Design Event was established in 2005 to support designers across the Northern region, especially graduates and those at the early-mid stages of their careers we also provide a platform for the public to engage with good design through our bi-annual Design Event Festival which will next be held in October 2013.
Our mission is: To promote and support designers and makers working in the North of England. To raise standards and provide regional and national platforms to showcase the high quality design being produced, alongside national and international work; positioning the North of England as a hot bed of design talent, creating opportunities for designers and the public to engage with high quality design.
Design Event is a community interest company limited by guarantee and is not for profit. Since 2005 the company’s grass roots activities have substantially expanded with activity across 3 strands of delivery including promoting design, supporting designers and showcasing design from the North of England.
