Dezeen is kicking off a Virtual Design Festival, a first-of-its-kind online design event, and it gives brands and designers the chance to reach new audiences via digital booths. The schedule for the online event includes talks, interviews, movies, collaborations, product launches and more, which helps to support independent creators, students and design businesses that have been impacted by sudden closures, supply chain disruptions and the cancellation of in-person fairs and festivals.
On the Virtual Design Festival's first day, people can tune in to see self-recorded video messages from over 30 architects and designers and a live interview related to a post that was published on Dezeen last month and quickly became its most-read story of all time.
Although people may not be able to safely connect in person, this time is opening up new channels for people to come together via the Internet.
