Dutch Design Week..., where to begin? Amidst this dazzling abundance of design, designers and activities it is hard to find your way.

We suggest you to drop by our starting point annex meeting point. Here you will meet the newest generation of Dutch designers. You'll get to know their work and learn what goes on in their minds, what triggers their interest, and what sparkles their ambitions. How do they take those first steps of their professional career? Where do they begin?

Start your day with their stories at our BNO morning sessions. Join the launch party of our Dude design graduate special. Hang out with the designers. Hang on to their lips, hover over their work and have some fun. Get inspired, get informed. Follow our Dude Design Graduates Route, starting from here. And do come back for another chat, drink and laugh. We're here all week!

Organized by Beroepsorganisatie Nederlandse Ontwerpers (BNO)

Dude, Dutch Designers Magazine is published by the Association of Dutch Designers (BNO). It is the only multidisciplinary design magazine in the Netherlands. Dude does not talk about design alone. It also writes about designers, about their way of thinking and working, about the design process and the added value of design. Dude is a quarterly: the autumn edition will be launched at Dutch Design Week and contains the annual design graduates special featuring the thirty best graduation projects, the Dude Graduates.

YA, Young Alumni is a new initiative initiated by BNO. YA is a bottom-up movement of the design alumni, recently graduated. After a first, successful pop-up exhibition event in Groningen, the movement continues its way to The Hague, finally traveling to Eindhoven during Dutch Design Week. The ultimate goal is to conquer the Netherlands, with more and more young design professionals joining the community and events.

BNO is the professional association for designers and design agencies in the Netherlands. BNO supports designers in their professional practice, by investing in public information, regulation, research and education. BNO represents the collective interests of the design community and contributes to improving the design infrastructure in the Netherlands and Europe.
