Relay Studio

Relay Design Events is an Adelaide not-for-profit dedicated to uncovering how the local design industry really works.

We're designers from a variety of Adelaide studios by day, that band together by night. We work closely with local professionals to support design students, graduates and young professionals transition into Adelaide’s design industry.

Relay hosts interactive and educational events that aim to make transparent taboo industry topics such as budgeting, project management, client relationships and production, to better inform our audience of realistic practices.

Relay Studio

Relay Studio is a space for emerging designers to build current industry-relevant experience, grow networks, increase knowledge of professional practice and foster confidence and enthusiasm for great design. A stepping stone to make transitioning into the design industry as smooth as possible.

As a participant, you will work in collaboration with your fellow designers and practising design experts in a studio environment. You’ll approach a design problem directly from a real-life client, interpret the brief and engage with them along the way, managing a project from conception to final outcome.

You will be supported by industry professionals who will examine the details of the design and management process, and will also provide valuable feedback as you go.

You’ll make mistakes, and you’ll learn how to fix them quickly. You’ll form enduring relationships and design connections with fellow participants as well as with industry, resulting in an ongoing creative support network which you can call upon as you journey into the SA design community.

Experience along the way.
