World Design Day
World Design Day (WDD) is an opportunity to recognize the value of design and its capacity for change in the world -- and to celebrate the birthday of ico-D!
The goal of WDD is to challenge designers to reflect deeply on the well-being of people within their local environments, and to find innovative solutions to local needs by using design as a vehicle to honor diversity, transcend borders, and improve quality of life. Marking the anniversary of ico-D’s establishment on 27 April 1963, participants worldwide are invited to gather, innovate, and live out a moment of design by organizing public events and initiatives on 27 April of each year.
World Design Day 2018: Kids can too!
Expanding on the 2017 Theme “Start Young” the 2018 iteration of World Design Day will continue to focus on the younger generations. World Design Day, celebrated worldwide on 27 April, is an opportunity to recognise the value of design and its capacity for change in the world — and to celebrate the founding of the International Council of Design fifty-five years ago.
