Design Council’s programmes demonstrate how design makes a difference and supports creativity and innovation. They are all based on our core methodology, the Framework for Innovation, at the heart of which sits our internationally adopted design process, the Double Diamond.

Previous programmes that we have run have supported design across Europe, trained civil servants and supported business growth.

Whatever the question, design has an answer.

Design Council Product Development

Between 2014 and 2019 Design Council ran Spark – a product innovation programme and fund. Over those five years, Spark helped some of the UK’s most promising entrepreneurs to fast-track their products to market.
