Design Ventura is the Design Museum’s flagship design and enterprise competition for secondary school students in years 9, 10 and 11. Over 13,000 students from 265 across the UK and beyond are registered to take part in 2018, the ninth year of the competition.
The young people are challenged to work in teams design a new product for the Design Museum Shop, responding to a detailed brief. The winning team will work with creative professionals to develop and manufacture their idea and will see it on sale in the Design Museum Shop, with all profits donated to a charity of their choice.
Ella has been invited to help chose the top ten Student teams for Design Ventura this year. The shortlisting involves choosing the top ten ideas from submitted entries and these teams will then be invited to pitch their ideas to a panel of expert judges at the Design Museum in December.
The project is supported by industry experts from the creative industries and business and offers students the chance to develop creative, design thinking, enterprise and transferrable employability skills.
Here’s this year’s brief for the Students given by the lovely Donna Wilson.
