Welcome to The Creative Exchange Website

The Creative Exchange is Scotland’s network for public-sector Graphic Designers, Photographers and associated creative professionals. Since 1998 it has played a key role in promoting in-house graphic design and photography across a wide range of public sector organisations, with members attending from local authorities, hospitals, museums and galleries, universities and colleges, charities etc. Meetings are held four times a year to exchange ideas and discuss a variety of issues, developing ideas, exchanging information and gaining inspiration from each other, their work, and invited creative industry speakers. It aims to be of maximum value in contributing to its members’ continuing professional development (CPD).
