The Design in Action project is officially launching the week beginning 13th May with events all over Scotland. The launch event in Dundee will encompass the Design in Action themes of design talent, business innovation and networking and will give attendees the opportunity to hear more about this exciting project.

We are delighted to announce that Wayne Hemingway, co-founder of Red or Dead and HemingwayDesign, is coming to Dundee to give a lecture.

He will talk about his illustrious career as an award-winning fashion designer and, more recently, as an award-winning social and housing designer whose enviable client list ranges from Coca-Cola, Sainsbury’s and Sky TV to Sony and McDonald’s.

Wayne received an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday List in 2006, is a Professor in the Built Environment department at Northumbria University, a Doctor of Design at Wolverhampton, Lancaster and Stafford Universities and a Fellow of Blackburn College.

We are also celebrating local design talent and the work of Design in Action so far with an exhibition in the Dalhousie Foyer and a drinks reception.
