About IDC

 

With its roots as the national meeting of the Industrial Designers Society of America, the IDC has grown into something much bigger. Today, we recognize that our creative community is not binary and the role of design is constantly shifting. Once siloed disciplines now overlap and blur with fluidity.

 

IDC 2021 is a platform for amplifying the unique and bold voice of industrial design while celebrating the deep interconnection with other creative disciplines.

 

IDC 2021 is centered on the goal of convening a diverse group of the brightest minds in design, innovation, and creativity. As always, this conversation is open to as many creative perspectives as possible.

 

Our interest is in developing a shared dialogue that advances our ability to collaborate and magnifies the impact of our work. 

Who is IDC for?

 

Industrial Designers, UX Designers, UI Designers, Service Designers, Speculative Designers, Futurists, Visual & Brand Designers, Graphic Designers, Experience Designers, Design Educators, Design Managers, Design Engineers, and everyone else in between!

What to expect from IDC

We've put together an eclectic mixture of content with the goal of providing inspiration, challenging assumptions, and advancing the conversation about what design can contribute to the world's future.

Without leaving the comfort of your home, learn from design leaders who will present their work, passions, and authentic stories with hundreds of designers from around the globe.
