Design Collective

Swinburne’s largest network of creative students


What we do

The Swinburne Design Collective brings together students from all creative disciplines. Our 3 focus areas are: Creating fun social events; Skills development workshops and providing fundamental design skills; and connecting our members with industry.

Social Events

We provide opportinities for students to socialise and meet new, like-minded people in a safe and fun environment.

Industry Networking

We support students to gain connections with industry professionals before they finish their degree, giving them an advantage after their time at uni comes to an end.

Skills Development

We provide opportunities for students to grow their skills outside the classroom, providing hands on workshops in a variety of design fields and techniques to further student’s knowledge of software, creative and production processes.

About Us

Who We Are

Swinburne Design Collective is a great network for all creative students at Swinburne to meet other like minded students and grow their network while at uni. We aim to bring together Swinburne students and staff from all areas of design. We organise social activities, skills workshops and opportunities to work with Swinburne Staff and Students as well as get in touch with leading industry professionals. Some of our events include our regular Drink and Draws at the Hawthorn Hotel, free pizza get togethers, Adobe software workshops, design competitions, trivia nights, industry nights and much more! We have close connections with the School of Design who help us create specific events that will develop your skills and fuel your interests in designerly pursuits. Come along to our events to meet new people, learn new skills and have loads of fun with other designers!


Industry Night Recording!

Earlier this year in April we held an Industry Night event which saw four lovely industry guests Emma Fisher, Carlos patino, Steven Wang and Jasmin Hinss who share many years across a broad range of design disciplines.

Our guests shared a their journeys and advice and then we got into some questions asked by the audience to our panel, we recorded the audio to the event to share with you all!
