ICFF Schools

Each year, the ICFF invites top design schools to showcase the best design work of its students.

2020 and 2021 have been challenging years in particular for designers who graduated and started their professional lives. ICFF and WantedDesign are joining forces to offer the students the perfect platform and be part of our next events at the Javits Center in November 2021. Students (2020 and 2021 graduates) will be able to present their work, meet professionals and network.

Each school is responsible to select the designers who will present a prototype.

Depending on the space, each school can present between 6 to 12 candidates.

  • 5′ X 10′ – 50 SQ FT / $3,550 / 6 STUDENTS MAX
  • 5′ X 20′ – 100 SQ FT / $7,100 / 12 STUDENTS MAX

Space includes: white walls and basic lighting + dedicated marketing promotion (June-November)

ICFF and WantedDesign will organize a “speed dating” time for the students to introduce themselves and present their project to professionals, in partnership with Be Original Americas.

The school will be responsible of coordinating the students’ prototype shipping, space layout and buildout. The students will also be part of the Launch Pad Jury review led by Jaime Derringer of Design Milk.
