BROOKE GLENNEN – CLASS OF 2013
Brooke Glennen is the founder of By Brooke Creative, a bespoke giftware range where she adopts handmade techniques to create meaningful keepsakes for children and parents alike.
Using creative writing, storytelling, illustration, graphic design and styling, Brooke has created a designer range focusing on childhood mindfulness and conscious parenting.
Her brand is inspired by her own nurtured childhood and fond memories of feeling comfortable and cosy. Brooke wants children to develop lasting connections with their parents and to engage in settling experiences like storytelling and mindfulness.
Brooke’s business venture began evolving in 2016 during her final year of a Bachelor of Design specialising in Styling & Creative Direction at the Whitehouse Institute of Design. The development of her signature project “My Mindfulness Series” led Brooke to create My Mindful Child and Hanging Pods. She was then encouraged to introduce her designs onto the market. Brooke did just that and now has a number of new stockists based in Sydney and is making her way into Melbourne stores too. Her designs can be found locally at at The Complete Garden and Kasoobi.
Brooke is about to reach an exciting milestone taking up a commission to create an exclusive illustration piece for a luxury baby boutique in the USA . “I’m very excited to see what other global opportunities that might lead to,” Brooke said.
When asked about her journey to becoming a prominent designer, Brooke said “opportunities like this one didn’t just fall in my lap, I was very devoted to my university studies and embraced new challenges. I never understood the saying “you only get out what you put in” until recently, after realising how many new skills I have learnt and am putting to practice. It’s always scary to meet new people and put yourself out there but amazing things happen when you get out of your comfort zone”.
Brooke’s designs are a testament to her hard work and dedication. Throughout her studies Brooke received several accolades including:
- HSC Graphics Award 2013
- 1st Year Styling & Creative Direction Designer of the Year in 2014
- 2nd Year Styling & Creative Direction Student of the Year in 2015
- 3rd Year Styling & Creative Direction Designer of the Year in 2016
You may have seen Brooke’s work featured recently in House & Garden Magazine, The Sunday Age and Home Beautiful Creative Collection.

Jemima has opened a podiatry practice in Kyabram after completing a Bachelor of Health Science and a Masters of Podiatry Practice at La Trobe University in Bendigo.
As a Rochester local, Jemima was baffled at the lack of podiatry services in Kyabram. She wants to help serve a rural community, just like the one she grew up in. Interviewed in the Kyabram Free Press Jemima said “Health in rural areas is vitally important and I’m excited to do what I can to help out. A lot of people put up with foot pain because they aren’t sure where to go or the services aren’t available. I hope I can make life easier for people in town”.
Jemima’s goal is to be accessible to the community without referrals required. Kyabram Podiatry can be found at 93 Albion St.
