Design discipline has played an essential role in economic policies in several countries. In the UK, it is one of the highest-grossing industries. Cities throughout the World, including Shenzhen, Taipei, and Turin, as well as Bangkok, brand themselves as cities of design, and thus new destinations for investments and tourism. More than a few industrial designers, fashion designers, and architects are responsible for iconic products that have permanently changed the way we live. On many occasions, the design discipline has been widely used in political campaigns and to communicate social issues.
