Design training program graduates hold “Edit: Objects Redesigned” Exhibit

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

The works of 15 young designers are showcased in the exhibit “Edit: Objects Redesigned.” The designers have successfully completed the first phase of the New Design Graduates Training (NDGT) program. 

The exhibit features popular pieces that the designers redesigned and introduce to prolong their durability and enhance their commercial viability. NDGT was developed by the Design Center of the Philippines, an agency attached to the Department of Trade and Industry.

 A track under Design Center’s Design Competency Development Program, it serves as an avenue for young designers to enhance their skills and competencies through intensive training conducted by recognized program mentors. It is a 16-month training program divided into three phases.
