Design communication lectures and workshops
Benefits for design students and educators
Our guest lectures and workshops teach Landscape Architecture, Architecture, Interior Architecture and Urban Design students the value of good communication in the design process.
Design students learn how to share their ideas, convey months of work in minutes, manage their nerves and process feedback. These skills help students and educators get the most out of the design studio experience.
A flexible approach to learning
Our one hour lectures and one hour practical workshops are designed to complement your existing program.
We work with universities and colleges to tailor content to meet the needs of students and regularly teach the following modules:
Me and my design
First year or introductory level
Self-awareness and authenticity, basic presentation skills and responding to feedback.
Communicating your design
All undergraduate levels
Structuring a presentation, justifying ideas, using narrative and appropriate language.
Communicating your final project
Final year and masters level
How to present a major project and prepare for practice.
Experienced educators delivering real value
Our experience in both design and communication means we create true engagement and deliver relevant, actionable lessons.

Here’s what our clients say:
“Saneia's lecture, 'Me and My Design', provided valuable insight into the world of design and communication within the design process. Saneia quickly established a connection with her audience of first year students as she shared her own personal experiences of presenting to a group, and followed up with key communication principles to help students prepare for their own design presentations. An engaging and interactive lecture which left students feeling inspired and better equipped for challenges ahead.”Laura Pyne, First year Course Convenor, Landscape Architecture Program UNSW
“Your presentation this morning really hit the right mark for the 4th years, at this critical stage in their final preparations. And you modelled all the aspects of preparing for their final reviews with your own presentation. Thank you, so much!”Associate Professor Linda Corkery, Landscape Architecture, Faculty of the Built Environment, UNSW
