Finnish Design Info website launched

The goal is to share information about Finnish design, its diversity and what it can achieve.
Finnish Design Info website is now open

The field of Finnish design has plenty to offer Finland and the rest of the world. Good design is an asset that makes products and services functional and attractive. Good design is also a tool, which can be used to solve the challenges of sustainable development and social justice.

Finnish design has a unique history, its present day is filled with diversity and ambition and its future is full of opportunities. Finnish design has the potential to flourish even more. 

Finnish Design Info is based on a shared desire to provide information about Finnish design and to support the design industry.

The Finnish Design Info project was launched in 2020 by six key actors in the field of Finnish design: Aalto University, Design Forum Finland, the Design Museum, the Grafia Association of Visual Communication Designers, Helsinki Design Week (Luovi Productions Ltd) and Ornamo Art and Design Finland.

Finnish Design Info is funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture.
