The inaugural Cheltenham Design Festival (CDF) is set to bring together an impressive roll call of some of our most innovative and forward thinking designers and creatives from a wide range of disciplines who will broadly discuss the question ‘Who is designing the future?’
The event will take place at Cheltenham's Parabola Arts Centre on the 20th-22nd April and will feature a series of inspiring and thought-provoking talks and debates. Participating creative thinkers will cover such diverse areas as education, engineering, entertainment, business and technology as well as design, architecture and well being.
Creatives participating at CDF include Stefan Sagmeister (graphic designer), MarkChampkins (Science Museum's Inventor-in-Residence), Paul Priestman (industrial/productdesigner), Charles Landry (Urban theorist/writer), Stephen Bayley (design commentator/author), Matthew Humphries (Morgan's Chief Designer) and Simon Waterfall (digital designer).
