Designers provide simple and elegant solutions to complex problems. They reflect current trends and they challenge the way we think and see ourselves. They balance creativity with cost-effective and innovative construction. They design our clothes, our public spaces, our furniture and our wine labels. They are often employed as ‘embedded creatives’, and they provide design solutions for every industry sector. Australian design is an exhilarating place to be, and you’ll be amazed at the career choices available to you.
