Vision Statement As a key voice of the profession, IDSA advances the positive impact of design on business and society while directly benefiting members by evolving into the world's most effective design organization.
The IDSA Gianninoto Graduate Scholarship is a $44,000 fund originally established with a $25,000 contribution by the late Francesco Gianninoto, a US package designer who began his career as a commercial artist in 1920 with no formal training and became an art director at BBD&O.
IDSA's Board of Directors may confer, by a two-thirds majority vote, a fellowship membership to a member in good standing who has earned the special respect and affection of the membership through distinguished service to the industrial design profession.
