His Excellency Mr Michael Bryce as Patron of Australian Design Alliance
Feb '11
The Australian Design Alliance is proud and delighted to announce His Excellency Mr Michael Bryce AM, AE as its Patron. The Australian Design Alliance was launched at the Sydney Opera House in late 2010 to boost Australia's productivity, sustainability and innovation through design. It is the peak body for Australian design representing; architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, object and graphic design, fashion design, visual arts, craft and media arts, design awards and design education and research.

Mr Bryce gave a passionate speech at the launch when he said, “(The Alliance) is the beginning of a voice that could lift this country from its dependence on other people's ideas, from its apathy about the built environment, from a sense of us lagging behind in the innovation and creativity spectrum that some significant countries … have already established.”

The Alliance is pursuing the formulation of a national design policy linked to the innovation agenda and a number of key initiatives that will demonstrate the capacity of good design to contribute to improved economic growth and better outcomes across the full spectrum of public policy.

Mr Bryce's wealth of knowledge and expertise will be invaluable to the Alliance as it undertakes this work. Michael Bryce is an architect and designer acknowledged in Australia and overseas for his distinguished work in graphic, urban and environmental design. Mr Bryce has been described by Indesign Magazine as a design “luminary” and a design “catalyst”. In 2006, he was inducted into the Australian Design Hall of Fame.

The Australian Design Alliance represents a substantial constituency. The combined national membership of the member organisations is in excess of 20,000 and they represent a constituency of almost 80,000 design practitioners.

ACDC is a group of peak organisations from all states and territories in Australia that represent the professional craft and design sector.

Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA) is the national organisation for professional graphic designers. Founded in 1988 it operates through state councils throughout Australia. AGDA Councillors are supported by a national office and a National Executive Director.

Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) is the non-profit professional institute formed in 1967 to grow and enhance the profession of landscape architecture and to provide leadership in the creation of meaningful, equitable and sustainable environments throughout Australia. Key programs are the AILA national and state web sites, a national quarterly newsletter Landmark, and state newsletters, national conferences, national and state awards.

Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT) supports artists and creative practitioners engaging with science and technology, within Australia and beyond. Its innovative program includes immersive residencies, professional development labs, online research tools, publications, seminars and workshops.
