It's an exciting time to be a designer in Indianapolis! The design community here is tight-knit and growing rapidly. The IDSA Indianapolis chapter is the network that links design professionals (industrial, graphic, user experience, web), innovative professionals (marketing, engineering, manufacturing, business), businesses (from local consultancies to Fortune 500s), suppliers (rapid prototyping shops, model shops, materials providers), students, and even design-focused non-profits (design education, community revitalization) across the state by providing meaningful training, networking and relationship-building opportunities, and exposure for the design profession. We explore how Design is affected by many other industries, such as Engineering, Graphic Design & Branding, Manufacturing, Fine Arts, and Entrepreneurship.
We invite you to connect with us through social media at Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and to sign up for our Newsletter. And, if you are interested in becoming a member or joining our leadership team, we'd love to have you! Please contact us at IDSA.Indiana@gmail.com.

IDSA Indiana's Summer Architecture Tour
We finished up July with a small but exciting architecture tour in Columbus, Indiana. We met at the visitor's center to watch a short film about the history of the area and then toured the Cleo Rogers Memorial Library designed in 1969 by I.M. Pei. After checking out Eliel Saarinen's First Christian Church right across the street we boarded a bus for a trip around town and got to stop and check out several other buildings.
