In the Landscape section can access the design policy ecosystems that we have reviewed so far by selecting a country on the map. Click on a marker to display the country related ecosystem.

The framework section guides you in understanding the teorethical model behind the Beacon. We developed this framework based on 7 categories of investment for policies in support of design.

The catalogue section provides all policies so far collected into the Beacon, which can be sorted and filtered by specific parameters.

If you are interested in collaborating with us to map your design policies or your own design policy ecosystem, we invite you to find all informations in the dedicated section.

The mobile version of the Design Policy Beacon is still under development.
