JCD AWARDS 2017 - ENTER YOUR PROJECTS!

ABOUT JCD

Founded in 1963, the predecessor of the Japan Commercial Environmental Design Association (JCD) was once known as the Japanese Society of Commercial Space Designers.  The society was established under the increasing demand for improvement in commercial environmental designs prior to the Tokyo Olympics in 1964.  Since then, the social and design atmosphere in Japan and around the world have changed drastically.  JCD provides a professional platform to enable the exchange of ideas between commercial and environmental designers, and continues to contribute back to society through the promotion and enhancement of cultural values.  JCD is an organisation that consists of interior designers, architects, spatial designers, lighting designers and graphic designers, etc., and serves as a platform for diverse individuals, both domestic and foreign, to interact and broaden their horizons on design perspectives. 

In waves of change and influence, JCD has constantly produced campaigns that have continued to achieve its mission.  JCD endeavours the international exchange of knowledge between members of the industry, for designers to question one’s own achievements in order to push one’s limits, to share their skills and expertise to the world, to receive high acclamation in return and to irrevocably contribute back to society.
