The Best Art and Design Conferences of 2020

We’ve brought together the best conferences and events for designers across digital, UX, branding, graphics, advertising and more from around the UK – and a few major festivals from overseas you might want to consider booking a trip to.

Events featured here will inspire you, conferences which help build your skills and facilitate meeting like-minded people to build a support network around yourself.

These are events that are mighty in size and local to the UK or worth travelling far and beyond to, plus we’ve also included some regular events you can attend without having to break the bank.

Look out soon for more tips on this year’s must-do design and creativity conferences and festivals. Also, keep checking back to see if events are still running – with the Coronavirus running rampant, cancellations are snowballing, with the latest victim being the Adobe Summit in May.

The stalwart of Adobe MAX looks safe to go ahead as it’s due near year’s end, but conferences running this winter, spring and early summer are all at risk. That could include the new European version of MAX listed below.

  7. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
