Driving Dutch Design is looking for talented driven designers/start-ups. Do you, together with other talented designers who are also a bit further in their career, want to push the boundaries of your entrepreneurship? Are you open to getting serious about your creative business? Would you like to work together with others towards Dutch Design Week 2022 during an intensive programme? And are you prepared to invest at least one day a week in this? Then sign up now!

Application and selection

The deadline to apply is Wednesday 17 November 2021. Besides your contact details, we will ask you for your motivation and work. Furthermore, you agree to the terms and conditions of participation. Katja Lucas (DDF) and Patrick Aarts Sen (BNO) will carefully go through all the applications and make a pre-selection. If you are included, we will invite you for an interview on 1 or 2 December.

After getting to know each other, we will make our final selection. If you have applied, you will hear from us no later than 10 December whether you can start in 2022. In February 2022, the new group of Drivers will be publicly announced. You will work in bureau DDD as an agency towards the ultimate ‘Drivers Event’ during DDW22.


Participants pay €375. If you work together, you pay €200 per extra person. These amounts are exclusive of VAT. Drivers are also responsible for travel and out-of-pocket expenses and the contribution to Bureau DDD to prepare for DDW.
