To kick off the Northern Design Festival 2016, we’ll be welcoming some of the UK’s leading creative talent in the fields of architecture, design, graphics and illustration for our inaugural design symposium, Design NOW.
Curated by Design Event and supported by the Northern Design Centre, the Design NOW symposium will address questions including ‘what value can good design bring?’ and ‘how can we nurture creativity?’.
Speakers include the winners of the 2015 Turner Prize, designer and architect collective Assemble; Israel born graphic designer, illustrator and artist Noma Bar; and graphic designer, author and creative director Angus Hyland. The symposium will be moderated by graphic designer, writer and Senior Tutor in Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art, Adrian Shaughnessy.
The Design NOW symposium takes place on Friday 7 October, 10.30am to 4.30pm at the Northern Design Centre in Gateshead.
