Design Plus

We’re a design-based initiative at Brunel University London, that develops and promotes collaboration between business and universities with an emphasis on knowledge exchange. 

Design + has been leading events, facilitating projects and matchmaking people with a shared interest in the economic value of design since 2004. We work with individuals with great design ideas, start-ups, small to medium enterprises (SMEs), charities and large multinationals from all geographic regions to provide applied design support for product and service innovation.

Design + is an innovative scheme which enables businesses to collaborate with our pioneering researchers or work with our students on their Final Year Project
