Future Pioneers 2014

Design Council

Following on from the great success of Future Pioneers 2013, The Design Council is once again partnering with New Designers, the UK's largest graduate show, to choose around five graduates - out of the 1400 exhibiting - to be our Future Pioneers 2014.  

Future Pioneers is an initiative to celebrate and nurture graduate designers who are designing to improve lives.  The selected students will be rewarded with a programme of promotion and support, including a chance to exhibit their work during London Design Festival, and mentoring from an esteemed judging panel. 

New Designers takes place over two weeks at the Business Design Centre in London, with each week focusing on a different set of design disciplines. Design Council will be at Part 2 which runs from 2nd  - 5th July.

The work of our shortlisted designers will be on display from 3rd July - you’ll spot the Future Pioneers swing tags on their stands – and the winners’ announcement and celebration will take place later that evening at 6pm in The Talks Theatre.

The judging panel including Sebastian Bergne and Morag Myerscough will be there discussing what makes a Future Pioneer. There will also be sweet treats from the Meringue Girls, top tunes from designer-by-day/DJ-by-night Fred Butler, and photo-booth fun will transform the Talks Theatre into a centre for celebration, as Design Council crowns their 2014 Future Pioneers.

As a friend of Design Council they'd like to share a special discount code, inviting you to join the winners’ announcement and celebration.

Discounted tickets can be purchased online at newdesigners.comwith the code NDDESIGNCOUNCIL for just £9* instead of the usual £14.50 on the door.

(*£1.50 booking fee applies per ticket purchased in advance, the offer expires on 23rd June 2014.)
