New Designers is the UK's most important graduate design exhibition, full of innovation and fresh thinking. It takes place over two weeks, with each Part focusing on a different set of design disciplines and featuring its own Awards Programme.
The show sees over 3,000 of the most talented, newly graduated designers from the UK's leading universities come together to exhibit in one spectacular venue - the Business Design Centre, London.
New Designers keeps its doors open late on Thursday 26 June (Part 1) and Thursday 03 July (Part 2) enabling you to come along after work and explore the best of emerging design talent whilst enjoying special events.
Absolut hosts a guest industry panel discussing Transformation and Design in Part 1 and the Design Council present their Future Pioneers discovered at New Designers in Part 2.
All events are free to attend with a New Designers ticket.
Every year, a series of prestigious, industry supported Awards are presented to the most innovative graduates at New Designers.
They form a very important part of the show and are proven to have a direct and personal impact on the career of the winners, see success stories.
‘Winning the Award has really helped launch my career. I have had amazing job offers from companies worldwide and I have even been given the opportunity to design my own collection for a British store. By gaining the title of award winner I was immediately drawn to people's attention and given great publicity that I wouldn't have received otherwise.'

New Designers is arguably the most important design event in the UK for ensuring the life cycle of the design industry continues and thrives.
The careers and fresh thinking it generates and delivers year on year is hard matched elsewhere, and the breadth, diversity and calibre of visitors out ranks any other emerging design event.
