Winter INNOVATION Rewinds Design

It’s a big year for IDSA—as the Society marks its 50th anniversary and the International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) celebrates its 35th year. The upcoming winter issue of INNOVATION magazine takes a closer look at the people, products and events that have helped put IDSA on the map. IDSA’s flagship publication will focus on 50 notable IDSA members; 35 years of IDEA winners; and 50 notable moments in IDSA history.

A committee consisting of members interested in design history is guest editing the issue.

  • Carroll Gantz, FIDSA, who joined the Society when it was The American Society of Industrial Design in the early 1960s;
  • Professor Bret H. Smith, IDSA, an IDSA member since 1985, teaching industrial design history courses at Auburn University;
  • Vicki Matranga, H/IDSA, who joined IDSA in 1997 and has served as designs programs coordinator for the International Housewares Association since 1992.

The same committee was instrumental in crafting a look back at industrial design that was on display at the International Conference in Seattle August 19–22, 2015.
