Designboost envisions a holistic approach as a condition for sustainable design. To fulfil this vision we believe in upgrading design competence and boosting competitiveness by knowledge sharing. Our four inter-related platforms: BoostEvent, BoostMedia, BoostResource and BoostConcept can be further explored in our periodical table of design knowledge.
Designboost offers you means to upgrade your design knowledge and helps you to make the most of it.
Imagine: You are discussing concept development in your company. It might concern products, services or communication. You know that design is an important tool but also that it is multifaceted and has to be applied not only with skill but with continuously upgraded knowledge. There are a number of design strategists and design consultancies available. When you choose, not only do you buy help, you buy ideas: their ideas, a limited selection.
Imagine again: You are a designer. Influences fall on you like rain and you feel like collecting some to discuss and evaluate. With whom, when and where? Your colleagues and possible sources of inspiration are spread over the globe.
This is where Designboost is unique: at our Events and further through our Media, Concepts and Resources you are not limited to a few individuals and their ideas and knowledge. You have the opportunity to discuss and listen to several of the world’s best design professionals and let your thoughts follow more than one path before deciding on your final direction.
Designboost is for individuals and organisations that regard design as a competitive but multifaceted tool and who are prepared to both give and take: knowledge, inspiration and experience. As a Booster you contribute conceptually and only your imagination limits what you take. As a Partner you add funds or alternatively take on work, provide services and act as a supplier or facilitator. Your reward is new knowledge, added dimensions, access to worldwide competence and help in continuing to make the best of your new insights.
Companies and organisations are invited to create a meaningful relationship with Designboost, for at least one year. A selection of your key professionals becomes integrated in all the Boost Events over the year, both in Sweden and elsewhere. They have the opportunity of setting questions for the BoostChats as well as for the BoostCasts. Exposure through relevant articles in BoostMedia, conceptual advice and access to our entire network are other examples of what you are offered as part of the deal, which always is totally customised.
Expert professionals are invited to boost: to inspire, challenge, question and explain in BoostChats, BoostTalks and BoostCasts. To boost is also to present your views in articles for our BoostMags and BoostBooks. You and your CV are a defined BoostResource and as part of our network you are continuously exposed to professional opportunities. You give us your time and you immediately become part of an influential international community.
Every theme needs Boosters. You might be invited to boost a second time but most likely you will be asked to contribute in a different way: in a special project, as a writer, as a columnist or as an adviser: contributing in a small or a large way.
This is an opportunity for companies or organisations to build up an initial relationship with Designboost. You contribute to an agreed BoostEvent in which a number of your key professionals are integrated into the activities, enabling them to bring back new approaches to design issues relevant to your organisation.
We invite guests from business and education as well as selling guest tickets to our prime annual event, Designboost, and to the MiniBoosts.
