Design’s contribution to the UK ᔥDesign Council
Great design can change lives, communities and organisations for the better. It can create better places to live, bring communities together, and can transform business and public services. Design is a way of thinking that helps large organisations, small and medium-sized enterprises, social enterprises and charities change the way they work.
Design’s contribution to the UK economy is £71.7bn in gross value added (GVA), equivalent to 7.2% of UK total GVA
Workers with a design element to their work were 41% more productive than the average
The design economy is mostly male (78% of designers) – compared to 53% of the wider UK workforce
In 2013, the total value of exports where design had made a key contribution was £34bn
