Welcome to the Industrial Designers Society of America St. Louis Chapter. Our diversified chapter is a compilation of professional industrial design practitioners each with design backgrounds ranging from industrial design, graphic, media, architecture, engineering, set design, and fine art. We provide information, advocacy, education, and community for designers within the St. Louis region.
We seek to offer services to the professional community through our event programming, which includes our professional lecture series, regular meet-ups and St. Louis Design Week, where we present examples from Industrial Design businesses within St. Louis as well as foster and promote industrial design practices.
Despite having no dedicated I.D. educational program within St. Louis, the city itself is a rich cross-section of design professionals. This environment enables our chapter to uniquely thrive in service to the city and the region as a promoter for industrial design.
Our community outreach has ranged in support of groups such as Paraquad, Almost Home, and Luminary Center for the Arts. We have also offered mentoring at schools such as Southern Illinois University - Carbondale, Webster University and Washington University and include an annual regional student design competition geared toward collegiate level design.
