I spent the first 2 days of this week working with my fellow DJCAD Designers setting up our stand for New Designers 2013. Today brought the first wave of design enthisiasts through our doors, after a very succesful private view last night. My little black book of industry contacts is quickly filling up and my gift of the gab is finally paying off! The MAKE LIGHT TRIO has so far intrigued the likes of: London gallerys; bars; a director; window dressers for a large American retail company; design schools; further education; private collectors and a furniture store owner. In short, the future looks bright!
Not only does New Designers provide graduates with fantastic networking opportunities, but they host talks and information sessions from industry proffesionals to provide the exhibitors with extremely valuable advice!
So far my experience has been fruitful and the other girls are receiving great feedback too! Keep up to date with twitter (@rachaeldeas) and instagram (redeas) for live updates from the show!
