Strong UK design force

Up to 30 000 people work in London’s design industry, according to a report for the London First Centre, while the UK as a whole houses 40 per cent of Europe’s design groups.

The country’s design groups turned over 1000m in 1994, says the report, The London Design Initiative, compiled by Mary Rogers & Associates. Overseas earnings in 1994 are estimated at 150m.

The report examines the potential for London’s design industry to attract investment to the capital.
