DESIGN FOR Today’s world design scenario has radically changed compared to former decades; the demands of the international market of consumers using design objects are directed towards a need for unique, personalized, even almost artisanal products. In this environments the great companies put forward catalogues which exclude self-production and selfpromotion processes, especially for those creatives who interact with products in a manner different from that of the industrial production. The task Design For has taken on since 2012, during its first six editions, has been to facilitate the collaborative flow between designers and companies aimed at creating new concepts and thus amplify the network of the professional relationships of the creatives. For its seventh edition, Design For proposes a radical change in its promotional activity: as of 2019, Design For deals with selecting and promoting the marketing of products, and not just concepts.


This radical change in the Design For activity transforms the network developed in every edition from a communication complex to a commercial one; in this new configuration Design For aims to create sales opportunities for the products and designers published. These opportunities are realized through a series of strategies precisely aimed at this objective and studied ad hoc to provide visibility and distribution at an international level, involving all the actors sitting at the negotiating table. The main and most important strategy to obtain the most tangible results is the capillary distribution of the catalogue. The 2018 edition of Design For will be strategically distributed to: - 5000 international architectural firms, which will have the opportunity to take advantage of a new and heterogeneous catalogue of products to select and include them in the projects related to their activities. - 500 concept and furniture stores all over the world that will act as a physical showcase for the products offered by Design For, allowing their customers to personally experience the quality of the objects. - 2000 international journalists who will be able to mention new products from Design For in thier articles and thus increase the brands visibility on a communicative level. - 2000 bookshops throughout Europe, where Design For can be exhibited and purchased by all design and interior decor enthusiasts. With a total of 9,500 economic entities physically reached by the 2018 edition, Design For is a fundamental commercial tool for those who pursue the objective of marketing their products, independent designer and consolidated companies alike. This objective is achieved through a plurality of commercial actions carried out at 360 degrees, with a strong impact on the market as no aspect of communication and promotion

is neglected. In addition to the international distribution in architectural firms, concept stores, editorial offices and bookshops, a selection of brands will be put directly on sale in the concept stores in partnership with The sale and dissemination of the selected products will be further amplified through the e-commerce Treneed. com, a well-established retailer’s platform for all the design oriented buyers. Naturally, no commercial strategy is successful without effective and constant communication supporting the sales tools in the correct presentation of the products proposed; the communicative effort of Design For 2018 will therefore be carried out to support sales and promotion actions through the massive and specific use of social networks, the creation of ad hoc sponsored campaigns and the constant publication of news and updates according to a precise marketing strategy, developed for this dynamic market. 360 degrees promotion also means activities in exhibitions; Design For 2018 offers opportunities of great value and of guarenteed interest: among all the participants in the 2018 edition, 40 between artists and companies will be selected to show their products during some international design events.
