Design Council’s mission is to make life better by design. We work with people to create better places, better products and better services and systems, all of which lead to better outcomes.
One way we do this is to commission pioneering evidence-based research into the state of design and design skills in the UK through our flagship Design Economy series – and it’s sister document, Designing a Future Economy. Our intention is to publish the next Design Economy in 2021 (DE21).
The ambition for DE21 is to move the Design Economy from being just about the state of design in the UK, to more robustly illustrate how design and design skills make a difference; and demonstrate the value they bring in helping the UK tackle major challenges that we are facing today – socially, environmentally and economically. A useful blog that outlines our ambition can be found here.
We are now seeking an organisation or consultant(s) to carry out a five month scoping project to set out the research parameters, methodology and stakeholder strategy for the next iteration of the Design Council’s Design Economy report: DE21. This work will, in large part, inform the methodological approach we take to capture the evidence for DE21.
We welcome bidders from the private and academic sector.
Questions about the brief need to be submitted by 19th November to Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for applications is Monday 30th November 2020 – 5pm
