A unique opportunity to engage with a global audience.
As the world heals and begins its recovery in the wake of a crippling pandemic, designers can play a vital role in rebuilding and restoring an equitable quality of life for all citizens.
IDC invites creatives from all disciplines to convene and inspire one another with our passions and imaginations. Now more than ever, it is critical that designers use their unique talents towards creating a world that will be better in every way for future generations.
Join us from the comfort of your home for a continuous 24-hour stretch of all-new design content. This fast-paced and knowledge-packed event will feature an expansive collection of presentations, breakout sessions, workshops, panel discussions, and side-bar social interactions, all happening in a carefully choreographed progression.
24 hours of uninterrupted design inspiration from around the world!
Don't worry about missing a thing. All sessions will be recorded and made available exclusively to IDC ticket holders.
Celebrate the diversity, overlap and undeniable power of design.
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 that the role of design is constantly shifting. Once siloed disciplines now overlap and blur.
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, Design Managers, Service Designers, Speculative Designers, Design Leaders, Visual & Brand Designers, Graphic Designers, Experience Designers, Design Educators, UI Designers, Design Engineers, Futurists & Visionaries, and everyone in between!
What to expect from IDC
We are assembling an eclectic mix of content with the goals of providing inspiration, challenging assumptions, and advancing the conversation about what design can contribute to the world's future.
