A 24 HOUR GLOBAL VIRTUAL EVENT
September 17-18, 2020
Learn from the brightest minds in our industry!
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 the role of design is constantly shifting. Once siloed disciplines now overlap and blur with fluidity.
IDC 2020 is a platform for amplifying the unique and bold voice of industrial design while celebrating the deep interconnection with other creative disciplines.
IDC 2020 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!
