Design Industry Research 2010

15 January 2010

In autumn 2009 the Design Council conducted its second comprehensive survey of the UK design industry.

This survey covered 2,200 design businesses including in-house design teams, design consultancies and freelance designers working across communications, digital & multimedia, interior & exhibition, product & industrial, fashion and service design disciplines. Design businesses were asked about the profile and size of their businesses, their clients and the competition they face, their business practices and the education, training and skills of their employees.
