New Year, New Ideas

Happy New Year DesignSparkers. 2019 is upon us and what better way to start the year than with a celebration of creativity? January is #CreativityMonth and being a community of engineers, this month is all about you!

Applying a little creativity solves many problems and engineers have it in abundance, although many of you modest types don’t even realise the power of your own creativity, in life not just in industry.

Academic systems are often criticised for stifling creativity and not everyone is able to break free of the limits we impose on ourselves as we grow up. So there’s even more reason to celebrate the creativity of engineers the world over – you broke the mould.

Show off your creativity

Why not celebrate with DesignSpark this New Year and apply your creative engineering skills to our latest design challenge? DesignSpark’s Wearable Technology Design Challenge is now open and you could win a £1,500 shopping spree at RS Components to further your creativity even more!

We’re looking for wearables designs that monitor or improve health, or keep someone safe – so focus your efforts this #Creativity Month and you could be enjoying an engineer’s dream shopping trip on us.
