DESIGN ADVOCATE PROGRAM

THE DESIGN 100 - The community DRIVENxDESIGN in other words we're design advocates; those who champion, promote and support others as they engage with design to help build tomorrow. 

Our maxim is Tech Disrupts, Design Integrates – so the more your business acts like a design practice the better you’ll be able to leverage the changes and advantages of tech enabled innovation.

Over the last years we’ve run a studio and suppliers program to help companies engage with the design community. Towards the end of 2015 we reviewed the programs and realised they had a huge amount in common. So much so, that by grouping them together we’d also be able to open up to those who have an aspiration to be driven by design as well as those who are driving design day by day in their work.

So welcome to the DESIGN ADVOCATE PROGRAM – a suite of benefits to help you communicate, bring others on-board and develop your team’s skills. Skills development is a key driver as talent development and retention is central to the growth of design capacity inside a business. We’ve already seen our Studio Partner organisations using networking, nominating and attending design100 events as a common tool in their staff development programs. Our intention is for you to also leverage this in your organisation.

The different levels are designed to be inclusive and also provide scaling benefits based on buy in - [get involved]

The Advocates Program is your first step to [get involved] to meet, share and collaborate with the 100 people you need to know in design.

Here are a couple of paras extracted from "The Designful Company" by Marty Neumeier 

"For businesses to bottle the kind of experiences that rivet minds and run away with hearts, not just one time but over and over, they’ll need to do more than hire designers. They’ll need to be designers. They’ll need to think like designers, feel like designers, work like designers." 

"Designers don’t actually ‘solve’ problems. They ‘work through’ them. They use non-logical processes that are difficult to express in words but easier to express in action. They use models, mockups, sketches, and stories as their vocabulary. They operate in the space between knowing and doing, prototyping new solutions that arise from their four strengths of empathy, intuition, imagination, and idealism."

 Check out Marty’s book The Designful Company for his thoughts on "how to build a culture of nonstop innovation".


Program Details

The DESIGN ADVOCATE PROGRAM provides resources for Design Advocates to accelerate, engage and interact.

Like you, The Design 100 is focused on growing demand for design, as we understand the economic, social and community value design brings.

Over the years we've had feedback from other Design Advocates that they needed more resources to help accelerate design throughout their organisation. The Design 100 Advocates program was created to package up a range of resources to help fellow advocates to reach our common goal. 

So whether you're advocating internally, to clients or to community members we now have a series of tools, resources and event opportunities to help you on the journey.
