Design Council's Industry Insights 2010

The Design Council recently released a paper called Industry Insights (via Design Week). There are tonnes of easily digestible facts and figures on design in here and it's well worth picking up a copy if you can.

The amount of coverage given over to in-house design teams was pleasantly surprising. As per my previous musings I've been watching with great interest how the profile of in-house design teams is rising and I'm glad to see the team at The Design Council giving it some attention. I was also quietly please to see the average age of a designer in the UK is 38 - glad to be considered young again.
