Design and Economic Development


This quarter, contributors explore how design is not only a corporate resource but also a pathway to community and national development. A summary of recent research confirms that design improves bottom-line results. A case study shows how Umqua Bank in Portland has leveraged design to help make itself a cornerstone of regional business success. Other authors discuss how nations--including Korea, Denmark, Ireland, and Poland--regard design as a policy opportunity for improving global competitiveness. Finally, two articles analyze programs that support the use of design among SMEs.
