With the one-year program YA, we helped graduate designers to kick-start their careers. YA offered information, knowledge, skills, a network and a stage so that the students could develop themselves into true professionals.
During Dutch Design Week we organised a big exhibition together with the graduates. They were involved in every part of the event: from building the exhibition materials, to creating the visual identity and contacting speakers for the Evening Sessions. Have a look at the impression of the 2018 and 2019 edition below.

Dude YA Special
The October edition of our former magazine Dude would feature the YA Special! We asked design graduates to submit their graduation project, after which a team of former 'Dudes' would select their favorite projects.
