Everything designed, be it a product, identity, interface, architecture or communication, has one thing in common—it has to be managed.
Design management is the way to enhance collaboration and synergy between “design” and “business”.
In the UK, companies that are “effective users of design” outperformed the stock market by 200% over the last decade. —British Design Council, Design Index
Design management is the art and science of empowering design, for social, economic
and environmental benefit.
