Shared Services for Designers

Design firms play an important role in providing creative services and solutions that enable their clients to gain a competitive edge. To better support Singapore-based design firms in their day-to-day operations, the DesignSingapore Council has put together a panel of shared services for common corporate functions, such as:

  • Accounting;

  • Human resources (HR);

  • Corporate secretariat; and

  • Public relations

The service providers are offering all designers in Singapore preferential rates that are 20% to 50% lower than their typical fees. We hope this helps you better manage your business while reducing operating costs.

Providing economies of scale helps to strengthen the competitiveness of Singapore-based design firms. This is one of the five strategic thrusts to achieve the Design 2025 Masterplan’s vision of an innovation-driven economy and loveable city by design.
