Designers Small Talk

  • Cafe 31 31 North Street Belfast, BT1 1NA (map)

Join for a cup of coffee from 12.30pm, with the discussion starting at 1pm. Spaces are limited so please book in advance here

There’s never been a better time to be a designer. Emerging economies, the public sector and major business brands are starting to recognise the difference that design and designers make to improving products and services.

As part of ID2015 and Belfast Design Week the Northern Ireland Design Alliance are hosting a lunchtime session with 4 designers in conversation, exploring trends and changes in the design sector. Our speakers all come from different parts of Ireland (north and south) and different perspectives creatively; yet they share a dialogue around issues affecting education, business, creative networks, how we change as an industry and the importance of design in our future economy. Please join us and participate in the discussion.
