Eloise Cleary

Industrial Designer
Vert Design


Eloise embarked on her industrial design journey after graduating from the University of Technology Sydney with Honours in Product Design in 2018. Her journey was marked by winning the Design Institute Australia’s Product Design NSW/ACT Graduate of the Year in 2019. Eloise’s Honours thesis revealed a passion for inclusive design practices within a product context. Through her collaboration with marginalised groups, Eloise realised the transformative power of design in improving accessibility for all.

As a DIA NSW council member since 2021, Eloise collaborates with interdisciplinary design leaders to drive initiatives promoting sustainable design practices and educational workshops. Eloise’s commitment to education extends to tutoring students from first year to honours at UTS, as well as serving as a guest lecturer and member of an external advisory board for Western Sydney Uni.

Presently at Vert Design, Eloise champions tailored design processes, guiding clients from project conception to completion while advocating for design outcomes that foster positive societal and environmental impacts.
