Total number of design graduates It includes: graphic/communication design, interior design, industrial/product design, digital/web/media design, fashion design. Total number of WIPO design registrations WIPO was the only source considered because it represents an international route for design registration. Total number of WIPO trademarks WIPO was the only source considered because it registrations represents an international route for trademark registration. Total number of design firms It includes: graphic/communication design, interior design, industrial/product design, digital/web/media design, fashion design.

CONCLUSIONS There are not enough approaches to measure the impact of creaHvity and design linked to the innovaHon capacity of a city. Yes, we can measure creaHvity, design and innovaHon with exisHng frameworks but the picture is not complete…you have to live the city. ExisHng frameworks does not capture the whole creaHve spirit of a city. A lot of things to do but without loosing our origins.
