The Atlanta Chapter of IDSA has more than 350 student and professional members from Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee.  We are dedicated to sharing and elevating the creativity of the South through a number regular activities and events, and proud to say that Atlanta is the site of the IDSA International Design Conference 2017 (#IDSA17Atlanta). Register now and see News & Events below for the latest updates.

Some of the activities and events that the Atlanta IDSA Chapter has sponsored include a number of lectures, studio tours, collaborations with other design professionals and community outreach. One of our signature events is called Atlanta Design Outreach, matching professional designers with high school students to engage in a unique opportunity to design and produce a prototype. This program has been extremely successful and has helped students discover their talents, learn new skills understand industrial design and the design process. 

There are a number of collegiate chapters associated with the Atlanta Chapter: Auburn University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Savannah College of Art & Design.  We encourage a strong partnership between the student chapters and the Atlanta Chapter that includes portfolio reviews and other educational and social events. 

We invite you to join us for inspiring and fun educational and social events.
