Around this time of year we wait with baited breath to see the plethora of amazing design talent from today’s students/graduates showcasing their end of year creative works. Spanning disciplines from product and textile to graphic and furniture design and more, they converge at degree shows all over the country and witnessing this explosion of talent is an exciting time!

So what better on British IP Day than to celebrate designers of tomorrow with the launch of another new initiative – a special and affordable student ACID membership with access to the full range of member benefits.


With so many demands on limited funds to protect new designs and also learn about the value of IP, ACID has slashed its membership offer to students, giving access to tips, guidance and advice about all aspects of intellectual property and also access to some of the valuable IP benefits such as the Copyright & Design Databank – a safe way to lodge designs for a few pence. Making money by ensuring ideas grow into income all just requires a little bit of IP savvy and the creation of a proactive intellectual property strategy. Use of the ACID logo as a powerful brand of deterrence against copying and is a powerful tool in any designer’s armoury!

At a cost of less than a couple of drinks per month – what is there not to like? Do you want to protect your new designs and find out how to maximise your IP? It’s a no brainer, find out more here

The Alliance for IP is celebrating #BritishIPDay this year with their “Meet Your MP” initiative together with the announcement of the 2nd IP Champion Award  Last year Anti Copying in Design (ACID) was honoured to be the first ever British IP Champion!

Intellectual Property is not just fundamental to the success of creative businesses but also to the wider economy, including the retail and supply chain. In light of the Great Repeal Act and the Industrial Strategy, it is vital that IP is a priority for Government and that these key contributions continue to be recognised.  The UK design industry continues to go from strength to strength – in 2013, the design economy generated £71.7 billion in GVA, equivalent to 7.2% of total GVA[1] – which just highlights the invaluable ‘soft power’ attraction of the UK.  This success is only possible by maintaining strong IP protections.
