about the festival

We are Zlin Design Week, a week-long design festival where everyone can find inspiration. Through ZDW we create a platform for young designers and professionals to meet, present, express, share and make unexpected connections. We support young talents and bring a fresh wind to the design industry.

Since 2015, we have been operating under the auspices of the Faculty of Multimedia Communications at Tomas Bata University in Zlín, thanks to the interdisciplinary collaboration of design, marketing, photography and audiovisual.

The students involved in the festival are financially supported through the IGA-K project – Support for Student Professional Activities in the Creative Industries, which is funded by the Zlín Region.
