Labelled as ‘The UK’s most important exhibition for emerging design‘, New Designers is an annual event that delivers new generations of brilliant creative individuals. Emerging designers showcase their talent in the hope to be recruited, gain valuable exposure through the attending media, connect with other designers, experience exhibiting at a trade show and talking to potential clients and so much more.

New Designers 2018 returns to the Business Design Centre, London N1 this summer to showcase over 3,000 design graduates covering a breadth of design disciplines, including ceramics, crafts and furniture across two weeks with Part 1 27 – 30  June – 01 July and Part 2 04 – 07 July.

A visit to the show provides a unique opportunity to commission, recruit, be inspired and buy directly from the future of British design whilst supporting the pipeline of new talent into the UK’s creative industries. Part 1 includes textiles, jewellery, ceramics and contemporary crafts whilst Part 2 showcases furniture and product design, illustration and motion arts.

The show is split into two parts, each covering different design disciplines. Make It In Design will be exhibiting in Part 1 of the show (27 – 30 June, 2018) which focuses on textiles and fashion, ceramics and glass, contemporary design crafts, costume design, jewellery and precious metalwork.
