Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC) is a publicly funded, non-profit organisation, funded by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government. It established in 2001 with the support of the design industry. HKDC's mission is to use design and innovation to drive value creation and improve the well-being of society, while the vision is to establish Hong Kong as a centre of design excellence in Asia. Design for Society is a major undertaking of Hong Kong Design Centre in
- promoting and celebrating design excellence,
- championing strategic and wider use of design for creating business added value and community benefits; and
- educating the professions and the community to be resourceful and champions for sustained developments through design and innovation.
The long-term success of HKDC requires continued feedback and unfailing support from the community and different professions across various design fields, education, commercial, voluntary and public sectors.
HKDC organises regular seminars, workshops, exhibitions and conferences including the Business of Design Week (BODW) which is an annual week-long event organised every December, with the purpose of promoting the awareness of the value of design.
The HKDC also gives out awards each year known as the “HKDC Awards” to encourage good design in the Asia region.
