The UK Design Skills Alliance has appointed Turquoise to develop its brand in a bid to attract much-needed funding.
The Design Skills Alliance is a body formed as a collaboration between the Design Council and Creative & Cultural Skills. Over three years it is seeking £5m to secure the delivery of initiatives set out in its Design Blueprint, published in March (www.designweek.co.uk 26 March). This aims to help designers gain new skills and raise teaching standards in schools and colleges.
‘Appointing Turquoise to articulate an identity for the Design Skills Alliance is an important step forward for design skills, education and professional development in the UK. This work will form the foundations on which the delivery of the Design Blueprint will depend’, says Lesley Morris, head of the Design Skills Alliance.
