The Design Council champions great design. That means design that improves lives and makes things better. The Design Council works in a global context and delivers programs throughout the UK and beyond. "Great design can change lives, communities and organisations for the better. It can create better places to live, and bring communities together. It can encourage healthier living. It can transform business and public services" states the Design Council. The Design Council mission is to champion this standard of design. As the UK Government’s advisor on design, it sets the benchmark for promoting design nationwide. The councils research and campaigns aim to show just how much intelligent, creative design can achieve. Working with designers and other disciplines, the council tackles major issues like health, ageing and community cohesion. The council helps foster innovation in business and public services, and improve our built environment. The council gives people the advice, practical tools and knowledge to achieve positive changes in business, government or local communities. Most importantly, the council gets results. Every day, they're proving that design can make a tangible difference, by developing products and services as useful as they are beautiful.
