As first announced to our academic community on March 26 (via our Educator Update email), we are pleased to provide a virtual platform for graduating 2020 senior industrial design students to increase visibility of their work and assist in their transition to the professional design community. The IDSA Industrial Design Senior Show will be completely free and open to any graduating industrial design senior.
Four IDSA student members won top prizes in the International Housewares Association’s 27th annual Student Design Competition, and four more IDSA student members received honorable mentions. Two IDSA members also served on the Competition jury.
Please use this crowd-sourced information center as a reference and resource for designing from home and working remotely. We hope this page will help you more easily and successfully design, innovate, communicate and collaborate with your team in a remote setting.
IDSA's Executive Director, Chris Livaudais, took some time during IDC 2019 in Chicago to provide an update to membership on the state of the Society. We use this annual opportunity to share important information with membership in a public forum. The full presentation is shown in the video below. Highlights from this presentation include:

IDSA has embarked on a bold and progressive transformation. We stand at a moment in time where nearly every aspect of the Society is under increasing pressure for time and attention from people like you. While these trends are certainly not new, the way in which IDSA must respond to them is. This position demands that IDSA think critically and creatively about how we deliver a meaningful membership experience to you as a member, as well as for our extended community of designers across the country.
