Although China, Japan, and Korea all have design support centers that were founded and are controlled by the central government, they have been used in the service of strategies that are unique to each country. To begin with, Korea and Japan have design histories that are considerably longer than China's. China is also coming into design awareness at a much different global point of time than the other two. This paper compares these and other differences: the consistency with which each government supports design policy, how many design patents the country grants each year, the job prospects of students graduating from design schools, and how well award-winning design work is promoted on the market. Sang-Gyeun Ahn is an assistant professor at the University of Washington, and Jeong-Man Song is a manager in the strategy and research division at KIDP in Seoul (and currently a research scholar at the University of Washington).
