World Design Capital Adelaide Bid COORDINATION

Department of State Development – Adelaide, Australia
Facilitation, Strategy, Delivery

The South Australian Department of State Development led the charge in the preparation of a bid to see Adelaide nominated as the World Design Capital in 2018. A prestigious city promotion program, it is awarded each year to a different city in the world by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (icsid). Bidding for 2018, Adelaide engaged a broad consortium and the design industry to develop this bid.

Left Bank Co. helped with the coordination and the writing of the content itself, liaising with key stakeholders and contributors on a daily basis and also advising on the creative direction led by local design agency Rodeo. This project was a collective effort and required discipline and organisation of key individuals to ensure all the components of this bid came together harmoniously.
