ND AWARDS CEREMONY

Congratulations to all ND AWARD winners and runners up – watch the ND AWARDS CEREMONY below and discover the very best design talent from Universities around the country.

We are proud to be working with so many industry partners for the 2020 ND AWARDS, whose invaluable support, champions new design thinking and innovation.

This year the ND AWARDS programme featured environmentally conscious briefs, responding to the ‘new norm’ and much more. The CLASS OF ND 2020 were stretched and challenged in their design process and we were proud to present a programme that encompassed every corner of the design industry.

Thank you to our keynote speaker, Luke Pearson, one of the directors and founding partners of Pearson Lloyd, who shared his advice for emerging designers about their next steps and how to begin a design career.

NEW DESIGNER OF THE YEAR AWARD

We are delighted to announce that the prestigious New Designer of the Year Award is being brought to you by Creative Conscience. The two briefs they supplied invited designers from any discipline to consider issues of both social and environmental impact.

In addition to this The Business Design Centre, long term supporter of New Designers, has also returned to help us in the provision of this award.
