The Design Economy

Most people do understand that design has something of a role in our everyday life. It shapes the products and services we use and the world we live in. However, not everyone understands the impact of design’s real potential in Atlanta’s economic growth.

The Atlanta Design Festival seeks to develop Atlanta’s growing design economy revolution including promoting industry, commerce and culture. Billions annually is spent directly and indirectly on design in Atlanta and the southeast; and decision-makers are increasingly looking for new and imaginative products and solutions that bring bold ideas to life.
