    Abstract

    With the acceleration and increasing evolution of China’s economy, its cultural, scientific and technological bases are witnessing dramatic transformation; as a result, the under- standing and usage of design is also changing in its role and identity as a strategic tool for economic growth. Design has transcended as an aesthetic and practical implementation tool, moving away from usage as a mere stylistic activity. It is also moving beyond the realms of the culture and creative industries, boosting broader business activity and performance, and underpinning national economic growth and social innovation.
