The ND2C Creative Fair is a showcase of some of the best design work we have come across. It is a place of opportunity, collaboration and learning; a talent hub; a bridge between creatives and the industry; agency and client; mentor and mentee.
Showcase some of your best work to an exclusive community of design enthusiasts; a premium opportunity to network with the most creative minds nationwide and around the world.
No matter what stage of your design career you’re at, the Creative Fair provides you with the opportunity to boost your profile/brand. Even if you have been working in the industry for a decade but regular client work doesn’t satisfy the rebel designer in you.
The Creative Fair this year will offer exhibitors all the spotlight they deserve – from website features, social media buzz, newsletter features and post-event promotion. The mileage you get from this experience is unprecedented.
Creative Fair gives you the opportunity to learn about industry trends and see how you’re doing in comparison to other great designers in the country.
Sometimes all you need is a healthy discussion and critique around your work with people who truly understand design. Done right, these little discussions can lead to collaborations, paid and / or passion projects, long term friendships, a job, or who knows what.
Plenty of structured and informal networking sessions mean tonnes of opportunities to forge new contacts and talk with like-minded industry giants and peers.
Although we want the Creative Fair to stand out for the wisdom, learning and relationships that come with exhibiting your work in front of the ND2C audience. The money you make at the Creative Fair or as a result of it may be significant but must be considered a by-product.
Unlike other ND2C passes, the exhibitor pass cannot just be bought. Instead we review applications to identify some of the best talent and curate an assortment of design work.
To apply, please fill out the form below and we will get in touch with selected applicants at regular intervals with more details:
We knew you’d ask. Yes, the investment amount is PKR 12,500 6,000/- per stall. This is payable within 3 working days of receiving confirmation of your selection from us.
We knew you’d ask that too.
This may be one of the only opportunities of its kind. It’s an experience we spend a year putting together. The linkages you build, the exposure you receive and the opportunity to get noticed by some of the bigwigs in the industry is invaluable to you as a creative. Consider it an investment in your career and brand. Our attendees, guests and speakers from around the world will be visiting your stall. The investment is one with a ridiculously high return.
We envision the Creative Fair to be a place of collaboration and opportunity and we feel it is extremely important that you personally represent your brand when someone walks to your stall. The way you can explain your brand, the process and what goes behind each piece of art, no one else can. We encourage exhibitors to be at their stall at all times and therefore do not allow entrance into the Main Hall before 3:00 p.m.
You may, however, attend the closing keynotes.
We want people from all across Pakistan to showcase their work. So yes, you can. But we do not provide assistance with travel and accommodation. The cost of the stall is exclusive of any travel and / or accommodation arrangements you may have to make.
If you hold the Exhibitor Pass you are responsible for your own space. Besides, nobody can represent your work and your brand better than you.
Sure! When life gives you lemons…
We will charge no commission on any sales you will make and encourage that you put your work up for sale. But we also want to stress to not focus on sale and rather on learning, networking, and generating leads.
Nope. We’ve kept the display areas small and simple. They’re only good for one brand or individual.
Each exhibitor will only be allowed one stall.
We have limited space and our candidates are carefully curated out of all applications we receive. The Exhibitor Pass is therefore non-exchangeable and non-refundable.
If you are unable to display your work after purchasing the Exhibitor Pass, we recommend you write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we have a shortlisted participant on the waiting list, we may try and accommodate your request but do not promise or guarantee any exchanges or refunds
You will be requested to display your work on portable devices such as laptop, tablets etc. LCD's, LED's and projector are not permissible.
Write to us at: email@example.com and we will get back to you shortly.
As a previous attendant of ND2C conferences, I’ve found the talent and dedication of Creative Fair participants to be inspiring. Taking part in it is an opportunity to share my work, foster connections and encourage aspiring creatives to believe in their work and put it out in the world.

I am a graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and a Master of Fine Arts in Design.
As a practicing, visual artist & designer, my design research involves the conceptual frameworks of speculative design, world-building, and design fiction to critically challenge and engage the audience to question the implication of today’s decisions in the future; using narrative tools such as digital Illustration, poster art, time-based & interactive media, experimental video-making and motion graphics. I enjoy telling stories, but I am even more excited about combining narratives in design with real and pertinent issues.
Displaying my work at nD2C will be an excellent opportunity to engage, network and meet with local artists, designers, and opportunities for future collaborations.
My design aesthetic is an amalgamation of the adorable and cheeky, the cute and witty, the fresh and gutsy. Women empowerment and equality is extremely important to me and this reflects in my work! At ND2C, I hope to show off my newest designs and soak in the positive design energy!

My passion for digital art and printmaking led to a degree in Textile Design that has now enabled me to turn my prints into tangible products. My artwork (collection) being presented at the ND2C is based on the colorful representation of Empress Market, Karachi. Displaying at ND2C is a designers’ dream, an ideal forum for introducing work that enables visibility to a greater audience. This collection would be my contribution towards achieving the scope of ND2C in furthering the design movement in Pakistan.
Raised with Disney Princesses films at one side and the tales of Seven Heroines of Sindh on the other, since infancy, I couldn’t help but wonder how the world would respond if they were somehow amalgamated. I am Hammad from Karachi a wannabe aspiring animator and I just wanted to intrigue and inspire the audiences at ND2C about the untold stories of the Princesses of the Land of Sindh. The ND2C platform is crucial to me since I’ll be sharing my artwork with a global audience and also gimme a chance to educate my viewers in person about the empowering struggles and tales of my childhood feminist heroines.
