ABSTRACT

Korea‘s design promotion system has been driven and managed for economic growth. In the late 1960', with the goals of increasing exports, Korea Design & Packaging Center was established, as the first institute for design promotion. However, design promotion system which was manipulated for economic growth is no longer effective in this era of culture, and the cultural industry of twenty first century should go beyond the notion of classic design. Thus Korea's design promotion system should also undergo revision from industry-oriented promotion system. The purpose of the article is to explore the value of current design promotion policy in Korea. This article asserts that to be the most effective, design promotion policy and statutes in Korea should be changed. In order to complete this task, we should establish an independent institution such as Design Council in Britain or design promotion agencies will be unified. If coordination between ministries and agencies are really difficult, we shall have adopted the French design promotion model based on mutual cooperation. In exchange for the services provided by our designers are properly priced and the concept of ‘best value’ should bo introduced to designer's service contract, so that the law should be amended.
