About New Fangled

New Fangled, based on Student Designers' successful Business: Designed and MakLab's expertise in prototyping, is a workshop and showcase to help you develop your ideas and opportunities.

Scotland’s creative graduates are incredibly talented across a range of creative disciplines but often the first two years after graduation can be difficult and ideas and projects are lost.

New Fangled provides you with the skills and tools to successfully turn your ideas into reality!

The day was amazing. Learned so much, not just from the Student Designers team but from the other students that attended too. Feel as though I could be a lot more confident and informed now when starting a business. Would highly recommend this event to everyone who is interested in starting or learning more about business.

What's in it for me?

New Fangled has been designed to specifically benefit the graduated designer.

Here are just three of the benefits:

Learn the skills and techniques to develop your ideas into successful and sustainable businesses.

Meet leading members of the Scottish design industry to grow your network and gain work.

Meet and collaborate with likeminded designers who understand the ups and downs of self employment.
