New Fangled has finished for 2012. We will be back!
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.Nicole
