Business Knows the Value of Design

Design is good business. Companies around the world are realizing that their survival today depends on better design. In New Zealand a group called Better by Design has been formed to help New Zealand become more competitive in the world economy through better design. Not only individual businesses, but design districts, cities, regions and whole countries are realizing that becoming "design destinations" is one of the best ways to secure sustainable economic prosperity and improve the quality of life for everyone.

Schools need to be as smart as the businesses and cities that surround them. Like businesses, schools need to be competitive not just on cost and quality but on design. Adding design education makes schools more relevant to students, parents and communities.
