New Designers - part 1 highlights

I was delighted to be a member of the judging panel for the BDC New Designer of the Year 2007. As a regular attendee of the show I was well aware that the standard just gets better year on year. It was a daunting task particularly because the prize holds not only financial gain and also business support and guidance to launch this designer’s career.

On Wednesday after painstaking deliberation we finally managed to decide almost unanimously on our Business Design Centre New Designer of the Year and Runner up. After a well deserved cocktail in the evening we watched Boris Johnston MP officially open the show with a hilarious off the cuff speech. Congratulations to all the designers for an excellent show and special to well done and 'hat's off' to the departments at the University of Westminster who in spite of a devastating fire the weekend before, managed to pull out all the stops to present at New Designers!
