Design adds value
Our services are based on two of our main goals. First, we use our services to realise our main promise – to be a link in the design world, bring together designers and clients. Our second aim is to talk about design as added value and something that fosters innovation. Good design creates added value for businesses and through the public sector for all of us.
How does design create value? We can answer this question with our workshops and trainings, master classes, training programmes, contact events, think tanks and seminars. To measure the value of design we perform studies. We focus on good design in our design blog, design map and design market. The best are rewarded at the Estonian Design Awards and – in cooperation with Enterprise Estonia – at the Entrepreneurship Awards in the Design User category.
For entrepreneursWould you like to grow your business through design? Estonian Design Centre is the best place to start.
