Late Night Design is a design industry event visiting a variety of local design studios and hearing the design journeys of some of the designers working within the studios to inspire and encourage innovation and entrepreneurship within the local design community.

The theme of our 2017 Design Thinking workshop is creating products and services to solve problems that refugees and asylum seekers living in Northern Ireland face. In teams we will begin by discovering the main issues faced; generate ideas and quickly prototype possible solutions. We will end the session with a 'Show & Tell' and feedback.
