Design in Britain features facts and figures underlining the financial and cultural benefits design can bring to businesses.

In 2008 we surveyed 1,522 firms across the United Kingdom in order to gain insight into how UK businesses regard and use design. This new research  helps us to gain greater insight into the benefits of design – and to offer practical information to businesses and policymakers.

This 2008 publication is the fourth in a series exploring the power of design to UK business. You can download the previous publications below:
