Ask to Design is a marketplace aimed at facilitating professional encounters between companies and designers in Piedmont, where companies can browse the projects of more than 200 design studios and freelance designers and post an ad, or Call to Design, to find the designer most suited to their needs. Thanks to a system of filters and tags, it is possible to search and identify designers according to their skills: audio-video, staging, digital, graphics, interior, product, services and strategy.
Ask to Design is realized by Circolo del Design and Turin Chamber of Commerce, with the scientific partnership of Politecnico di Torino, to encourage new collaborations between the business world and designers of the Piedmont territory, building a solid network of professionals and skills.
Besides being a marketplace, Ask To Design is also a service system and a meeting opportunity to promote design and project culture in the business environment. Contemporary challenges require innovative solutions and commercial and production activities are called to rethink products, services and processes from an organizational, technical, design and communication point of view. Design and the figure of the designer are therefore becoming increasingly relevant in the definition of corporate strategy. Ask to Design therefore has a twofold purpose: on the one hand to enhance the design community in the area, and on the other, to raise awareness and train SMEs on the tools and methods of design.
