The Design Salon started off in 2014 as collaboration between myself, Blick Shared Studios and Maven as a way to bring together the design community in Northern Ireland and collaborate on exciting new design projects.    It very quickly expanded to include other designers and some exciting projects emerged from it including The Another Belfast Map & Belfast Design Week.  

The name "The Design Salon" harks back to a time when creatives and scientists met in coffeehouses and salons in the 18th century to discuss important ideas of the age - we are of course much more informal than this!  We hope the Design Salon continues to contribute to the local design scene and to bring new ideas to life!

We currently have over 200 designers and design enthusiasts in The Design Salon.
