About THE DESIGN 100


As a community of over 75,000 members and 20,000 organizations we come together to advocate and grow demand for design.

We celebrate the role of design in enriching the human experience. We see design as the human application of technology and champion the courage of those who commission, create and support design.

We believe that design has moved out of the department and into the boardroom, through products and services to the end-user and we call this Enterprise Wide Design.

We do this so our society can leverage the most effective, proven and understood method to accelerate transformation and innovation – design.

Tech disrupts, design integrates.

DRIVENxDESIGN celebrates design.

Design is the means to enrich experiences and provides a human centred methodology for change. 

DRIVENxDESIGN recognises the courage, excellence and diversity in design, and champions its role in delivering better futures.

DRIVENxDESIGN hosts conversations.

DRIVENxDESIGN summits explore the strategies and cultures that drive innovation and transformation through human centred business models. We examine Enterprise Wide Design and show how design has moved out of the department and into the boardroom and is now driving strategy at the very top of the level.

Each summit features leading design voices discussing the current state of the market, sharing their experiences and forecasting possible futures. The format can include labs, presentations or discussion panels and are ideal for anyone with an interest in the future of design.


DRIVENxDESIGN recognises great design.
