For those who haven’t heard of Frost*collective, tell us who you are and what you do.
We are a strategic creative agency dedicated to designing a better world. We have dedicated specialist teams across branding, place and environments.
Why did Frost*collective decide to partner with Shillington for the Diversity in Design Scholarship?
Shillington is a globally recognised design educator, producing brilliant designers across the world. The decision to partner with them was a no brainer.
We are in business to make the world a better place through design. Every culture, background, gender, sexual orientation etc brings a different approach and outlook to design and problem solving which is essential in designing successful solutions for clients and the world.
Design has the power to transform, lives, businesses and the planet. A career in design is rewarding, full of exciting projects and visionary clients. The opportunity to kick start your career in design can be difficult and expensive, but this scholarship is a fantastic opportunity for those who maybe wouldn’t have had the chance to do so. We are proud to be a part of the program in Sydney.
What are you looking for in applications?
Someone who lives by our values—thoughtful, innovative, determined, entrepreneurial, effective.
What can the winner expect from the five mentorship sessions?
A genuine approach from our leadership team within the collective who have been in your shoes before. Clear, constructive career advice.
Anything else you’d like to share?
Design, if harnessed correctly has the power to transform not just business, but the way that we live and the planet. Everything around us has been designed. As designers, we solve the problems of the world with empathy and creativity.
A career in design isn’t a job, being a designer is a way of life.
Huge thanks to Frost*collective for partnering with us, and sharing their thoughts.
