The data in The Business of Design is drawn from the Design Council’s 2005 Design Industry Research, commissioned with the DBA.

All worthwhile plans and projects need to be based on sound evidence. So, to underpin our future initiatives to strengthen the UK’s design industry we’ve undertaken this first comprehensive survey of the sector.

What’s emerged is the clearest picture yet of its strengths, its potential and its key challenges.
