Corporations increasingly view graphic design as a core strategic business competency in a highly competitive climate, and they are challenging their in-house designers to supply far more than a service or support function. Their new role is to provide sound solutions to real-world business pressures. Managing Corporate Design addresses--head-on--these new challenges in a highly practical manner. Peter L. Phillips writes specifically to corporate in-house graphic design groups searching for positive, accessible methods to better establish their group as a core strategic business competency. This guide covers: Developing a framework Assessing the value you offer Recognizing the business role of design Communicating in a corporate language Gaining and forming business relationships Developing design briefs and approval presentations Managing and hiring staff Incorporating creativity Overcoming obstacles and moving forward!
