Are you?

Struggling to take the first step into leading a design team?

Wanting to help your team build a better design practice?

Uncertain how to structure a high peforming design team?

Put off by generic management training courses?

The transition from designer to manager is hard.


There’s plenty of training courses for improving your design skills and mountains of generic management material, but very little to support designers who want to become leaders.


Design leaders studio provides design leadership training for designers who are considering or have recently transitioned, from a practising designer into a manager role.
