AGS supports overall management of the Distributed Design Market Platform.
In an ever-changing world, innovation is not an option, it is a necessity. Design and designer’s role are evolving and adapting to a new digitized world. We see a rise of a new kind of designer that challenges how goods are produced and how customers relate to their products. The maker movement is a loose global movement of individuals who focus on making physical projects but with a digital layer and digital tools, often with collaborative open source and processes. Makers often meet and work in global networks and communities (fablabs, makerspaces and hackspaces) which provide access to a local and global community of like-minded people. We call the union of these trends Distributed Design.
