About Us

We empower design talent and catalyse business innovation and economic transformation by design. Ours is a community for design practitioners, professionals and businesses that want to transform through design. Operating under the Vietnam Department of Industry and Trade, we collaborate with leading international experts and institutions to continuously drive designthinking, innovation and sustainability to create a better future.

Established in 2018, the VMARK Vietnam Design Week & Design Awards are the initiatives organized by the VDAS Design Association. We aim to grow and nurture the Vietnamese design industry by enhancing the design community through education, awareness, and experience. Step by step, we have been steadily building up Vietnam's design identity with the sole purpose of being recognized globally by the creative world around us.


VMARK VIETNAM DESIGN WEEK also marks the first time Vietnam joins Global’s Creative Industries. We support the local Creative Design Community on the way to redefine a NEW IMAGE of the NATION to the world by officially launching the VMARK VIETNAM GOOD DESIGN AWARDS.
