skysdesign is a social enterprise creative agency business owned and operated by SCH. However, our history is a bit messy.
We were brought into the world in 2010 by St Kilda Youth Service (SKYS) to deliver a Certificate 3 in Graphic Design as part of their alternative education programs. The training was delivered to young people who were at risk of, or had already, disengaged from education. It was hoped that a passion for design would develop and the young people would move into employment. Finding commercial clients whose projects could be worked on by students would provide the experience.
In mid 2014 the Certificate 3 training program was closed and in late 2014, SKYS merged with Melbourne City Mission . This merger resulted in skysdesign needing a new home.
We decided that the business had the potential to do great design work for our core clients of charities and NFPs AND to generate an additional income source for a social purpose organisation. The search was on to find a home.
Between October and December 2014 and we kissed a lot of frogs and met a couple of possible princes, but things were looking grim.
Then in December 2014, with an eye for innovation and a desire to keep a social enterprise operating, SCH reached out. In early 2015, we commenced working with SCH and have been working to return positive income to SCH.
We have developed a reputation for delivering high quality design services including:
- Print design
- WordPress website design and design for custom built websites
- Design of digital assets for website and social media
- Animation and video production
These services are at the core of what we do for our social purpose clients and through the networks we’ve developed we can provide much more. Just ask us…we’ll happily tell you what we can and cannot do.
