Design and National Policy: Assessing Government’s Options


With the U.S. as a notable exception, many nations have organizations to promote design as a corporate resource, institutions with programs that demonstrate how effectively managed design contributes to such key business goals as quality, competitiveness, and productivity. This issue reviews design policy models from England, Canada, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and the grassroots efforts being developed in San Antonio, Texas. It also includes commentary on the difficult challenge of establishing a design-promotion organization within the US, with essays that offer both short- and long-term recommendations for specific American design policy initiatives.
