While designers start with similar skillsets early in the career, we adapt and grow based on the job need, and we may become professionals in a different niche. This survey was gathered to be a piece of helpful information and a resource for our professional community and young designers.
IDSA is saddened by the loss of J. Budd Steinhilber, FIDSA (1924-2021), a towering figure in industrial design history and a friend, mentor, and inspiration to many. Budd served on IDSA's Board of Directors as Treasurer/Secretary and served three times on the IDEA Jury. He was inducted into IDSA's Academy of Fellows in 1984 and won IDSA's Personal Recognition Award in 1991.
