About Us

The Bristol Design Festival is an annual celebration of creativity design and innovation talent from Bristol and the South West.

Through a unique and exciting programme of exhibitions, seminars, workshops and competitions we aim to give Bristol and the South West the recognition it deserves as a hub of creative excellence in the UK. The Bristol Design Festival encourages the participation of members of the public and designers from all levels, not just design professionals and businesses.

Uniquely, the Bristol Design Festival exhibits design work from local schools, university students and graduates along side creative profesionals and companies. The festival has a much wider appeal than most, as it is not restricted to just one type of design but aims to celebrate all aspects of the creative spectrum including:

Industrial & Product Design, Graphic Design, The Crafts, Digital Design, Animation, Architecture, Sculpture, Fashion, Furniture, Illustration, Graffiti and moreā€¦
