Announced at the Design Forward 2016 Summit, the Design Forward Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by design and community leaders in the San Diego region who believe in creating a design-driven innovation economy.
The mission of Design Forward Alliance is to create a unified effort that promotes the value of professional design and design thinking for better outcomes in business, education, government and the San Diego community.
Innovation Designed Here
The Design Forward Alliance is actively working with business, academic, civic and design leaders to leverage human-centered design to shape the future of our mega-region. By putting people at the center of every decision we make, we will be able to co-create a place we’re all proud to call home — becoming a model for other regions around the world to follow.
