The State of Design has created a new award to recognise outstanding design leadership across the community.

Design leadership resides in many do mains of our society and it is realised in both tangible and intangible ways. Design leaders are often visionaries through their roles as CEO’s, directors, managers or chairs who say yes to the creators, designers and innovators in their midst.
