Abraham Lincoln said, “The best way to predict the future is to predict it.” Nothing is created without design; just take a look around us – the world and Singapore. Design is found in practically everyday life including but not limited to cities, parks, buildings, products, equipment, systems, structures, food, the human body, etc. Good design is more than aesthetics; it is borne out of a painstaking process of systematic thinking, planning and execution. Good design also serves to enhance societies/communities and improve the environment. For this reason, the Singapore Good Design Mark (SG Mark) exists to promote and advocate good design in every aspect of life.
In collaboration with the prestigious Japan Good Design Mark (G Mark) and strongly supported by the DesignSingapore Council (a part of the Ministry of Communications & Information), the SG Mark has received hundreds of submissions from sectors across the design domain since its inception in 2013. Pertinent information for SG Mark 2018 can be found in the following pages on this microsite.
It is our desire at the Design Business Chamber Singapore to continually champion good design so to make our world a better place for everyone and for the generations to come.

The SG Mark, administered by Design Business Chamber Singapore and supported by DesignSingapore Council, continues to set benchmarks for good design and good business, and hence sought after by enterprises and trusted by discerning customers.
