Aston Inspired is the annual design exhibition put on by the design graduates of Aston University in Birmingham, United Kingdom. The students showcase their concepts and findings during the 1-day exhibit, from aesthetic and functional prototypes, to research papers and live demos.
There are a number of different categories of projects that you can visit during the exhibit, with various talks and moments organised by our cohort of final year designs graduates.
The design show and marketing materials (brochures, posters, social accounts and websites) are created by a team of final year students, working with members of staff, thus reflecting the students' design skills, creativity and knowledge.
