World Industrial Design Day 2011

How has the discipline of industrial design impacted the way you lead your life? In celebration of the 4th annual World Industrial Design Day on 29 June 2011, the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid) invites designers and design enthusiasts from around the globe to spread awareness and initiate events reflecting this years theme:

Industrial Design: How does it improve your life?

Theme

Selected by the Icsid Executive Board, this theme was chosen to gain the public's perspective on how industrial design impacts their daily lives. Furthermore, by asking the question "How does industrial design improve your life?" Icsid aims to start a public conversation that will showcase and bring awareness to the crucial and ever-present work being achieved by industrial designers throughout the world.
