IDSA Makes the Connections

Mark Your Calendars for the 2016 IDSA DDCs

Feb 25 2016 - 2:15pm

From coast-to-coast in April 2016, IDSA will host five District Design Conferences (DDCs), providing hundreds of industrial design students and professionals with the opportunity to meet face-to-face, explore the latest developments in design and related fields, secure career advice, recognize the next generation of designers in the IDSA Student Merit Awards and tour top-rated design institutions in the United States.

Hear speakers from some of the biggest names in business such as Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, GoPro, Bose, Philips, Whirlpool, SC Johnson, Bissell, Cinnabon and MailChimp, and from top design firms such as Whipsaw, Michael Graves, Pensa, TEAMS, Formation and Continuum. Mark your calendars now with these themes, dates and locations. Register to attend one or more of the DDCs based on your interests:

The DDC chairs, who are part of IDSA’s Board of Directors, are pledging to challenge and reinvigorate attendees. “If there was ever a perfect time to unleash the raw power of the fundamentals of industrial design, it’s now!” says Badve, who is hosting his fifth conference. “Industrial design always has had a meaningful position. From now on, it’s only going to be more strategic. We should proudly declare, “We are industrial designers!”
