Launch

After last year’s success, we’re excited to announce Launch 2024.

As the name suggests, we’re hoping to kickstart the career of a young design graduate by offering a 12 month internship in our Melbourne studio. If you’re a highly motivated, team-orientated industrial designer or mechanical engineer who is keen to jump out of university into the professional world keep an eye on this website. We’ll be posting more information over the coming weeks. If you can’t wait to get started and want to make your application stand out from the rest, get yourself ready to submit a short video (save in MP4 format, 30 seconds max) that sums you up. This can have you in it or not, up to you, but be sure to give it some personality. We want to get to know you as a person as well as a designer.

Applications open for submission from Feb 1 to Feb 29 2024.
