These are the results of the first ever comprehensive study of the Nordic design resource. The study reveals that there are far more design professionals in the Nordic countries than previously detected. Furthermore, the study offers new insights into how designers operate in a Nordic context. These insights are crucial in order to provide a more solid understanding of the design field in the Nordics.
The study is based on an innovative methodological approach combining both classical and new sources of data.
