The Gifted? team!
Hosted at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, the dates for this year's New Designers exhibition will be between the 24th June and the 4th July.
The Gifted? Competition runs in parallel during these two weeks providing us with a fantastic platform to promote the competition and the Tigerprint business.
We have been proud supporters of New Designers for 17 years now, and during these years have met with many wonderful designers and seen the great work they produce, but it also allows us to share with graduates our vision, and all the we do too.
Currently we employ 22 people from previous New Designers and work with many more freelance designers discovered at this superb event.

You may enter a single brief, select two, or work on all three, whatever takes your fancy!
The competition is an exciting opportunity to work on a commercial brief. Show off your unique style and personality and create a collection based one or all of the briefs.
Across all 3 briefs, Tigerprint would like to see your creative skills and strengths, whether it’s product design, surface pattern, textiles, graphic design, ceramics or fashion design. The competition is open to all creative disciplines.
Consider future trends, colour palettes and commercial appeal. Think about what styles are hot on the catwalk and look at food packaging, interior and lifestyle trends. Think outside the box; we want to see your interpretation of our business!
