The first Women in Industrial Design Show, sponsored by WID of IDSA, is coming to the Bay Area in June 2014 as part of San Francisco Design Week.
For one night only, the show will feature 15 designers in two categories: Up+Coming and Professionals. The Work can be conceptual, in full production, or anything in between. WID’s hope is to showcase a wide scope of industrial design work by women in various stages of their careers. It’s a great opportunity to showcase your work and meet your peers during the excitement of SF Design Week.
The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) is excited to announce its 2014 International Conference, The Exchange, taking place August 13-16, 2014 in Austin, Texas at the Austin Hilton. This year’s theme, The Exchange, highlights the process at the very core of what we do as designers. Through the innovative processes of design, something of value is given and something of value is received, advancing a current condition or experience to a new, expanded state.
The Design Foundation needs your help to stay strong! Give back to your profession and help support current and aspiring industrial designers. Your contribution helps fund the Foundation's current and future initiatives.
