The Design Economy

Design Council commissioned our team, whilst working at TBR, to undertake research which articulated the value of design in the UK.  The research followed a similar methodology to that used in the DCMS Creative Industries Economic Estimates but developed a broader definition of design in order to deliver a robust and comprehensive assessment of the full economic impact of design in terms of employment, GVA and exports, the impact of design micro-businesses, the shape and size of the design sector and the use and under-use of design throughout the economy.  The research drew extensively on secondary data sources identified during a scoping study previously undertaken by the team.
