Whilst the value and importance of the creative industries, design and design education are repeatedly highlighted by Government agencies, professional bodies and high profile exponents, there is perhaps a more pressing need than ever to more effectively connect the UK’s amazing young creative talent to the universal agenda of improving our economy and people’s lives through innovation, successful products, services and organisations.
Within Design Higher Education the solution isn’t simply bolting on Entrepreneurship classes. Although this approach may be helpful in certain cases, there is a need for a more integrated approach which embraces the diverse, complex and creative cultures of Design in the UK. But with over 55,000 undergraduate design students in the UK, small steps to enhance enterprise can build momentum.
