Northern Design Festival 2016

Northern Design Festival 2016

The Northern Design Festival 2016 takes place in Newcastle and Gateshead from 7 to 16 October, exploring the theme of ‘where do ideas come from?’.

Through a programme of events, exhibitions, talks and workshops we will discover how ideas evolve into the furniture, products, posters, brands and buildings which surround us every day.

To kick off the festival, 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.

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.

Take a look at the full programme for the 2016 Northern Design Festival.
