Muji has extended the deadline for entries to its product design competition to 30 May. The competition marks the 15th anniversary of the ‘no brand goods’ chain, and is being promoted in Muji stores through a poster by Japanese designer Ikko Tanaka. Open to anyone in the UK, Japan and Hong Kong, entrants must design a new Muji product which reflects the Muji concept and will be of global appeal. Total prize money is 33 820, with a first prize of 7800, ‘so it’s definitely in the interests of UK-based designers to apply,’ says Muji’s director of operations Ewan Douglas.
The organisation has received £65,000 of Government funding to get more women who have fallen off the creative career ladder, because of maternity or carers’ leave, back into mid-to-senior-level roles.
