How do you want to make a difference?

Design the world around you

Design is part of our everyday lives: as a designer you have the potential to use your creativity to make a difference, whatever your chosen discipline. Design is also a major industry, a pathway to innovative thinking and a vibrant culture of global practitioners.

There are many ways you can make an impact in this field. You might work for an established agency or in the creative services department of a larger organisation. However, you can also use your entrepreneurial skills to establish a business or develop your own product. Going down this path means you can set your own hours and focus on your interests.

International exposure is a critical component of design practice. So too is a keen eye for the intricacies of human interactions. The best designers have a passion for designing and making new work, whether it’s a piece of ready-to-wear fashion or a successful mobile app.

"All goods and services are designed. The urge to design – to consider a situation, imagine a better situation, and act to create that improved situation – goes back to our pre-human ancestors. Making tools helped us to become what we are – design helped to make us human."

Ken Friedman and Erik Stolterman, Editors, Design Thinking, Design Theory Series
