Designers’ Inquiry is an investigation into the social and economic profile of who today defines him or herself as “designer”. The project was launched in April 2012 through an anonymous online questionnaire, which in two months collected the responses of 767 designers operating in Italy. The publication Designers’ Inquiry is the account of the data and the testimonies collected.


The publication will be for sale* in printed form at Careof DOCVA, a space for contemporary cultural production at the Fabbrica del Vapore. Furthermore, we will be roving around the city to distribute the report in various locations with a mobile stall. Keep an eye open for the flag:


* The price of the booklet (A4, printed on Risograph) is 3€ for one copy and 4€ for two. The raised money will be used to cover the production costs.
