Freelancer portal launches on the London Design Festival website

This year, London Design Festival want to put the spotlight on the brilliance of London’s design scene at a time when it needs to be promoted more than ever. We recognise that freelancers in particular have been impacted by the pandemic, and the Festival wants to support this community by providing a voice to new talent and freelancers. As such, for 2020 we have created a freelancer portal where freelancers can share design content and their portfolio with the Festival audience.
