It can be a sketch, an abstract shape, a graphic, anything you like – as long as it reflects the way design makes you feel, and looks fabulous hanging off the arms of our visitors! Create your design on a tote bag, a piece of paper, or even an old napkin, send it to us @MayDesignSeries using #MayDesignerBag by Friday 25th April – and you might be seeing your design at the May Design Series!

The judging panel will include our Web Editor Ola Bednarczuk and Ab Rogers of Ab Rogers Design. The winner will be announced on Wednesday 30th April.

Let's get creative!






For a bit of inspiration, here's our very own design guru, Web Editor Ola Bednarczuk's take on the May Design Series bag!

"I wanted to feature one of our exhibitor products in my design, so I chose the PP Mobler circle chair - I love the dramatic profile it creates!"

Brand Director of the May Design Series, Andy Vaughan showed us his,

"There is just so much going on at May Design Series, it is such a dynamic and innovative show, that I felt only words would do it justice."

Rob and Clare Scarlett from Scarlett Design UK show us theirs, telling us,

"I produced this collaboration with my printed pattern designer wife Clare.  We went for simple and geometric, with a hint of a hidden chair in there."

The Technical bit:

Happy Designing!
