The Design Council launched Spark 2018 at Kachette with a showcase event and award ceremony on the 12th September. The 10 Spark 2017 finalists showcased their award winning designs including glasses that help the visually impaired, a foldable bike helmet and a glass holder for wheelchairs.
Spark offers support and funding to develop new ideas and inventions into tangible products. The Spark programme offers a unique opportunity to connect with design industry experts to gain valuable knowledge and insights into all aspects of design, including product development, branding, manufacturing, marketing and business planning. Successful applicants will also receive between £15,000 to £200,000 to develop their ideas!
Submissions are open for Spark 2018. Find out more about this great initiative on the Design Council's website.
