Cool Foreign Design Councils
What are design councils? Short answer: I don’t know. Long answer: I believe design councils were formed by government agencies to promote their countries design talent. So, the design council lists and promotes significant designers and design related events throughout the country.
Why is this so cool? Because it’s a concise way to find out who’s coming up with exciting ideas around the world.
I hope to expand this list into a whole huge section of the Design Crack Website, but for now, I will simply list a few links for various design councils:
- DDC- Danish Design Council
- British Council Arts
- Design Council (British)
- Scandinavian Design
- Design Forum Finland
- Pure Austrian Design
- Portuguese Design Center
- Canadian Design Research Network
- Design Wales
- Design France (not so good)
- Design Institute of Australia
This is just to get you started. I’m telling you: just this list will keep any design freak like myself titillated for hours!
