What about Philippine Design? How do our different Design Industries compare with those from other countries? Can Design mean something for National Development? What is the value of the Philippine brand? How competitive are our designers and creatives? Do we have what it takes? In The State of Philippine Design talk, I shall be asking these questions and showing data from different global sources to pin-point and locate our position in this global gamut of expertise and competencies. In the last few months, I have traveled to different manufacturing facilities, factories, design and crafts SMEs, and design houses in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, asking questions about design and production. I have interviewed several key personalities from the different creative industries in Metro Manila and with them attempted to map out plans to develop Design in the Philippines. Can Design (capital D) mean anything for a developing economy? How can we develop the design education and training in the Philippines? Is Filipino Design global? I hope to see you all on March 15 at Greenbelt as we discuss these questions, realize our common agenda, and forge relationships with fellow Filipinos from the different design industries in our country. —Brian Tenorio
