Celebrate Design Sweden’s 60th anniversary, we threw an evening of mingle-talks by some of Sweden’s leading designers and creatives.
Our theme? Purpose – Why do we do what we do? Why are we designers? How is this playing a part in our careers?
Design Sweden turns 60 and sets out to map Swedish Design, globally.
As design assumes an ever-larger role in both private and professional life, the member organization Design Sweden continues to champion those who drive the movement – the design practitioners in Sweden and abroad. Design Sweden is growing fast, and now amounts to a total of 1810 designers.
The association may be turning 60 in 2017, but this is just the beginning. With a goal of reaching 10,000 members, and installing a full-time office dedicated to improving the working-day situation for designers, we are now launching two ambitious initiatives;
We are mapping out Design Sweden. This important project serves to create an interactive map – the definite creative index of designers working in/with Sweden. www.designsweden.org/map
We are introducing a participatory research format labeled ‘Design Sweden Sessions’, aimed at providing snapshots of the practitioner’s situation and ideas. With these networking sessions, we dive into the current state of design in Sweden and abroad. Each session focuses on a trending or topical question, to enable our community to get a holistic view of what Sweden’s designers think. The result is shared with everyone via; www.designsweden.org/sessions With these two new initiatives, Design Sweden aims to better understand the landscape of working in design today, and to provide a community and services to design practitioners connected to Sweden.
