Local Heroes puts design from Scotland on an international stage, presenting and promoting Scottish products and industries to the public, with a focus on high quality design. Through exhibitions and events we provide unique opportunities for people to appreciate Scotland’s contemporary design landscape.

Through commissions, we support designers to develop exciting new work. And by underwriting the cost of materials, production or design time, we encourage playful and experimental approaches to new products which celebrate Scottish design and innovation.

Local Heroes pioneers cross-sector partnerships uniting expertise in design, culture, cities, creativity, enterprise, entrepreneurship, travel and tourism. We enjoy working together with like-minded organisations and people
to present Scottish design talent to the world.
