Studio Inquiry

Is design becoming SAME:SAME - are designers just following 'trends' & not challenging the status quo?

In this studio you will discover the importance of developing your own creative style and brand as a design practitioner in today's world. You will dive deep, explore and challenge your own creative pathway to forge THE CREATIVE YOU - your point of difference and the possible impact you could have on the world around you. If you inspire to be award wining art director to a disruptive illustrator, or even an entrepreneur t-shirt designer, this studio will help you harness your own unique 'creative style' and make a difference.
The studio will explore design trends, creative processes and personalities, locally and internationally, discovering how the thinking and creative output has made a difference in their field. Group discussion, inspiring videos, presentations and 'guest' appearances will all form a part of the engagement platform.
