Industry partners

Industry Partners

Billy Blue has strong industry networks so our students get real-world experience before they graduate. All qualifications are industry endorsed and students graduate with strong links to the Australian creative organisations.

When interviewing for positions in the Creative Department at MTV, I have found Billy Blue graduates to be a cut above the rest. With a broad and useful skill set, clear and thorough portfolios and a high level of creative flair, graduates are exceptionally well prepared to enter the industry. Kate Davitt, Creative Services Manager, MTV Networks Australia.

Key Staff

College history

Billy Blue College of Design was born as a tiny design school set up by a small agency to train young creatives to work on client projects. In the first intake, four people were expected to apply - but instead 66 people turned up! And so was born the Billy Blue legend (now owned by Think Education) that has launched the careers of many of Australia’s top designers.
