What are the roles for graduates and early­-career designers in Singapore's creative industries? How can they contribute to developing the innovation-­led economy, and how might this evolve in the future? What are employers looking for in fresh graduates?

Last Friday at the official launch of Singapore Design Week 2017, Minister for Communications and Information Dr Yaacob Ibrahim announced DesignSingapore Council's new development plan for skills and jobs in Singapore's Design sector.
