We don’t just do design. We start conversations with like-minded and diverse groups of people, whether they have a shared interest in design, technology or inspiring social good.

Portable has hosted a number of events over the past decade: film festivals, panel talks, various launches and conferences. Join us at one of our upcoming events.


Design for Justice

Design and law do not typically meet, but we think they are perfect for each other. For the past several years we have been working on projects across the justice sector, driven by a desire to use design and technology to make it more accessible, equitable and efficient for all users.

The New Infrastructure

The infrastructure around which we build our lives is essential to maintaining our quality of life. Yet in major cities around the world, infrastructure is ageing and is rapidly becoming outdated. We’re starting the conversation and we’re ready to make the change.

Innovating In Government

Making change within government is not easy. Our latest report explores the drivers of government innovation within Australia. We’re sharing our insights by launching it across Australian cities. 

Redesigning Work

As part of our continuing exploration of how technology is reshaping our world, we are publishing a new report: Redesigning Work. 

The report provides an in-depth look at how technology is shaping the future of work, and what we can do to prepare.

Data Driven Design

Over the past year we’ve been working to articulate a new Design Thinking practice that places data in the centre of the design experience. We’re finally unveiling this approach and travelling around Australia to present our Data Driven Design insights, lessons and processes.
