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.
Not long after the global COVID-19 pandemic took hold in the United States, members of the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) began laser-cutting and 3D-printing face masks for healthcare workers, due to a nationwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE).
During this uneasy time of living with and working through the global COVID-19 pandemic, leveraging our connections and unique skills as industrial designers to help others has become all the more important.
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.
