We are building a movement, to shift the focus of industry from producing more to producing better.

Secrid gives the stage to talented designers and supports them in developing products that contribute to a sustainable future. In this way we are building a movement, to help shift the focus of industry from producing more to producing better. 

During Dutch Design Week we shine a spotlight on 7 talented designers. Creatives whose product designs are boosting the evolution of their industry. In addition to a podium spot, each designer receives coaching and a cash prize of €7,777: a reference to our 7 design principles for holistic product design.  

The Secrid Talent Podium is a collaboration between Secrid and Dutch Design Foundation. Together we believe in design as a force for good. Below, you can dive into the inspiring stories of the designers that we support.
