I’m going to be giving a keynote speech at the big Design Korea conference in early December on “Designomics.” I hadn’t heard the term before but I like it a lot, as it combines economics and design in one easy-on-the-ears word. It’s very interesting that Korea is embracing it, since the country is pouring billions into design.
Check out this interview with Seoul’s Chief Design Officer, Kyung-won Chung who talks about his “Designomics” strategy for the city and South Korea.
Does New York City have a Chief Design Officer? San Francisco? Chicago? LA? New Orleans? Toronto? New Delhi? Shanghai? Singapore? Paris? London? Berlin? Rome? Rio? Abu Dhabi? Tokyo? Beijing? Bangalore?
