What day is it? That’s right, it’s World Industrial Design Day. So find something you love and let it know how you really feel about it.
This year, Icsid, the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design, has chosen the theme “Industrial Design: Humane Solutions for a Resilient World”. The plan is to remind us all that design can indeed save the world, or, in Icsid-speak, to “facilitate collaboration within the industrial design community with the goal of producing tangible solutions to world problems”. The organisation lists a range of activities that designers around the world are doing to mark the day; there's nothing from New Zealand, alas, but then a bit of gratitude always goes a long way.
