Good Design Ambassadors

The Good Design Ambassadors program was established to recognise pioneers of good design and consists of a broad spectrum of leading designers, architects, business leaders and changemakers who share our aspirational vision for design. The Good Design Ambassador is an honorary title given to a select group of individuals in our design community who have made, and continue to make, a positive impact on the design profession both in Australia and internationally. They include past Good Design Awards Jury members, Good Design Award recipients and distinguished keynote speakers from our events.

The core purpose of Good Design Ambassador is to act as an advocate for ‘good design’ and actively promote and support Good Design Australia’s vision and mission as we strive for a better, more inclusive and more sustainable world – through design.

The Good Design Ambassadors’ directory is updated annually and presented in no particular order. For more information on how to join our Good Design Ambassador program, please contact us.
