A digital time capsule celebrating the design community's resourcefulness

We're inviting the interior design community to reflect and 'take note' of the year that's been by sharing what they have learnt in our new digital time capsule. 

For every message added, we will donate one make and design kit worth £20 to the Make Bank social project, helping future generations into the industry.

Time Capsule closes in:


A message to the future

Resourcefulness: the ability to find quick and clever ways to overcome difficulties.

The past year has made us all reconsider the resources at our disposal - and what we value most in our professional and personal lives.

To celebrate our 120th Anniversary, we are collating and sharing messages from across the design community that reflect on what it means to be resourceful today.

Send your own message to the future now.

Inspiring future generations

Increasing numbers of students are dropping out of creative subjects because they cannot afford the basic materials needed to complete coursework. Or, they’re simply unaware of the career opportunities that exist in the design industry.

With the help of the creative community, The Make Bank is nurturing, inspiring and encouraging the creative talent that will make up our diverse workforce of the future.

The social project provides art and design kits, inspiring stories and job advice for those who want to pursue creative careers.
