Design Research Institute

The Design Research Institute was established in February 1, 1997, aiming to promote the quantitative expansion and qualitative standards of design, which is one of the key factors of national power in the information society. The purpose of the Design Research Institute is to support and lead various researches to pioneer new changes in the field of design to contribute to the development of Hankyong National University, local communities, and national industries. Major activities include research, education, and academic-industry cooperation activities in various fields of research, such as corporate and brand identity, public relations materials for corporate communication (printed materials, images, videos, etc), product packaging design, display design, and Homepage development for companies and products. The Design Research Institute is also contributing to faculty researches and academic-industry cooperation by participating in joint projects with small/medium companies in Anseong, Small/Medium Business Administration of Gyeonggi-do, and Rural Development Administration of Gyeonggi-do. By jointly developing a Korean-style chocolate pattern design with Foodtec Korea, a venture business located at Hankyong National University Business Incubation Center, we won the Bronze Prize at the 1st Gyeonggi-do Best Tourist Souvenir Competition in June 2000, the Gold Prize (Prime Minister Award) at the 3rd Korea Best Tourist Souvenir Competition in August 2000, and was selected as the official cultural merchandise for the FIFA World Cup in August 2001. In addition, the Design Research Institute encouraged students to create design-related business ideas at the 2001 Design Camp, an extracurricular program in the School of Design, and presented them at the 2001 Venture Business Road Show of the Small/Medium Business Administration to introduce the outstanding ideas and product development capacities of the students at Hankyong National University.
