For many students, July marks the end of the academic year, but for the Product Designers at Sussex and many more design graduates across the UK, the last week of June and the first week of July means one thing – the New Designers exhibition.
Hailed as the most prestigious graduate design show in the UK, New Designers is situated in the Business Design Centre in Islington London and covers a multitude of disciplines, from furniture design to fashion and of course, Product Design. Featuring over 3,000 glowing graduate designers, the show marks the end of university life for many, and the start of their journey into the design world. Because of this, many companies choose to attend New Designers to cherry pick the very best graduates – just last year three Product Design graduates were offered jobs on the spot!
And this is the week – today is the last day of the setup of the very prominent 35sqm University of Sussex Product Design stand (we are showing you a sneaky peek here!), and as of tomorrow, press and public will have the chance to see the culmination of all that hard work.
Keep your eyes peeled here for a full show review next week…
