Affiliate Fellow (aCSDf)

As a professional body the Society recognises the role of those who underpin the profession but do not actually practice design. These include design educators, researchers, managers, historians, authors, etc. whose expertise and involvement is essential for the development of any profession in a relevant and sustainable manner. The Society provides a platform for such professionals to influence the professional design agenda and develop the profession for the benefit of the wider community and for their own personal field of practice.
