European Design Festival

New connections and changing perspectives!

More than 500 designers, illustrators, design magazines and other creatives from all over Europe came to Oslo in June to experience 3 days of fun and inspiring events.

Each year, the European Design Festival presents an arena for the most prevalent trends and themes currently impacting European design and illustration. The festival programme this year was about new connections - about how change and truly great design often evolve at intersections of seemingly incompatible perspectives or mindsets. Sometimes just playing around with things that normally do not go together is what opens a whole new world of possibilities. At other times the powerful impact of conflicting points of view will communicate a new idea or expose the need for supported change and social responsibility. This year’s program and events were all designed from a desire to challenge and change perspectives - for creatives from all over Europe to meet and expand their personal and professional networks while being inspired to think new thoughts. By bringing together new people and new perspectives we had a ton of fun and created new connections that we hope will make a difference.

Thank you all for joining us in Oslo!
