About Design Means Business

‘Design Means Business’ is an opportunity to listen, learn and be inspired by key design experts from multinational, national and local companies, design agencies and practitioners. 

The aim is to help you understand the true value of design and how it can make a difference to your business, giving you a creative and competitive edge.

Held at the magnificent Sage Gateshead, with spectacular views of NewcastleGateshead’s iconic quayside, each day promises to cover a broad aspect of design topics with interactive Master Classes and Workshops and inspiring keynote speakers.

Each element of the programme aims to engage and enhance your learning experience, no matter what level of design experience you have.


Speakers confirmed:

Influenced from the Design Network North’s successful Rise & Design event programme, you can choose from a variety of Workshops and Master classes:

  • Fostering Creativity
  • Customer Focussed Design
  • Product design to access new markets
  • Branding
  • The Design Process and many more...

Who should attend?
Throughout each day, there will be opportunities to meet, discuss and generate business with other delegates from across all types of businesses through structured and informal networking activities.

This conference should be of interest to all businesses, but particularly those interested in learning more about new product and service development, innovation, branding, communication, marketing and manufacturing, as well as linking designers with potential clients.

These two days will allow you to take away and practice newly learned skills and techniques which you can begin to apply to your business, proving that design means business.

Design Network North

Design Network North supports innovative companies, helping them to utilise high quality design skills and processes.

We accomplish this by offering specialised product design, industrial design and new product development support.

Good design is the key to future competitiveness. At a time when product quality standards are universally high and costs have been driven relentlessly downward, design and improved functionality have become the most important factors in the marketplace.

Intended to enhance regional companies’ ability to employ high-quality design, skills and processes, Design Network North works closely with other regional, national and international design projects, and helps those without access to the relevant design skills, achieve their aspirations for growth. Design Network North also holds regular networking events, 'Rise & Design', and delivers onsite Design Performance Workshops to embed good design within your business.

The Northern Design Centre will form a regional focal point for use of design by North East England’s businesses and service providers. Throughout each year, the design centre will feature work not just from local product designers but examples from all areas of design.

Funded by Gateshead Council and the European Regional Development Fund, the network is co-ordinated by RTC North Ltd in Sunderland.
