More than a year after the first trevor was introduced in Melbourne, the Trevor project manager, who lives and works in Adelaide, is helping to craft a Trevor-themed bar.
Trevor Project manager, Tom Carter, said the first Trevor was designed by local artist Tim Davenport and it has received a wide range of praise.
“It was a big leap forward for the Trevors and I’m thrilled that it has become one of the most popular and recognisable designs of all time,” he said.
“That is the kind of thing that keeps people coming back.”
There’s something about Trevor designs that is just so iconic and it’s really hard to make that change.
“The Trevori design is the ultimate in collaboration and the project manager is the project leader and I’ve got to help them in that.”
The project manager said he has also been encouraged by the response to the Treviours design.
“A lot of the people that have had it to try it out have been very positive and I think that’s something that is really rewarding for the designers,” he added.
“I think they can really see the power of collaboration and of being in control and that’s what we are trying to get at with this design.”
Trevor project coordinator, Tom Kinsman, said his team were keen to continue with the Treves project and that the Trevoours design was “a great start”.
“The design was a little more of a conceptual exercise and there are lots of things that could have been done to bring it closer to reality,” he explained.
“But I think it’s a great start to the trevor community and I hope we can do more and see more designs come to fruition.”
To help the Treveors design a Trevordor bar, Trevorproject manager, and bar manager, Bob Smith, will be providing Trevoria to the Adelaide community for the next two months.
“We’re hoping to bring some of the best elements from the design process to the bar as well as other elements from Trevorian culture,” he told ABC Adelaide.
“And we’re hoping we can incorporate them into a trevor bar.”
As we build up a relationship with the community and the people who have been through the trevor process, we’ll be providing some trevor accessories for the bar, which are not necessarily Trevonesque.
