As 2015 comes to a close, we look back at the progress we’ve made.

GDFS is officially the largest event ever hosted at Scotland’s National Centre for Design & Architecture, The Lighthouse and the entire 2015 programme sold out! We’ve welcomed an astounding 20,000+ participants and visitors to our past two festivals, with 30% of participants travelling from around the world to take part. 40 students & graduates have been offered work placements in the creative industry across Scotland with 4 now in full time employment (that we know of) through the Live 2-Day Project and we’ve received 6000+ submissions from 83+ countries to our International Poster Competition.

Thank you again to everyone who’s been involved so far and stay tuned for updates! Films by Wavlab coming soon!
