To all the industrial designers out there, do yourself a favour and get your prototype in to Launch Pad 2018. Not only is there $10,000 at stake, but yearlong mentorship and the chance to put your prototype into production.
March 6th, 2018
We’ve announced the incredibly talented jury, we’ve shown you some of the previous winners, and shared how the future of the industry is increasingly becoming collegiate – but now it’s down to you to enter.
You have to get your skates on though. Time is your enemy and it’s running out fast.
Launch Pad has been an important fixture in the industry since 2004, over the last 15 years the program has changed and adapted, and for 2018 it’s bigger than ever.
Quite simply, Launch Pad helps launch the careers of product designers – all you need is an amazing design prototype.
Entries close Monday 12 March.
