Rub shoulders with people working in industry and potentially meet your new boss at Speed Meet.
Organised by the Design Institute of Australia (SA Branch), the night involves students talking directly with people working in industry in rounds, giving students an opportunity to talk to as many people as possible.
Bring a portfolio of your work to show members of the design community and get feedback from those who work in industry.
It’s not just for students; established designers will have a chance to meet students and graduates who are engaged, enthusiastic and proactive in their pursuits of being part of the design industry.
Event curator Richelle Martin said new clients and jobs are made by chatting to fellow industry members at such events.
“It’s how people in the design industry network and secure work,” she said.
Alexander Lotersztain of Derlot, available exclusively through Stylecraft, will be guest speaker on the night. Named one of 100 most influential top designer worldwide in &fork by Phaidon, his work has featured in international exhibitions with Designers Block London, Tokyo, Milano, New York, San Francisco, Berlin and Moscow. One of his products is part of the design Collection at the Pompidou Museum in Paris.
