eXpression Design

From idea to action

The program is a collaboration between eXpression Umeå and the creative network High Coast Creative in Örnsköldsvik. To this reason, two parallel programmes are organised which will have certain activities in common. As a participant you get access to a platform with lectures and workshops in the process from sketch to finished product on the market.

eXpression Design offers the tools and it is you as a creator who makes it a reality. The goal is in addition to being able to develop a locally produced product, in addition to growing in your entrepreneurship and your ability to create sustainable collaborations and networks. The aim is to strengthen profitability, find new markets and develop local production. As a later step, it is possible to focus on internationalization and go deeper in strategic planning for further development.

This is a chance for you as a creator who wants to switch up and move from idea to action.
