Promoting UK design expertise

We’re delighted to have collaborated with the Department for International Trade to launch the next two publications in the One-Stop-Shop on Design series of publications that each shine a spotlight on an area of design that the UK excels in, and which in turn supports an extensive UK based supply chain.

healthcare-front-coverThe books make the compelling case for why manufacturers, brand owners and start-ups should tap into the UK’s end-to-end design-led leadership in the areas of Healthcare, and Food and Drink.

In a time when revenue and profits are critically important to the wellbeing of our industrial landscape, the DBA is keen to make the case for product and service transformation that can bring about increases in revenue and decreases in manufacturing costs, to name just two of the benefits of using designers.

food-drink-front-coverThe UK has the largest integrated healthcare system in the world with its expertise in demand globally. And we boast extraordinary levels of innovation in food and drink, and the wherewithal to manufacture and package products to very high standards. And creatively, we are the originators of unique purposeful brands that stand the test of time, from start-up, to scale-up, to sell up.

UK Export Finance now makes buying from the UK easier, and this, coupled with the commercial expertise and support of the Department of International Trade’s commercial officers in more than 100 counties close the circle on a UK offer that will take buyers from concept to capitalisation.

exporting_is_greatpngThese publications were funded by the Department for Digital Culture Media and Sport in collaboration with the Department for International Trade. They form part of a promotional campaign being undertaken by the DBA to showcase UK design in international markets. They form part of the collateral used by the GREAT Britain campaign which showcases all four corners of our nation to inspire the world and encourage people to do business in the UK.

Distributed internationally, these publications are free to download and distribute as pdfs (see below). Please help yourself.

If you’d like to contact any of the businesses featured you will find their details near the end of each book. Alternatively, contact the DBA, and we’ll help you with your enquiry. E:
