Excellent design is now recognized as essential for business success. Design thinking is equally beneficial in the business world and social domain. This spring IDSA will explore the changing and challenging landscape of design from five different angles at five District Design Conferences held across the US between March 26 and May 1.
Our friends at the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) have launched a new FREE webinar series highlighting international design initiatives that serve as emerging case studies in successful design models.
They delivered the first presentation of the new Learning from Abroad series on Mar. 19, and it featured a conversation with finalists of the 2013-2014 World Design Impact Prize. You can play it back here:
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.
