»To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit – it is to add value and meaning.« – Paul Rand

Constant change shapes our living environment, transforms working environments and traditional business fields. Increasing complexity and rapid technological developments require new collaboration models, cross-sector knowledge and access to the right project partners.

Design enables multidisciplinary teams to combine multiple impulses and fields of knowledge in a target-oriented way. Co-creation methods accelerate innovation cycles and promote the success of products by involving target groups at an early stage. Principles such as ecodesign and circular design enable forward-thinking solutions and sustainable added value.

Network formats of the IDZ support you in establishing valuable contacts and deepening the professional exchange. Thinkathons, innovation workshops or agency brokering offer access to our network of experts and innovative agencies.

Coaching programs and master classes open up access to personal development and specialist knowledge. In addition, we communicate your success through conferences and projects in the fields of design promotion and internationalization.
