Celebrate World Industrial Design Day

The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID) invites everyone to celebrate World Industrial Design Day on June 29, 2009.

World Industrial Design Day is a new global initiative to provide professional industrial designers and design enthusiasts with an opportunity to promote a global understanding of design and all that it encompasses.

First declared on June 29, 2007 on the occasion of ICSID's 50th anniversary, the international observance is an occasion to mark the development and evolution of industrial design throughout the course of its history, as well as accentuate industrial design's role in improving the economic, social, cultural and environmental quality of life around the world.

Through a series of international events World Industrial Design Day will present an engaging variety of initiatives highlighting the many contribution designers and academics have made to the discipline of industrial design relative to the study of design theory, research, and practice.
