Mentoring tomorrow’s design leaders

​Mentoring relationships either click or they don’t, but the ones that do can last a lifetime.



Les Wynn, Design Manager Xerox Europe and Nextnet Mentor


From October 2007 to April 2008 the Design Council ran a pilot leadership development scheme for designers called NextNet. 

As part of it, we tested a mentoring programme which paired 13 mid-level designers with different senior designers.

This booklet shares what we learned about mentoring for designers.
