BIG SEE Debate: Growing up with design

Toys are a children’s development essential ingredient, enabling and encouraging various forms of play. Annual spending on toys in Europe is around 25 billion €. Toy design has several special demands: a toy needs to be extremely safe, it is supposed to stimulate creativity, a didactic element is appreciated, and it should allow for many different types of use. Toys’ shapes, colours, materials, and also the different ergonomics for children are an exciting challenge for designers.

BIG SEE Debate: Where should I buy it?

Slovenian design is of high quality, it also has a distinguished tradition and enjoys institutional support by the educational policy as well as museum community. And yet … a lot has changed since the late 20th Century when large Slovenian companies employed quite many designers and successfully marketed their wares to domestic and international customers, thus practically creating people’s everyday environment. Today, there are still occasional stories of success or even a break-through, but a majority of Slovenian design is confined to niches and boutique quantities. In our day and age, however, as we are more aware of local activities’ importance, this can actually turn out to be an advantage. Where and how can one find “Slovenian design” now? In which field is it at its best? Fashion, graphic, industrial, applied arts? What attracts potential buyers? Where can we actually buy the finest pieces?

CEE Design Maturity Trends 2023 – by Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest

The Innovation Center of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest asked nearly 300 business leaders in Hungary, Poland and Slovakia about how they apply design methods in their company operations and their overall perception of the role of design in business. We present the key take-aways of the study as well as an exciting service design case study, which can help business leaders to understand their competitors and think about innovative ways of applying design for business growth.
