UID19 | Design Talks and Degree Show is the annual celebration of the rich talent being developed at the Umeå Institute of Design. The event will include student and company presentations, keynotes delivered by leading designers, a design exhibition as well as a myriad of networking opportunities. In recent years the show has become a hotspot in the design community where major international companies, design professionals and the media gather in search of trends in the field. Representatives from all over the world travel to Umeå to find inspiration, to follow up or establish collaborations and to recruit young designers.

Our graduating students from product-, interaction- and transportation design are at this very moment getting ready to express their journeys leading up to show. Join us to experience two very special days packed with insights about where design is going, presented by the next generation of designer that wants to take it there.
