Australian Design Alliance

The Australian Design Alliance [AdA] is a strategic partnership of Australia’s peak design bodies across a range of disciplines, including design, architecture, urban planning, craft and the arts.

The formation of the AdA was stimulated by the perceived need for governments to recognise design as a potent means of realising policy objectives such as digital technological innovation, education, health, crime prevention, construction, environmental sustainability and transport.

Similar moves to establish peak design bodies are being made internationally in Europe, the US and Asia.

The Australian Design Alliance is concerned that Australia should keep pace with the rest of the world in generating creative capital through innovative ideas, product differentiation and systems effectiveness.

In addition to developing a culture of design in Australia to strengthen economic competitiveness, innovation and sustainability, the ADA aims to increase levels of Australian design advocacy, research, policy development, resources and collaboration.

The combined national membership of the AdA is in excess of 20,000 and represents a constituency of almost 80,000 design practitioners.
