Brighton University - Product Design - New Designers Exhibition 2019
We’re the University of Brighton’s, 2019 Product Design Final Years! We're a tight-knit family of passionate designers striving to make huge changes to global social issues. But we need your help! For our ideas to really make a difference, we're displaying them at the 2019 New Designers Exhibition!
New Designers showcases the best students work to well over 15,000 design-minded consumers and industry professionals at the London Business Centre this July. With this wealth of talent and opportunities, New Designers offers us the chance to open industry doors as well as enabling our products to really make a difference to the world.
As the graduating class of 2019, we have worked extremely hard for the last four years growing and developing as designers and are now working just as hard to tackle some of the world's most complex and problematic societal issues.
ThE BPD family - Who are we?
"When you realise the world has been made up by people no different to you and me, you realise you can change it, you can influence it, and you can build your own things that other people can use."
- Steve Jobs.
We’re a close group of sketchers, tinkerers, makers, visionaries and entrepreneurs. With more than 40 students in our year group who question why things are like they are, whether things can be made better, and whether they are even needed at all.
Our values of People, Pride, Place and Purpose are woven into everything we do, everything we create and everything we stand for. Coming from such a vibrant and inspiring city, and with pride in our purpose and vision. We are dedicated to tackling some of the worlds most complex and problematic societal issues. From single-use plastics, stress within the workplace and antisocial behaviour to isolation, health and wellbeing.
Our target goal for funding is £4000, in order to cover the cost to design, build, print and transport our New Designers stand to the 2019 exhibition, and to cover any additional expenses related to the stand.
Here’s a quick breakdown of where your pounds will be going:
£2000 materials, £600 transport, £1000 printing, £400 fulfilment
As for fulfilment, we aim to get all your rewards to you before 3rd of July, 2019, this gives us time to create both the awards we will send out to you, as well as the ones on our stand, and also within our booklet as explained within the rewards packages.

We Need You!
Without your help, it won't be possible to attend the event. We have spent the past few months creating wonderful products and it would be a massive shame to not be able to display them.
Also, let's not forget the life changing design ideas we are presenting, and all the good they will bring to people if we get a chance to take them further.
