Design Week’s guide to the 2014 degree shows

Once again it’s the time of year when fresh-faced young designers from across the UK’s art schools prepare to show what they’ve been working on throughout the academic year at their degree shows.

With so many colleges out there, we’ve drawn together a list of whens, wheres and websites where you can find out more details about how to discover the design talent of the future.

For the bigger, London-based group shows of new designers, please see our preview of Free Range, currently running at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, east London. There’s also D&AD’s east London-based New Blood in July, which you can find out more about here dandad.org; and New Designers in nearby Islington, for which you can find dates and information at newdesigners.com.

We’ll be getting out and about to see as much as we can, so keep an eye on our Facebook page, facebook.com/DWDesignWeek, for pictures of our highlights from the shows.

If there’s anything we’ve missed please comment below and email Emily.gosling@centaur.co.uk, and we’ll add the details in.
