We chat with the magnetic sassy lasses from Unfazed & Confuzed.
Tell us a little about yourself using a Haiku.
We are 90’s kids
We think that we are funny
You will think that too.
Tell us a little about the origins of Unfazed & Confuzed.
Believe it or not the idea came about at Bend & Snap market in April. Fin likes labelling things and wanted to make offensive words look pretty. Sheena shares the same sense of humour, we decided to make magnets. Literally came from nowhere but is probably one of the best ideas we’ve ever had. It keeps us and others amused. People also seem to bond over a share of love for the same films & music, so we do quotes too – this way err’body has nostalgic moments.
Describe your creative process.
Someone will say something amusing, we will remember it (or jot it down in our sparkly notebook), go home, magnet it. Friends will text us sentences – some intending to be on a magnet, some not. Also..we are 90’s kids so we grew up watching the same films and tv shows.. Fin’s always liked cutting up bits of paper so is ‘loving it sick’. Sheena loves a collage and putting on an American accent to quote Clueless, Girls, Empire Records etc. It’s a pretty ‘endless possibilities’ thang we have going on so we won’t get bored.
What inspires you the most?
Anything that makes us laugh and the fact that others do too.. it’s always a pretty great moment laughing with strangers.
Name some of your most favourite local artists and designers.
Hmmm…. the dude that sells his artwork outside Myer..his rendition of ‘The Scream’ is fab. I think he’s progressed to gift cards now. Recently found out about these guys.. ‘White Moose Design’ they have the best stationary and gift ideas and share the same sense of humour, they make stamps which make you wish there was more paperwork these days instead of emails and floppy disk notepads (floppy disks have been forgotten about…do they even still work)? Sah vintage. Also ‘Things By Bean’ are so fun. They make gift cards that whenever I pick one up I read it out loud because I can’t seem to read anything comical without vocalising it.
What are your ultimate dreams for Unfazed & Confuzed?
Take over the world, pretty standard questions really. Just like Pinky and the Brain
