Design is orientation. Design is differentiation. Design makes brands strong – and companies successful. We provide a forum for interdisciplinary knowledge transfer and give our members a competitive edge: independently, internationally, competently.

German Design Council Foundation

The German Design Council is one of the world’s leading competence centres for design. Created by the German Parliament and sponsored by German industry, it has been supporting companies on all matters relating to brand and design development for over 60 years and works to promote German design as a national economic factor. It plays a key role in shaping Germany’s design culture and offers a unique forum for knowledge transfer in the field of brand and design expertise.
