Remember when you were studying and your design briefs were so open you could well and truly let your imagination fly? It was no doubt all part and parcel for why you fell in love with design – a heady mix of collaboration, creative thinking and turning ideas into a reality.
Well, listen up, because we have a project that is all about those very same things. This is your opportunity to really set your design skills loose, to get away from your desk and dive right into the creative process. We’re calling for expressions of interest for collaborators to create installations with our exhibitors that will form part of what makes Saturday Indesign an unmissable design event. Bring your own bag full of ideas or bring your work pals along for the ride.
Let us introduce you to Saturday Indesign – a one-day design showcase full of walking trails, workshops and everything in-between. Saturday Indesign is all about fostering relationships between designers and suppliers. Within each carefully-selected showroom will be a collaboratively-designed activation (this is where you come in). These immersive, experiential installations have the power to make moments of wonder and surprise. Taking over Melbourne on 22 June, it’s all about engaging, mingling and learning at Saturday Indesign.
