    In our paper, design is considered briefly in different contexts – product and manufacture, service and retail – and for different purposes: product design and corporate communications. Links with marketing are made, essentially by examining how design affects elements of the marketing mix. Finally, evidence is presented to support the argument that design makes a positive contribution to business performance. In other words, design investment affects the bottom line, but only if design is integrated into the business process and managed well. Our paper concludes with a general model of design management. This model is not intended to be prescriptive but to provide a checklist of the range of activities and information that is required to manage design effectively.
