Each year hundreds of designers graduate at Dutch design schools. They all can't wait to kickstart their career. But pretty much all of them have in common that they have no experience with the social and business sides of the design field. BNO takes the leap together with these designers to guide them through the first years after graduating. YA! offers information, knowledge, skills, a network and a stage so that they can develop themselves into a true professional.
During Dutch Design Week we organize a big exhibition together with the graduates. They are involved in every part of organising the event, from building the exhibition materials, to creating the visual identity and calling the speakers for the Evening Sessions.
Here you can find a complete overview of the graduates that participated in our exhibition + evening sessions in Club-C at Sectie-C.
In the Dude october issue we published the YA Special 2018, in which a team of former Dudes selected their 30 favourite graduation projects.
The YA Evening Sessions
Every night, during DDW, we organised evening sessions with big names from the design world. You can find these events below.
