This report makes the case that industrial design is an underutilized growth catalyst for U.S. small and medium-sized manufactures (SMMs). Based on interviews with over 40 field experts and an extensive literature review, the report lays out why industrial design is important, offers data and examples to support those assertions, and shares successful models of practice from across the country.
On April 19, the NEA along with the BEA announced the latest data (from 2014) from the Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account (ASPCA), a resource that provides in-depth analysis of the arts and cultural sector's contributions to the U.S. economy. For the first time, the ACPSA reported state-level data on employment and compensation in the sector including within industrial design.
The data also indicates that industrial design services was one of the fastest-growing arts industries. Between 2012 and 2014, average annual growth in real value added by the industry was 4.1 percent. By comparison, the overall arts economy grew by 1.4 percent and U.S. GDP average annual growth was 1.3 percent.
The NEA has supported industrial design for many years through research and funding. In 2013, the NEA published Valuing the Art of Industrial Design which highlights the number of working industrial designers and their earnings, the industries employing the greatest numbers of designers, and their geographic concentration in western and mid-western states. Through its funding programs over the last five years, the NEA has awarded more than 25 grants and more than $800,000 to support projects that focus on or utilize industrial design.
One of the most important factors within our discussion of globalization and interior design is education. Students, instructors and professionals need to have the resources and skills to research a culture and incorporate what they learn into their designs. Whether through a study abroad program or real-world projects with diverse communities here at home, colleges are providing ever more opportunities for students to learn from and work with members of different cultural groups.
Globalization refers to any activity that brings the people, cultures and economies of different countries closer together. In business, "globalization" refers to practices by which organizations become better connected to their customers around the world. This includes any aspect of operating in different national markets, from product design to marketing.
