The Melbourne Design Market was founded by Kathy Demos in 2004. The first of its kind, it was conceived as a forum for the launch of designs onto the market by bringing together designers and consumers in one place. Not just any place, but one that was easily accessible, informal and fun and from where ideas, feedback and sales would flow. And how right that concept has proven to be.
From the start, the Melbourne Design Market has been highly proactive and responsive to people’s interests and needs.
And that says as much about the people behind the market as the tens of thousands of people who have taken part in each event.
