Dear IID Member,
For the first time in over a century, the world is collectively beset by a great and unprecedented crisis. But it needs to be said, that great crises always precipitate great change. And the design sector will lead the way in charting a course for humanity into the brave new world we will be stepping into. Never before have the talents to innovate and redefine what is normal been more needed, and for that reason we acknowledge World Design Day, since it will be the designers who move us forward and build the world of tomorrow.
The African Institute of the Interior Design Professions (IID) is a
Member of The International Council of Design (ico-D).
World Design Day (WDD) is an opportunity to recognise the value of design and its capacity for change in the world — and to celebrate the birthday of ico-D!
For World Design Day 2020 our theme is “Be Professional!” — a reflection on the designer’s role, not only in designing, but in our greater responsibilities towards humanity, the planet and culture.
