The current situation poses enormous challenges for people and companies around the world. The German Design Council, which has been committed to assuring the future viability of companies through the strategic use of design, brand management and innovation ever since 1953, is still right there for you. We are adhering strictly to the guidelines and recommendations from the Federal Government and the Robert Koch Institute. Our employees are therefore working from home, but they remain available to answer your questions about our activities as usual. We will inform you in good time, of course, if the current situation requires digital solutions or causes events to be postponed.
Design, branding and innovation are the most important success factors for corporate strategy – especially in times of upheaval and crises such as the one we are currently facing. Going forward, one thing above all else will be critical for the success of companies and for the wellbeing of everyone in society: clear communication, a strong network, exchanging views, and giving each other mutual support. We are investing in the future through our events and international competitions, by promoting young talent and fostering a strong network of our foundation members. We want to help you to position yourselves as best you can, and above all to keep in touch. Please contact us if you have any questions about our activities or organisational procedures.
Stay safe, stay healthy!
