DesignUp Conf gets listed amongst the world’s “most exciting design events”

We found ourselves in great company, after our 2nd Edition

Burning Man, LA Design Festival, Design Indaba – some of our favourite (and long running creative/design events) got a mention in the list of “the World’s most exciting Design events of 2018” No surprises there. Just that after our second edition we were in that list.

At the end of the 2017 Conference, we were surprised, and delighted, to find ourselves there. This piece was originally written by Anne Quito for Quartz and published on Nov 9th, 2018. Read the original article here.

Khoi Vinh, Former Design Director at NewYork Times, and now Principal Designer, Adobe nominated us. Here’s what he had to say:

“Last November I attended Design Up in Bangalore, India. I’m not sure I can attend again this year but I had such a great time last year that I would be happy to go again. They are doing a great job of helping to catalyze the growing design community in India.

We hope we lived up to the tag in 2018 and hope to see you back with us in 2019 in Bangalore.
