Who we work with
As independent design specialists, we apply our expertise across a range of settings and sectors.
Government departments and public sector organisations
We help local authorities to deliver savings through greater efficiency and innovation, and to design human-centred services that answer genuine needs. As an independent government advisor on design, we also influence policy and campaign for change.
Planners, developers, architects and local authorities
Through Design Council Cabe, we work with everyone involved in the built environment to create spaces, buildings and places that benefit all. Our support helps facilitate positive collaboration, improves viability and generates thriving, sustainable communities.
Universities, research organisations and technology start-ups
We work with technology entrepreneurs and universities, particularly science and technology research bodies, to commercialise research, help get products to market, and create rapid business growth.
Small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs)
Community groups, charities and funders
Our Design Challenges address some of the most complex social issues. We work with community groups, charities and funders to find innovative solutions to difficult problems. If you're interested in funding a Design Challenge, visit our partnerships page
