IDSA’s Gianninoto Graduate Scholarship was originally established with a $25,000 contribution by the late Francesco Gianninoto, FIDSA, a US package designer who was a founder of the Package Design Council and president of Gianninoto Associates from 1932-1983. Two of his most famous designs were the Marlboro cigarette package (mid-1950s) and “Elsie Daisy,” the Borden Cow. Gianninoto was an honorary professor at Western Connecticut State University where he taught communication through design.
DESIGN FOUNDATION UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP GUIDELINES
The Design Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity supporting design education and social responsibility. Part of its mission is to advance education in design by funding scholarships. We are currently accepting applications for these scholarships.
The recipient will receive an award to be used in the completion of industrial design degree work in the 2014 – 2015 school year. Awards are based solely on the excellence of the work students submit.
LEO the Maker Prince teaches children (both young and old) about 3D printing by following Carla and LEO's journey through Brooklyn. LEO is a walking, talking robot who has the magical ability to to print (in plastic) any object that Carla draws. The other robots have their own special capabilities: H1-H0 prints in metal, Sinclair-10 can find and print objects from a huge catalog of designs, and the others (including AL1C3-D, IRIS-7, and NiXie) have unique talents, too.
The Web has revolutionized so many things, but has only just begun to change what really matters—the physical world. The things you pick up, drive, sit on, and rely on to live your life haven’t been affected by the digital revolution. Until now.
The Art of Product Design explains the rise of Open Engineering, a way of breaking down barriers and taking advantage of web-based communities, knowledge, and tools to accelerate the design and manufacturing processes.
Brief: SkyCaddie’s ground breaking rangefinders have revolutionized the way serious golfers approach the course; GPS data and information on thousands of courses around the world provide them advanced support for their games. The SGX Rangefinder has become a favorite in the industry but was in need of a new design language to communicate its cutting-edge technology and sophistication and keep SkyCaddie a leader in their market with a premium proposition.
It’s never been easier to develop a prototype and get potential customers excited about a design. But turning passion and concepts into finished products at consumer scale is still really difficult. Matthew Sargeant of Hatch Hub aims to help designers through that process to create amazing products that have real meaning.
