What is design and what are designers? Good design can change lives and improve services within the public, private and third sectors. Designers are creative problem solvers who can make ideas visible and tangible, using a unique set of skills and strategies easily transferable to entrepreneurial thinking, and local authority and community initiative.

As part of the Institute for Creative Industries, the Centre for Design Practice & Research comprises a team of design academics and creative practitioners with expertise in graphic design and branding, lighting design, product and furniture design, urbanism, interaction design, exhibition design, advertising, design ethnography, museum interpretation, moving image design, and architectural and interior design.

The scope of our work extends across design research, consultancy, commercialisation, knowledge transfer, and CPD. We have an established track record of interfacing with industry and working with the public sector on a range of projects involving creative development, idea generation, prototyping and innovation. We have also exhibited our work at London Design Week, The Lighthouse, and the Six Cities Design Festival.
