It is with heavy heart that we say goodbye to long time friend and collaborator Alan 'Max' Mansell. A talented aboriginal artist, Max worked with a variety of health organisations to create culturally appropriate branding and illustrations.
Max was the creator of the ADAC shield, the Footsteps - Road To Recovery logo and the main image used with the NIDAC18 Conference.
He has work on display in both the National Gallery and the National Museum, and hadhis own amazing take on traditional dot art featured around the world.(he even painted a rainbow serpent on the side of a pub in Ireland).
He will be missed by all of us.
