Channel 10’s ‘Australia by Design’.

There’s more to Jamie Durie, OAM, than meets the eye. A multi-talented person with a multifaceted career, Jamie is on a mission to share his passion for design and do what MasterChef has done for cooking – bring design excellence into the public domain and showcase Australia’s extraordinary talent.

As the new host of Channel 10’s, Australia by Design series, Jamie is clearly in his comfort zone.

“I’ve been part of the design community for over 20 years. During that time, I’ve seen a huge shift in people’s attitudes and their willingness to embrace design of all disciplines.”

After years of working on several design projects in the US, Asia and Australia, Durie jumped at the opportunity to be a part of Australia by Design.

“I’ve been an admirer of the show since the first series. It gives viewers such a unique perspective of the design process, it’s part entertainment, part education. There’s no other program that takes you behind the scenes in that way.”

Australia by Design’s executive producer, Mike Chapman is thrilled to have Durie onboard “It’s the perfect combination, Jamie has such broad appeal and his design experience is second to none. Many wouldn’t be aware of this, but he is one of Australia’s most awarded designers.”

Australia by Design explores the best of Australian Architecture, Interior Design, Landscapes & Gardens and Innovations. Chapman continues, “Since we began our audience has grown exponentially and not just from the design community.”

“It’s important to celebrate our design and innovation heroes just as much as we do our sporting (and cooking) ones. The success of this program is testament to that.”
