When the jury was selecting the designer of the year 2022, they reviewed the winning works of all the different competitions of the recent years and the people behind them. There was one name that started repeating and reappearing in different places and categories, again and again. This person is Ivan Khmelevsky. Ivan is a designer with a very elegant, minimalist, and modern design language, from whose work and style always glows through the idea and reasoning ability, together with brilliant innovativeness.
The website of the Estonian Design Centre received support from the creative industries programme for the development of support structures, joint projects and export capacity. The project “Creating added value with design” received 300,000 euros of support from Enterprise Estonia through the European Regional Development Fund. The project lasted from May 2015 to May 2017 and its aim was to increase the use of design among Estonian enterprises as well as boost the export volume and added value of design agencies. The project was used to carry out several activities, such as the Design Bulldozer programme, seminars, training sessions and study trips to match the needs of entrepreneurs and design agencies so as to meet the goals of the project.
