be the first to see the very best graduate designers

After two years of being online we are thrilled to be coming together once again in real life to continue to champion the freshest design talents the country has to offer. 

We have three areas of rich content to appeal to our wide range of visitors;   ND EDUCATES, our talks and workshops programme which will be full of educational, inspirational and insightful sessions led by industry leaders; ND CONNECTS a dedicated area bringing together our graduates with key industry experts, and ND FUTURES  ,which looks to nurture the future design students and set them on their path in a design career. 

Of course, the central focus remains the graduate designers and the work being showcased by their universities. Attending New Designers allows you exclusive access to this wealth of talent and gives you the chance to see them before they were famous. 


We know how important it is for your business to remain at the forefront of the latest design trends, innovations and talents.  No other design event brings together such a wealth of graduate design future stars. New Designers allows you to stay ahead of your competitors by having a preview of the most innovative and talented designers the country has to offer. 


New Designers offers you the opportunity to research and invest in the products your business needs to keep you ahead of your competition.

Spot the emerging trends before they hit the mass market to ensure you continue to offer your customers the most on-trend products available. 


New Designers is the largest showcase of graduate designers in the country and offers an unrivalled opportunity for businesses to add such a high calibre of fresh designers to their talent pool. 

You will have the chance to engage with them about their future career in the industry and streamline your recruitment process.
