New York City

The New York City (NYC) chapter of IDSA represents a vibrant and diverse design community steeped in immersive expereinces that attract innovators, entrepreneurs, artists and other creative talents across the gamut. The chapter frequently works with design studios and chapters of other design associations to maximize networking opportunities and bring greater understanding among the professions.
