The Project
Design Transfer is a format of Creative Industries Styria. It connects companies of traditional economy with designers. Thus, laying the foundation stone for new products and services. Professional design is therefor used as a targeted competitive strategy to improve market opportunities. Designers, in turn, get the opportunity to work directly and create new solutions for clearly defined tasks.


Project Concept ” design 2 business”
The format consists of the following steps. Throughout the process, they serve as a guideline for the organiser, the company and the designers.

  1. Desire from the company for a new solution to maintain and establish its position on the market
  2. Work out of the task, followed by a call
  3. Submission of portfolios from the designers / Selection of designers by the company
  4. A cooperation agreement clarifies the legal framework before the project is launched.
  5. Working on the concept within 4 to 8 weeks / on-site support by Creative Industries Styria
  6. Concept presentation. In the ideal case, both sided continue their cooperation.
  7. Documentation and communication of the process by Creative Industries Styria
