MA students have spent a week presenting their graphic design projects to 275,000 visitors from all over the world at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, from 22 to 30 October.

Known for placing emphasis on the development of young talent, Dutch Design Week displays the work and ideas of more than 2,500 designers to industry peers, journalists, bloggers and scouts from around the world – making it the biggest design event in Northern Europe.

"It was pleasing to learn that people at Dutch Design Week got interested in my work and some expressed a desire to purchase it." Victor Kovalenko, MA Graphic Design student

Having been specially invited following successful applications, MA Graphic Design students spent the week participating in exhibitions, lectures, prize ceremonies, networking events, debates and festivities.

“Having our work selected for Dutch Design Week gave us real experience in preparing and hanging a show,” says Aurelia Bergs, MA Graphic Design student.

“It gave us all a taste of design in the real world and shows us how our work fits in with other areas of design, technology, fashion and social innovation.”

The work presented at the exhibition was part of the Graphic Collective – a series of MA Graphic Design final projects which aims to communicate the identity of a space, create an experience and connect people to places.

“Dutch Design Week offers our students the experience of exhibiting their work alongside established designers, organisations and other educational institutes,” explains Amanda Sleet, Programme Leader, MA Graphic Design.

“It offers them a rich design environment to network within, to develop new partnerships and offers a spring board into the jobs market or further education.”

Students studying MA Graphic Design at Middlesex can expect to explore the ever-changing landscape of graphic design, build critical understanding and develop insightful design solutions.
