For over 50 years, the Industrial Designers Society of America has worked to advance the practice of industrial design through education, information, community and advocacy.  Our roots stretch to the beginning of the profession and our members are, and have been, some of the most celebrated industrial designers of all time. Today, we exist as a global voice for industrial design within a broad ecosystem of design disciplines and we celebrate the cross-functional overlap of many creative fields.
