ADP is a national association that is dedicated to protecting the rights and interests of design professionals. Our organization’s aims are to improve the legal representation of design professionals in court and the law. Our goal is to provide adequate legal protections for those people who have got professions which are related to the field of design. We hope that through our organization we are able to spread awareness for the various legal troubles and problems which can be potentially faced by designers around the country. We extend all of our services to any artists and designers that are working in a professional environment.
Our organization was founded in the year of 1978. ADP has formed in Barcelona three decades ago. This organization was started due to a clear need to protect the interests of professionals working in the art and design fields. Various legal representation problems, copyright issues, and many other issues related to the law was faced by professional designers. And there was no other organization that would be able to provide those kinds of services as the aid to professional designers. There was a clear need for an organization that would specialize in providing those kinds of services to designers. And because of that clear need, ADP as an organization was born in Barcelona during the 1970’s.
We as an organization, seek to provide defense in the interest of any professional working in the industry. Those designers could either be graphic, industrial, companies, and even design students will be able to make use of our services. We seek to integrate all of those different kinds of professional fields to further the interests of professional designers. Whatever kind of design field that you are working in, you are able to get help to protect your interests. And we are able to provide that kind of help to designers that seek our services.
