Melbourne Indesign 2016 begins next week, and it’s been all hands on deck from the team behind the scenes at MID. Indesign: The Event has been pared back by the organisers this year who say they've made efforts to ensure design hunters have access to only the highest-quality exhibitions, seminars and events.



For the first time in Melbourne Indesign history, visitors are invited to join the MID team and friends in the CBD for "a night out with design". At Up Late Indesign, an exclusive Friday evening ‘bar hop’ between five of the city’s top design retailers, you will be joined by a bunch of Melbourne’s favourite designers and brands for a city spanning exploration of "what’s new in design".
