For more than three decades (33 to be precise) IDSA and IDEA Awards have stood for awarding excellence in the field of products, sustainability, interaction design, packaging, strategy, research and concept design. The 2013 registrations are now open with the Early Bird phase coming to an end pretty soon. What I really like about this award is that IDSA goes the extra mile to ensure designers get adequate exposure through exhibitions and tours. Last year they had one in Boston and one in Korea.
For 2012, IDSA took it upon themselves to relay the message that “Good design is the basis for improved products, better business and a richer life.”
Every year some of the most innovative and thought-provoking products and concepts come out of the IDEA competition crowned as gold winners. These projects always leave us craving more information about the approach, their inspiration and what made them stand out from the other entries each category. IDSA has compiled an exclusive Q&As that addresses these queries in what they call “IDEA Insights” for 2012. Have a look.
