The DesignSingapore Council was established in 2003, when the Economic Review Committee identified three new economic growth sectors for Singapore, namely, the Education, Healthcare and Creative industries. The DesignSingapore Council is the national agency for design and is part of the Ministry of Communications and Information.
We are the lead agency spearheading the DesignSingapore Initiative to establish Singapore as a global city for design creativity and excellence in Asia.
The mission of the DesignSingapore Council is to develop Singapore into a global city for design where design innovation drives economic growth and enhances the quality of life. The DesignSingapore Council promotes and develops the design industries as a creative cluster, encourages the adoption of design by enterprises, and nurtures a climate of co-creation and innovation through design.
Our strategies cover four key domains:
Driving innovation and design IP creation to stay ahead of the curve
- National Design Centre
Offering a one-stop integrated design hub for designers and businesses to receive advisory, assistance and training, participate in design programmes, use its facilities, exchange information and tap on cross-industry collaborations for new value creation through design
