In partnership with the Agence de développement et d’urbanisme de Lille Métropole, lille—design is lauching on the 10th October 2019 an observation space for design in Hauts-de-France. The aim of this project is to evaluate how creative is our territory.
We determined 3 axis for the studies:
– to identify the supply and demand in design
– to understand the levels of design practices
– to measure the economic impacts of design in companies
Our territory will be the pilot one, and the project has a national target, as we will then share our tools and practices with other territories in France. The aim is to get a real complete study of the impacts of design and this study will also be done on a long time in order to see the evolution.
