The Victorian Premier’s Design Awards celebrate Victoria designers and design innovations and promote the value of good design. Victoria’s design industry generates more than $5 billion for the state economy each year.
The design sector is a significant contributor to the Victorian economy. In Victoria, more than 98,000 people are directly employed in design related roles, with the sector generating revenues of $6 billion annually including an estimated $400 million in design-related exports.
The awards provide an opportunity for businesses and the community to better understand the role of design in making products, services, spaces and experiences more functional, safe, efficient and attractive. The awards also help raise awareness of the impact design can have on productivity and business outcomes and the role it plays in helping to shape a better environment and society.
