A warm welcome to the AGD, the Alliance of German Designers

Our website provides information for designers on a wide range of subjects relevant to their profession. Free-lancers just starting out will find as much of interest here as experienced designers – though part of the website is reserved for AGD members.

Prospective clients can obtain information about the approximately 3,000 AGD members and look for precisely those designers who suit the projects they have in mind.

And of course members of the general public with an interest in design are also welcome. Get to know the AGD.
