GDC Consulting


Shaping the change.


Breaking new ground

Distinctive design, a strong brand and innovative methods can be success factors to stand out from competitors in the market.
The German Design Council supports you and your company on this path: we accompany you in the evaluation and analysis phase and thus explore your potential. In our network we will find the right experts – individually and personally. And what's more, we ensure quality assurance throughout the entire advisory process.

Consulting focus


We take your brand up to the next level!

Disruptive changes in society also bring changes in brand management. Even established brands are faced with the challenge of reacting to economic, ecological, social, cultural and political influential factors. Strategic brand management pays off: We support you in brand analysis, strategy, positioning and realisation. We always have the right specialists for your needs available.


Success by design!

Good design is crucial for the success of a company. A clear design strategy, the corporate design of a brand and its product design is a means of differentiation in the market. In audits and workshops we identify your pain points and potentials. We bring you together with the design experts and strategists of our network and accompany your path through all phases towards a future-oriented company.

As a neutral competence centre, the German Design Council supports companies in the successful development of brand and design strategies. The service includes advice and support on strategy, conception and communication as well as on internationalisation, the communication of basic principles for targeted implementation with design partners and networking with the right experts.
