Webcast: 12 Types of Design Function

Iain Aitchison, Program Director, Glasgow School of Art and Founder Graft Ltd.

Recent years have seen sustained growth of in-house design teams around the world, in public and private sectors and across all areas of the economy. But who are these mass-ranks of in-house designers, what type of roles do they have, and how are they organised?

Following research into the jobs of designers in 500 leading companies, Iain Aitchison and his team at GRAFT have produced a model of 17 design job types that encapsulate the work of in-house designers today and identified 12 types of design function that represent the scope and missions of in-house design teams today.

This September in Boston Iain Aitchison will present at the dmi:Design Leadership Conference,"Reinvention & Renewal".
