CHAMPIONING THE FUTURE OF DESIGN SINCE 1985
Join us from 28 June – 1 July & 5-8 July 2023 to champion and celebrate the future of design.
We believe that great design shapes the human experience. New Designers provides a unique platform for fresh design talent to connect with design educators, professionals and consumers, for creative exchange and collaboration.
WHAT WE OFFER
We provide two weeks of incredible design discovery. By breaking the boundaries between the different disciplines, an increasing number of collaborations and new opportunities come to light. You’ll discover new ideas, products, trends and talent.
New Designers is a platform for discourse and debate, from social, political and environmental influences and challenges to how we can use design to create a more sustainable future. Join us for the disruptive conversations taking place in June 2023.
HOW WE WORK
We want all our New Designers to succeed.
Our highly-acclaimed ND Awards programmes sees industry experts actively seeking out the very best design talents and rewarding them by offering prizes, mentorships and apprenticeships. Previous winners have gone on to forge successful careers with our awards supporters

WHAT OUR AUDIENCE HAS TO SAY
“It is an honour to be asked to open New Designers Part Two. Twenty-one years ago – almost to the day – I won an Innovation Award at New Designers and it launched my career. It is a show that is very close to my heart.” BETHAN GRAY – CELEBRATED HOMEWARE AND FURNITURE DESIGNER
“New Designers has heralded a number of great designers who are household names now, so if you want to see the stars of the future it’s a great place to come. It’s also a great place to get inspired by design ideas: there are very innovative and new great designs here that’ll hopefully see the light of day for the public to buy in the future.” JOE FERRY, CREATIVE DIRECTOR IN DESIGN – EXPERIENCE
