Supporting the design community
We mean it when we say that our mission is to celebrate, support, and grow the design community. Putting that into practice are several ways in which we support design community.
We work with a selection of our supporting partners to fund meetups and events for the design community
We can promote your design community event to our audience and partner audience, helping to build your event profile
Free tickets or discounts
We can offer exclusive discounts and tickets for you to promote your event or reward your attendees
Books and merchandise
We are able to provide books from our cohort of presenters that you can use to promote your event
Access to our network
We’ve built a rich community of presenters, participants, and partners that we’re happy to help connect you to
There are a few bits and pieces you should know about our support and what we’d expect from you
We’re open to anyone and everyone asking for support, and especially welcome events that promote broad, diverse, and different topics
All we ask for in return is support for Design Outlook as we promote our events throughout the year
We’ve worked with some of our partners to extend their network to the design community and include you in their newsletters, social media, and any other way they can help. They do this for free.
In order for us to support you, you will need to demonstrate to us how you have considered:
Sustainability: including waste reduction, energy emissions, and supplier choices
Diversity: including gender, age, race, and industry
Accessibility and inclusion: including Auslan translators, venue accessibility, and the cost of access to your event
Don’t be scared by this. It’s easy and we can work with you on it.
After you submit your request for support we’ll be in touch to set up a meeting to find out more about you and your event.
We’ll then meet with our partners to discuss the support needed, and come back to you with a plan.
We will almost always say yes to support in some form or another.
Yes. There will be some conditions around what the funding is used for, which we will go into detail when we’re discussing it with you.
Simply fill in the form to the right and tell us about your meetup, event, or other design community activity. We’ll then get in touch to discuss how we can help.
