This year, no less than 26 talents will take part in the 10-month professionalisation process, including four design duos. An overview of the participating studios can be found here.
Every month, these Drivers will attend joint master classes in the areas of profiling, communication, financing, business operations and presentation. In addition, the designers also commit to personal development with an ABN AMRO coach. Starting in April, they will be working in Bureau DDD on a collective presentation at Dutch Design Week, including an exhibition, the ‘Drivers Pitch Event’ and a publication.
