Kickstarting New Designers

Gray’s Design students don’t tend to relax once the Degree Show is hung, they have other things on their minds as they prepare to make the annual trip to New Designers, the national exhibition for graduating designers in a variety of disciplines.

This usually requires fundraising, from the traditional bake sale through and guess how many sweets in the jar? to the strategy being employed by this year stage 4 students who are running a Kickstarter Campaign to get them to New Designers.

For this they are looking for your help and support, with great rewards for helping them make their fundraising goal, for more details go to the campaigns page, now lets help them on the journey!



Talented Textile and Fashion honours year students at Gray’s School of Art need to raise money to exhibit at New Designers 2014!

Gray’s School of Art @ New Designers 2014

17 students across the Fashion and Textile Design courses at Gray’s School of Art are beginning their challenge of fundraising a whopping £5000 to enable them to exhibit their honours year work at New Designers in London this June.

‘Taking place over two weeks, with eight distinct design zones and two prestigious Awards Evenings, New Designers is the UK’s most important graduate design exhibition, full of innovation and fresh thinking. The show sees over 3,500 of the most talented, newly graduated designers from the UK’s leading universities.’

Exhibiting at this exciting event will be a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our portfolios of work created during our honours year study in Aberdeen to a far wider audience from ND in London. It will be a fantastic end to our time at Gray’s and it will no doubt provide an array of fantastic opportunities for us to gain work experience, professional feedback and may even lead to freelance work or employment.

So far we have kicked off our project with a fundraising band night which proved to be a great success and we have lots more activities planned to generate the funds we need to make Gray’s School of Art @ New Designers 2014 happen.

Our first challenge is to raise the money for the deposit for our stand at the show so we are currently hoping that our kickstarter project can help us to raise £1000 which will allow us to secure our place!

Help us make our project happen 🙂

Yours gratefully,

Textiles & Fashion @ Gray’s School of Art
