Design is important

Design is all around us and creates essential conditions for both cultural and economic developments. Teaching in the design field therefore has a very important place in today’s society in which visual and material culture are consumed and need to be challenged and questioned. 

Design can also be the solution to problems in our common society. Design serves as a tool to promote economic, social and ecological sustainability. Design can ask questions, challenge, influence and develop our time. Design can rise to global and local challenges, and design can contribute to the building of a more fair and inclusive future.
