Everyone is talking about innovation—a practice and a way of thinking that allows businesses to tap into new opportunities, interesting collaborations and untapped markets. This is where ‘design’—the bedrock of commercially relevant innovation—becomes imperative to Sri Lankan business.

With its opportunities to network, recruit and form new collaborations with young design talent, REVEAL Graduate Design Showcase presents businesses and organisations a unique opportunity to source fresh energy to take their work to the next level. 

Design is a practice that has been proven to open up new avenues, unlock big ideas and bring in fresh connections between people, products, services, brands and businesses. It can help businesses achieve superior market edge, leapfrog competition and leave a lasting impression in the minds of consumers.
