 The Project

   

Designed by: Indesign Group

Why we love it: To celebrate 10 years of Saturday in Design, The Project goes back to the people, asking key members of the Australian design community to shape The Project brief. The result is: 

ACTIVATE ENVIRONMENTS: create the fourth dimension, bring forms and space to life, take action and revive, invigorate and awaken.

And with over 20 collaborations taking place at Saturday in Design, The Project promises to be better than ever!
