We know there are way better ways to design kick ass campaigns, interventions and communication strategies that make doing good a good idea! That's why we run this fun-filled evening event that challenges designers and non-designers to battle it out with their creative problem-solving skills.

In our experience, a beer doesn't hurt when you're trying to get the creative... hence Drink + Design Night! Want to flex your creativity for social good? Then this is for you. You can come with a team of challenge-ready designers/thinkers/doers, or you can come stag and we'll pop you into a team when you arrive!

What is the experience like? Think pub-trivia meets TV design show and you've got the idea! Each event has a theme (past examples include TALKING TRASH and BUSTING THE FEAR FACTOR) that focuses on combating real-world messy issues, through fun, collaborative brainstorming, and beers!

What exactly goes down? Drink & Design is a team based event with three rounds. It starts with a drink (totally optional though, you can absolutely participate without drinking). Then Round 1, the quickfire round, begins as the adjudicator quizzes the audience on common knowledge and facts on the topic. In Round 2, teams secretly answer questions in a pub trivia quiz format and in Round 3 they finally battle out the design challenge. In that third and final round, teams have 45 minutes to solve the set design challenge and then have to pitch their brilliant solutions to the judges while being egged on by a room full of eager creative thinkers.
