our mission

We aim to make industry leader’s expertise accessible to our community.

Since we started our journey 3 years ago as Sydney Designers Meetup,  our goal had always been to create an inclusive community of designers. Now in 2023, we’re pumped to take our community to the next level.


Bringing digital experience & branding leaders to share their knowledge with the design community. We host one design & data-related talk each month. Come, learn and make new connections.


Our workshops are designed to gain practical knowledge from the design leaders. Spend a day in a fast-paced learning environment and make new connections with other Australia based designers.
