Join us after hours on 2 July & 9 July 2019 for Thursday Lates at New Designers – giving you the option to visit us and meet designers after-hours whilst enjoying an engaging programme of talks, tours and workshops.


2019's Thursday Late

#ND Reviews

Our design networking evenings are a chance to meet and hear directly from peers, within a friendly setting, to discuss ideas, debate industry concerns and present your portfolios for review. For the format, think speed dating, 10mins on each table to speak with the designer from each brand on that table, and then move around – giving you a relaxing and personable environment to discuss.

Across both weeks #ND Reviews 2019 was joined by 

Week 1: with with John Lewis & Future Icons

Week 2: with Sky Creative, KTN Health, KTN Transport, moo, pentland,

Design Nation Picks Tour

From Thursday to Saturday, both weeks, we were given a whistle-stop tour of the show by the Design Nation Team, sharing their insights into how they identify the best emerging design talents. On each day a different senior designer or staff member gave their opinions and showed visitors the most exciting and lively work. 


Rough Trade East returned for Thursday Lates to soundtrack our evening.
