The Design Society is a non-profit organization run by volunteers and is dedicated to the goal of raising the general standard of design in Singapore. The focus is on Applied Graphic Design and its contributions to Singapore visual culture and society. The Society hopes to connect with and inspire local designers and engage the public through greater understanding and appreciation for good design. Armed with four main missions — Document and Archive; Promote and Educate; Celebrate and Recognise; Community and Outreach, the Society seeks to consistently sustain and promote a more vibrant design culture in Singapore. As a non-profit organization dependent on donations, all proceeds from our events go towards the running of more events for the community.
