This is Design by Umeå

A platform for visualizing smart and progressive solutions within the design movement taking place in Umeå, a young and rapidly growing university city in the north of Sweden. Characterized by openminded people full of initiative, who help each other forward. We welcome the new – people, cultural expressions, research findings and design.

News and Events

We want designers that are able to work collaboratively in teams. And we find that the students from Umeå are very good at that.

Design with Umeå

We believe that design is key in creating our sustainable future. A process that listens, learns, and ultimately designs a solution that is better than the former. Whether it is products, urban development, interaction, research, or services. Umeå values and honors the qualities that characterize good design: knowledge, experience and confidence, curiosity, craftsmanship and perhaps above all - a willingness to cooperate.
