Designing for the Future Awards
The Designing for the Future Competition is a project run by The Future Perfect Company and the University of Brighton, which aims to encourage students to consider the challenges of ageing. Now in its fifth year, alumni from the project have gone on to win numerous awards for innovation and design, taken up residencies at the Design Museum and the Crafts Council to develop their work further and some of the first participants are now in the process of taking their designs to market. Run initially with students from Design & Craft, we were delighted this year to invite students from the product design programme to join the project. Next year we are hoping to expand the project again to include fashion and textiles students.
The winners of Designing for the Future receive a package of support, promotion and mentoring from Philippa Aldrich of The Future Perfect Company as well as opportunities to showcase their work at conferences and exhibitions. The winner will also be invited to join the judging panel for Designing for the Future at Collyers Sixth Form College. The prize was presented by Professor Anne Boddington the Dean of the Faculty.
