New Designers
29 June to 9 July, UK

After a two-year hiatus caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, graduate design show New Designers makes its comeback this month.

This year's event, which began on 29 June, is divided into two parts and features exhibits by more than 2,500 emerging creative talents.

Visitors can expect to see the work of graduates from disciplines ranging from fashion and ceramics to furniture and industrial design. A mix of art, ceramics, graphic design, jewellery design, textiles and woodwork will also be on display.

Over eight days, the contributing graduates can also take part in a series of programmes that will allow them to network, explore career opportunities, watch talks and take part in various workshops.

The event, for which Dezeen is a media partner, also includes the New Designers Awards Programme that will see 35 prizes given to contributing graduates to boost their move into the industry.
