The Billy Blue Experience:

Photo of College of Design in Sydney & BrisbaneDon’t expect to relax when you walk through our doors. There is always something happening and students are constantly challenged and inspired by our staff, their classmates and the environment that they design, live and study in. It’s more like the real world of a design studio than a classroom. This is why Billy Blue grads are so sought after by industry. That’s the Billy Blue experience.

At Billy Blue we don’t work in a theoretical vacuum. Our qualifications, whether vocational courses or higher education bachelor degrees, are born out of our original mission of ‘design education for designers by designers.’ At Billy Blue we proudly produce ‘thinkers who can do’.

We are always looking for unique individuals to nurture and mentor. Working in design is much more than just making pictures. It’s a demanding and exhilarating life-choice where we work with clients and project objectives to create potent and memorable design outcomes. It’s much more than art. It’s about creating the opportunity to design no matter the discipline. We are always moving towards the industry as it exists, responding to the social and commercial reality of the time.

The exterior walls of Billy Blue show how much we love design. This could be the only College in the world to win an award at the New York Type Directors Club for signage design (created by Billy Blue Creative). We’ve also won awards for the graphics on our classroom doors, some of which were designed by our own students. The popular interior graffiti wall is a work-in-progress, as it is a public space for unstructured creative expression.
