The Design Guild Mark has been distinguishing the excellent from the ordinary in the design of furnishings for more than 10 years.
The prestigiousDesign Guild Mark
A Design Guild Mark can be awarded, for a design, which is in current volume production. Evidence of this must be provided in terms of the design process and the means of production.
Furthermore, it must be designed:
By any British designer.
By any United Kingdom based design practice.
It is money well spent
Participating in the Design Guild Mark provides a cost effective marketing tool (it costs less than an online banner and a 1/4 page print ad) and can bring you and your brand a greater level of recognition within the industry.
It is an accreditation of quality
The Mark recognises the highest standards in the design of furnishings for volume production, by the finest designers working in Britain, or British designers working abroad. Designs are judged by an independent body of renowned judges who are experts in their respective fields.
It provides great press and social media coverage
Awardees will get exposure to their work in the design world and beyond across a range of platforms and publications.
You’re in good company
Your design will be showcased with that of all our current holders which can be seen on in our awardees gallery www.designguildmark.org.uk/awardees and on the Design Guild Mark Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter accounts.
