Design consultants, Baxter and Bailey
Designival is one of the UK's biggest and most established design festivals.
Taking place on Friday July 18 2014, as part of the International Festival for Business, the event attracts some of the highest profile and most recognised national and international designers.
Since launching in 2008, Designival has become one of the UK's essential diary dates for agency owners, directors and creatives with over 500 delegates from across the UK.
We take our lead from inspirational speakers, and worked alongside key industry partners at the Design Business Association (DBA) and D&AD to create an incredible networking opportunity, where ambitious creatives and leading figures from the industry can meet, learn and debate in a unique environment.
The day will be packed with keynotes from icons of the industry, a design themed breakfast, masterclasses, portfolio surgeries, open studio tours across the city and an after party to end all after parties at Camp and Furnace.

Liverpool L1 0BY
Camp and Furnace is a new kind of venue. Nestled within the Baltic Triangle of Liverpool, this refreshing, exciting and laid-back venue has already proved to be massive hit with the people of Liverpool.
Formerly three industrial spaces, a furnace, a blade factory and a coach shed - now as Camp and Furnace, this ultimate event space hosts an eatery, a bar, a music venue, a boutique caravan hotel, an indoor festival park and a photographic studio, to name only but a few. In short we know you'll agree Camp and Furnace is the best place to host the North's biggest design festival.
