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.
