If you’ve been looking for a way to break into the design industry, this might be the perfect opportunity.
We know that the routes into the design world are not open to everyone; that the industry is not as diverse as the nation and that there is work to be done on getting a good representation of the country into creative fields.
So we are excited to be partnering with Livingetc for an inclusivity initiative, opening doors to everyone. If you have a bright idea for a piece of furniture, some lighting or textiles, now is the chance to have it created, sold and be paid fairly for your work by us.
In this exclusive competition, our three winners will get the unique opportunity to:
- Work with Habitat to turn their idea into a real product sold in store and online.
- Be mentored by both Livingetc and Habitat and gain a unique work opportunity to work in the design industry.
- Be paid fairly for their work.
- Take the first steps into what could be the start of an exciting new career.
We’re looking to champion new talent: people who have never had their work put into production before and who have the potential to become the next big stars of our industry. Three winners will get to work closely with Habitat and develop their submissions into real-life designs. They will see their pieces make it into store, be offered mentorship by Livingetc, Habitat and relevant designers from our networks and have this unique opportunity to learn and develop…all while being paid an industry standard fee for their idea.
We want to help redress the balance by making design a more democratic field, rewarding ideas over privilege and ensuring that this is truly open to all. Good luck!
