Design Economy Survey

We have been building out a multifaceted research project following the recommendations and findings from the design mapping exercise and consultations conducted in 2020. Currently, there is a lack of consolidated information regarding the full scope of design-related business activity in Barbados. Therefore, we need to gather a body of critical, actionable information on the characteristics of  Barbados’ Design Ecosystem, which will in turn inform a strategic actions. This assessment tool will enable us to identify gaps; design and deliver targeted assistance and interventions to bolster our design economy and its ecosystem; and ultimately illuminate and exploit opportunities for design exports.
