It is with pleasure that we present this first European Design Report of national facts and figures from 27 European countries. A total of 410,000 designers in Europe today generate an annual turnover of 35 billion euros. This represents 5.4 % of the added value of the EU Business Service Sector in 2002.

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.
