2008 : Year for Design

Design Summit at Bangalore brought gathering of huge local as well international designers to catch up ...some to share knowledge some goods..each had their own pick.

Lot of us missed many session due to break-out session..I am some how not convinced of the idea especially in Design domain because at end of the day one always feels the other session must have been better....from delegate point of ends up seeing most crowd in one session remaining sessions seems like bus stand people getting in and getting out...

Any way "Star" session was that of Kishore Biyani's Interaction with Bruce and Uday...very thought provoking,impromptu and had straight from heart talk...from business man's point of view...

Here is link to Sir George Cox ...

It addresses :
eorge Cox, Chairman of the Design Council, will report, by the 2005 pre-Budget Report, on how best to enhance UK business productivity by drawing on our world-leading creative capabilities.

The review will address two specific issues:

  • Firstly it will identify how best to strengthen the relationship between businesses - particularly SMEs - and creative professionals drawn from a range of design, arts and related disciplines. These will include the potential impact on business performance of, among other things, digital media, product and industrial design, the arts and culture, graphics, branding and advertising, publishing, packaging, as well as interior and retail design. Within this, the review will have a particular focus on the role of creativity in modern manufacturing.
  • Secondly, the review will look at strengthening the links across university departments and with industry. This will include new forms of courses, services and alliances involving, amongst others, art, design and creative courses, business schools and engineering and technology courses.

The review will propose specific action in both of these areas, for Government, businesses and other institutions, with the objective of raising UK productivity.
