Since New Designers launched thirty years ago it’s become a one stop shop for spotting the best of the UK’s emerging talent. Design graduates from the UK’s best art and design courses flock to Islington’s Business Design Centre to exhibit their stand-out projects, from textiles, fashion and jewellery to furniture, product and graphic design. The event is split into two different exhibitions over the fortnight, visit Part 1 for textiles and fashion, jewellery and ceramics, and Part 2 for furniture, product design, illustration and motion arts.

Not only is it an excellent place to recruit and commission new talent, but the professional development-focused talks programme, which has become a mainstay of the New Designers experience, offers tonnes of insight to newly graduated creatives wanting advice on how to score their dream job. The New Designers One Year On showcase, exhibition tours, Thursday Lates and Creative Saturdays events mean that there’s plenty for the layperson to enjoy too.
