Icsid announces first 'World Industrial Design Day' on June 29, 2008

Jul '07
The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid)announced its intent to launch on June 29, 2008 the first “World Industrial Design Day” recognising the profession of industrial design to be observed the world over.

Throughout 2007, a series of events are being hosted in collaboration with various Icsid Members around the world to celebrate the inception of the organisation on June 29, 1957.

These 'Icsid 50'events are a testament to the industry milestones of the past fifty years, as well as to the contemporary vision and forward-looking direction of the profession in the years to come.

During the closing ceremony held on Friday, June 29, 2007 for the Icsid Interdesign hosted by George Brown College at the Toronto Centre for the Arts, Icsid President Prof. Dr. Peter Zec announced on the occasion of the organisation's golden anniversary, that the creation and implementation of the 'World Industrial Design Day' will reflect on both the importance of industrial design in our world, as well as on the organisation that has played a defining role in the development of the profession.

“An annual day of observance will be a catalyst in our endeavour to raise awareness of industrial design on a global scale,” stated Dr. Zec. “It is our objective that this all encompassing event will provide professional industrial designers and design enthusiasts around the globe with a channel to engage the general public in the acute realisation of the merits of design and its economic, social and cultural impact on the quality of life.”
