TO BE THE ENGINE OF THE JAMAICAN DESIGN INDUSTRY

The Jamaica Design Association serves to refine education in design and make the same accessible to Jamaicans; create standards of professional conduct within its members, nurture the emergence of the design community and; contribute to the wider Jamaican society through design.

 

We intend to do this with 3 steps.
