Form Journal (the proud voice of design and architecture in South Australia) by The Adelaide Review has written a fantastic article about Adelaide Design Link (ADL).
“The Adelaide Review celebrates and acknowledge incredible projects being produced in our state”. “Design is an ever present component in our daily lives, and the demand for smart design is higher than ever.”
“In an increasingly complex world, the need for innovation remains at the forefront of a designer’s mind, and as a challenge to be met. Excitingly, as history has shown, our state has been a catalyst for innovation, and a place to test new ideas.”
The article “A worthy alliance” by Nathan James Crane outlines how Adelaide’s design industry has a new international perspective thanks to a business-led initiative by Adelaide Design Link (ADL).
“Adelaide’s story is one of livability, because it has been planned very well. We are still one of the top five liveable cities in the world.” “There are a lot of good design-related things happening here. The essence of the model is that we can look at certain situation or challengers overseas and expand the supply chin and get more South Australian businesses involved.” “What ADL does, is to shift the idea of design and architecture from being about style or aesthetics, to being a business tool.”
“ADL demonstrates another way in which South Australian design industry can offer solution to the world. Through our ability to connect and our size, the innovations borne out of these collaborations mean our state not only becomes a platform for the transformation of other cities internationally, but international cities might embrace our inherent liability as a cultural offering”.
As a member of Adelaide Design Link (ADL), we are thrilled to be a part of this integrated trans-disciplinary collaboration which includes approximately 20 businesses, involving some 300 employees with a combination turnover of approximately $60 million.
