At the DesignSingapore Council, we are passionate about unleashing the power of design to drive growth and economic success, bring people together and improve lives.
The design sector is poised to enhance Singapore’s value proposition and contribute to its economic growth and progress. Thus, the DesignSingapore Council was established in 2003 as the national agency that promotes design. In 2015, we were designated as a UNESCO Creative City of Design. This recognition is incorporated in our mission and is used to develop the creative culture and eco-system in Singapore to fully integrate design and creativity into everyday life.
To help us achieve this, we are guided by the Design 2025 Masterplan, with three focus areas, detailed below. The DesignSingapore Council is a subsidiary of the Singapore Economic Development Board.
