Design Jam – Design Skills Bootcamp

5 October, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 6 October, 2021 @ 4:00 pm

Design Jam - Design Skills Bootcamp
Join the design movement in a 2-day immersive learning experience covering all things design thinking, service design, and experience design

Design Jam with a side of impact.

We don’t believe in normal or boring. We believe learning happens best when you’re surrounded by interesting people and applying the learning in a meaningful way.

Over your 2-day Design Jam journey, you’ll apply the design concepts and tools we explore to a real-life business problem for local organisations doing good in the world.

At the end of Design Jam, you’ll get to pitch back your ideas, prototypes and validation – and your idea might even get picked up for implementation!

Your Design Jam ticket includes two fast-paced and interactive days of design learning, access to a huge set of resources and canvasses you can use in your own work as an innovator, and healthy morning tea ☕️ lunch🍴 and afternoon tea 🍰 to keep you going throughout the program!

Our Secret Recipe.
