State of Design Survey


November 18th 2022

Design denmark is launching an extensive survey looking for responses from the entire Danish design community to find out the state of design in Denmark. We need your help: 

We are launching the survey because we feel a general lack of transparency in the industry which needs to be fully alleviated by the member-based or thematic design surveys of the recent past. Inspired by a Swedish study by the same name, documenting the conditions and progress in the Swedish design community for the past seven years, our ambition is to do the same in Denmark. In a Danish context, our survey is uniquely essential in several ways:

  1.  We invite the entire design community to participate in the survey regardless of what club or organization you are a member of because we believe in the power of coming together. 
  2. Our survey addresses asking questions and addressing issues across hierarchies and work roles. We believe there is interesting data to be found by looking at the design community across categories and work roles rather than doing “silo studies.”
  3. We want to map the progress of the design community over time and expect to conduct a variation of the survey every year.
  4. Since they are conducting a similar survey in Sweden and Norway, we can compare our data with our fellow Nordic countries.

The survey is essential because your answers will help shape the political agendas and activities we wish to pursue in the future for the benefit of our members and the Danish design community.  

The results of the survey will be made freely available.
