WA Branch Overview

The WA Branch of the Design Institute of Australia is the voice of professional design in Western Australia.

Our vision is to raise awareness and strengthen the profile of the design profession within the broader community.

We aim to establish WA as an epicentre of design innovation and creativity and to this end we actively work with community, government, business, industry and education sectors.

Our education programs include a Student Mixer, helping students forge essential relationships with leading WA design practitioners, along with a Student Portfolio Review, assisting emerging designers launch their careers.

The annual DIA WA Awards program, now in its fourteenth year encourages leadership and innovation in imaginative and sustainable design practice and has become an integral part of the Western Australian design landscape.

We believe in the power and potential of design and encourage all Western Australians to share in our vision.
