Experience

Why a local community?

As creatives we live and work in a global industry. A lot of us use Twitter. We have Dribbble, Behance and online portfolios and we have daily interactions with people from around the world. The Design community is huge and wide and when we express ourselves or share our work, our audience is often global. This environment is, in many ways, amazing because it exposes Danish design and opens up collaboration and client relations across bordes. It has become a lot easier to be a designer because we have access to this growing global industry of like minded people.

But in a world where the global mindset is everywhere it is exactly important to find the value in the local creative environment. If we remove the international glasses for a while we see that both young and old designers live in a tiny country where everyone is trying to make a living doing what they love.

When we see things through a regional perspective it helps us overcome challenges that is particular to Denmark. A geographically rooted community helps us create stronger relations simply because our values, surroundings and the literal distance is so close. It is easier to talk about freelancing, work environments, share jobs, help students and it is easier to meet in real life.

 

 

 

What do we want?

With designdk we hope to create a strong local creative community aimed at strengthening the Danish design industry. A community that makes it easier for students to take advantage of the experienced talents already working in Denmark. A community where we can exchange and discuss developments in design seen through a local perspective. A community that can support danish products and initiatives and a platform where we can plan and improve the conditions for design in Denmark.
