The Design Council | August 22, 2003

The UK's Design Council aims to help people and organisations understand and use design more effectively.

As part of this strategy they have an excellent About Design section on their site which focuses on design issues such as user centered design, information design, interaction design and inclusive (or accessible) design.

They also run a number of sister sites including the excellent Web design for business site. The aim of this site is to help small and medium businesses manage the process of designing a website. This includes information about setting requirements and writing a request for proposal (RFP), choosing a designer, developing the brief and finally building and reviewing the site. This seems like a great resource for potential clients and web designers alike.

That’s a great idea, I wish more places would seek to educate people in regards to making design-related decisions.

Think they’d be interested in opening up a branch for the Atlantic Canadian provinces? ;)

This is what I meant when I gave my opinion in the forum in http://www.andybudd.com/blog/archives/000033.html
I hope this Council get a good end and people effectively get a better understanding about the visual value.
