Plan your visit to New Designers 2011

Every July, over 3,500 newly graduated designers, representing the top 200 UK design courses, come together at New Designers to meet industry employers, media, trend predictors and a design hungry public.

Creatives Inc will be there to show whats possible with fresh talent and how Retail can benefit from these beautiful minds. We have only visited New Designers and found some amazingcreatives in the past but believe that being here will not only inspire us, but allow us to create wider partnerships with both industry and artists.

This year new Designers have partnered with Arts Thread, an organisation close to our hearts. Arts Thread provides a comprehensive online directory for new and emerging design talent.  For graduates, it offers invaluable advice and information for those dedicated to developing their career.
