Since 2003 we have grown into a respected organization with a great deal of experience – running our own design shop and gallery in Prague, organizing competitions for designers, helping companies to apply design to manufacturing processes and turning design theory into practice.
Working with local illustrators, graphic designers, ceramicists, fashion and jewellery designers, and industrial designers, it presents a great mix of fresh talent alongside Czech icons such as Jiří Pelcl and Maxim Velčovský (Don’t know them? Check them out!). The shop has one of the widest selections of backpacks and a wonderful jewellery collection, as well as beautiful toys and books for kids, making it the ideal one-stop-shop for all your holiday gifts (and treats for yourself).
DESIGN FOR BUSINESSES
Design helps companies to distinguish themselves from the competition and bring creativity to the company as a whole. We specialise in consultations with companies which seek to apply design principles to their practice. We organise design competitions, tenders and open calls on behalf of companies, businesses and the public sector. The education of businesses and assisting them with all aspects of design is a key service offered by CZECHDESIGN.
We work on an international level and have experience with grant projects such as the European Social Fund, Grundtvig Multilateral Projects, Youth in Action, eea grants and others, for which we organised local and international projects including: Why Design? (2013, a booklet about improving and understanding mutual communication between designers and businesses), Design for All (2011, 2012, a series of creative workshops for the public and designers) and The Future of Design (2014 - 2016 the annual series of lectures and workshops that deal with the field of design, its current status and future challenges in pan-European context).
MODEL YOUNG PACKAGE COMPETITION
The international competition Model Young Package is focused on packaging design. The competition was founded in 1996 and now annually attracts hundreds of participants from all over the world and is the biggest competition of it's kind in the world, accepting prototypes of packaging in 1:1 scale. Previous winners of the prize have since become renowned designers in companies like TON, Tescoma, NASA or Electrolux. We help to discover new talents and spread awareness about ecological packaging options.
Applying design principles to practice is essential for us, so we provide company consultations and organize tenders and design competitions.
