* Design pour une innovation créative

Nantes Shanghai Pune São Paulo Montréal

Promoting design among key players in the economic community is at the core of what we do. This discipline needs to become more than just a dot on corporate radar screens so that companies consider it fundamental to their development strategy.

Through conferences, seminars, workshops and awards ceremonies, among others, our goal is to illustrate the numerous benefits and purposes of design for SMEs.

We also work with local authorities and organizations wishing to implement a design event, competition or seminar.
