Information on Global Design Graduate Show 2023 in collaboration with Gucci 

This proactive initiative has been created for all creative students graduating this year in all art & design categories such as visual communication, film, fashion, textiles, interior, architecture, visual arts, contemporary craft, industrial & product design and more!

Following the success of the inaugural Global Design Graduate Show in 2020, Arts Thread has for the fourth year running, teamed up with Gucci, who, as in 2020, will be the exclusive partner for the Global Design Graduate Show 2023. Through our relationship with Gucci, this year Google Arts & Culture have agreed to support the initiative and as you will see below they have already created an area on their site where we are showcasing all of our past success stories and we have our own virtual gallery:

Last year’s initiative was a huge success where we surpassed the previous year’s achievement of 5489 entries representing 117 countries from 439 higher education institutions.  Hundreds have gained employment or launched their own brands thanks to this proactive initiative – making it the only global showcase of graduating artists & designers worldwide!

This year’s initiative is now open to all art & design students graduating from September 2022 to August 2023 (both undergraduate and postgraduate) in any related creative discipline, located anywhere in the world. 


Over 170 respected industry experts from brands such as Apple, Adidas, Conran Studio, Design Museum, Gucci, Herman Miller, Informa, Kering Group, Levi’s, Nike, Pentland Group, Philips, United Nations, Wieden + Kennedy, WGSN, Zaha Hadid, and many more will judge this initiative. 

Over the coming months we will inform you with more details. Please encourage all of your students due to graduate this year to upload their end of your projects before August 31st, so that they will not miss out on the world’s largest online art & design undergrad/postgrad initiative this year!
