Mark Illi

Board member of the Swiss Design Association, Switzerland

Shared creativity in innovation and design is the key to our evolution as a society. Over 20 years in the design profession have led me to this firm conviction. As a member of the board of the Swiss Design Association SDA, I address the social and political framework of Swiss design. I am particularly concerned with mandates in the areas of innovation and circular economy. For several design awards, I sit on the jury and participate in a network of design training institutes in Switzerland. I gained experience in prospective design by developing new concepts for product ecosystems (10 years+) before broadening my design experience with a continuing education MAS and an Executive MBA in Marketing Management at the University of Bern.
