What is Design by Nature?

*Not just an awards scheme. Work on real living briefs, which challenge you to tackle environmental issues affecting our day-to-day livesGain access to Hubbub’s key insights, tips and the opportunity to bring your idea to life.

How can I take part?

Design By Nature is open to students from universities across the UK, studying any creative discipline. We have 3 living briefs waiting to be tackled and are accepting submissions from now until the deadline 25th May 2020. You can enter the awards solo or in a collaboration (up to 3).   

This is a great opportunity to work on real briefs which focus on some of the most pressing environmental issues we face today. Work submitted will be carefully judged by the Hubbub team. All ideas should inspire sustainable behaviour, but also be designed with sustainability in mind. 

We’ll give recognition to the:

  • Master storytellers who use the best visual and written language communication.

  • Creative innovators who come up with the most innovative and practical solutions.

  • Wild cards who come up with unconventional, surprising ideas that wow us.

What if my idea is successful? 

If you’ve entered Design By Nature and if your idea is successful, the journey won’t end there. Hubbub are keen to support upcoming creatives and help bring successful ideas to life with the potential to offer receive seed funding or pilot ideas in a Hubbub campaign, with full credit going to the student. Stand-out ideas will be celebrated on social media and have the chance to be featured in a zine or a Design By Nature exhibition.
