International Design Alliance (IDA) Unites Design Societies

The International Design Alliance (IDA) is a collaboration between the international organizations representing design. The Alliance was created by founding partners Icsid (International Council for Societies of Industrial Design) and Icograda (International Council of Graphic Design Associations) and ratified by their respective General Assemblies in September 2003. In September 2008, the IDA welcomed the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI) to the alliance as the third partner.

The alliance is based on the desire of its partners to "do together what they cannot do alone," concentrating on opportunities arising from multidisciplinary collaboration.
