This September, our talented graduates will be kick starting their creative career by showcasing their work at the internationally renowned London Design Fair, 21 - 24 September 2017.
Graduates will be joined at the stall by sponsors, artisan distillers Plymouth Gin, collectively showcasing the high standard of design and craftsmanship being created in the South West.
Our graduates will showcase their work in a bespoke exhibition stand, printed in Fab Lab Plymouth.
