Refine your creative thinking processes with this free, online Design Thinking workshop.

Learn the techniques design professionals use every day to develop new concepts. Our industry-leading academics and alumni will guide you through the Design Thinking process. Next, they'll help you to implement it as you undertake your own designs in response to a brief – just like you would working in the industry!

Come along and create something new for your portfolio. There’s even a chance to win a mentoring session with one of our inspiring alumni, and a 12 month subscription to your favourite industry publication. We’ll give you the low-down on how, at the event.

Become an idea generation machine.

Who are the awesome alumni?

Bianca Holderness

Bianca will be working on the Photography brief with you and let us tell you, she really knows her stuff. After graduating from Billy Blue in 2013, she’s really padded out her resume, working with brands and bands galore. As a live music aficionado, she had a dream to shoot at Splendour in the Grass. Just a few years later, she was their official photographer. How’s that for success?

Olivia Gatt

Olivia will be working on the Communication Design brief with you, an area she knows plenty about. After graduating in 2015 with a Bachelor of Communication Design, Olivia worked full time for Yoke, a design studio in Collingwood. She made the connection as an intern while she was studying here at Billy Blue. In 2017, she applied for Clemenger BBDO, and just two years later, was promoted to Art Director. She loves the advertising industry and exciting world of digital and interactive design, taking a simple yet sophisticated approach.

Lulu Cavanaugh

Lulu will be working on the Interior Design brief with you, drawing on her five years of experience since graduation. While she’s lived in Manchester, Melbourne and Perth, it’s Newcastle currently giving her creative inspiration. There she owns her very own business; describing her style as classic, minimal, refined, with Danish and French influences. She’s been featured here, there and everywhere and has even collaborated with Sheridan Australia.

Kevin Huang

Kevin will be working on the Gaming brief with you, as a recent graduate of Billy Blue College of Design. After studying the Bachelor of Creative Technology (Game Art), he’s now a 2D/3D generalist specialising in VFX. Kevin got his start as an intern in 2015 at planet55, working on an animated TV show. He moved to Blowfish studios Sydney as a 3D artist working on console and VR games in 2016, then worked at Gameloft studio Brisbane as a VFX artist for mobile games… stay tuned for his unreleased project.
