The Design Council champions great design. That means design which improves lives and makes things better.
As an enterprising charity, the Design Council's work places design at the heart of creating value by stimulating innovation in business and public services, improving our built environment and tackling complex social issues such as ageing and obesity.
It inspires new design thinking, encourages public debate and informs government policy to improve everyday life and help meet tomorrow’s challenges today.
