2015 – Here we go!


After the success of GDFS 2014, we are delighted to release our 2015 programme, which this year will be hosted predominantly in Glasgow’s national centre for Design and Architecture, The Lighthouse.

We are proud to welcome a whole array of new partners, sponsors, workshop leaders, mentors, judges and speakers into the GDFS family.

We have also added two brand new events to the programme; the Conference & Panel Discussion, facilitated by Rob Alderson, and a talks evening in partnership with Design in Action, featuring high profile speakers from international organisations, focusing more broadly on the impact of design on businesses.

Alongside the International Poster Competition, we are pleased to launch a new open call competition, offering the opportunity for somebody to paint a mural at Kelvinbridge Subway station in Glasgow as part of GDFS 2015.

We’re hyped for the new programme and look forward to seeing you there!
