Bristol & Bath by Design

This project will examine the use of design in businesses and public-sector organisations in Bristol and Bath. Employing quantitative and qualitative methods, researchers will articulate the social and economic value of design and assess the nature and quality of regional design networks. The team intends to use network theory and qualitative reporting to map the ways in which design contributes to growth and innovation in the vibrant regional economy. The economic and cultural value of the region’s design-led sector will also be analysed. “This collaborative partnership of universities and key sector organisations will measure the quantifiable impact of design in the Bristol/Bath city-region across sectors and scale: from engineering and product design to multidisciplinary studios, fashion, heritage, and applied design; from designer-makers and microbusinesses to large multinationals,” said Stephen Hoskins, director of the Centre for Fine Print Research at the University of the West of England.
