Design is changing how we look at the world and our lives, according to a new report.
The Future Of Design In A Digital Age by The Design Fund, which aims to develop and build the future of design, was launched today by the British design organisation and its founder, designer and futurist James Bond.
It comes just months after the launch of a new edition of The Design Review, which will also feature a special edition on design.
“We know that digital transformation has been the key to making design as compelling as ever,” said David Smith, the chairman of The FutureOfDesignFoundation, which is run by the BBC and the Design Fund.
“This report will provide a broad perspective on what we are seeing and how designers are finding the next steps.”
The report examines how design is evolving in the digital age and how it is influencing the world we live in.
It looks at how designers and their companies are creating the next generation of designer-entrepreneurs, creating better-connected communities, using new media and creating new business models.
It also looks at the challenges facing designers in the next few years, including the rise of bots and social media, as well as the rise in consumer choice.
The FutureofDesignFoundator says there are now more than a dozen different companies making and launching products that are designed to look a little like cars.
There are also a range of services available that enable designers to create the next wave of designer brands.
There is also a growing trend of people being able to create their own designs and using them for projects.
“There are many ways designers are being asked to make the most of their creativity,” said Mr Smith.
“A new breed of design agency is being formed every day.”
The report looks at where design is taking us and what it means for designers in future.
It includes key findings about the nature of design and how we can best use the digital world to deliver the best possible experience for customers.
“There is a real desire for a new style of design for the future that has emerged in the last few years and it’s about to explode,” said Dr Michael Kugler, chair of the Future Of Technology, Design And Design In Design (FTOD) group at the University of Nottingham.
“I believe designers will continue to be able to do what they do best in the years to come.
It’s up to designers to take the next step and create something truly unique and different that will be embraced by the world.”
A growing number of designers and companies are embracing digital platforms to deliver better experiences, while other industries are experimenting with digital and connected design.
The report says that for many of us, digital is not just about getting the job done but more than just a means of delivering information.
“The trend for designers to engage with their audience is changing.
We are moving away from an idea of what is a design project and the designer, to something more like a collaboration,” said Ms Smith.
More than ever before, designers need to take their design to the next level.
“What’s the best way to do a new project?
It’s now more about how you can use technology to create a product that has the potential to change the world,” said Chris Burdick, managing director at The Future Design Foundation.
“Designers are now looking to the future and finding the ways in which design can change the lives of people around the world.
The future of digital design is the future we have all been waiting for.”
