In 1987, Billy Blue Creative decided to open a tiny design school to train people who would eventually work in the studio. A crowd of about four was expected. Sixty-six people enrolled and there was a long waiting list.
In essence, the school was created by industry for industry and we’ve been building on that concept ever since. All of the teachers at Billy Blue are industry professionals – we promote professional teaching rather than teaching professionals and our students benefit. Over the years, some of the college’s best graduates have worked at the consultancy itself and Billy Blue Creative staff members have, in turn, taught at the school. It’s a unique and fun relationship.
