International Design Day
April 27, 2023
Great design is all around us. From grand architecture to objects in nature — inspiration is everywhere for anyone who seeks it.
International Design Day is an opportunity to recognize the value of design and its capacity to effect change. On this day, we 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 and transcend borders.
Celebrated since 1995, the International Council of Design has marked the occasion by celebrating how design has improved everyday life in local communities every April 27.
This year, International Design Day celebrates the ICoD’s 60th Anniversary with a theme that nods at its legacy as an organization. The theme, ‘Peace. Love. Design!’ Inspired by the activism of the sixties, we are encouraged to explore issues of environmentalism, social equity, collective movements, and radical change.
The American Institute of Building Design is honoring the day by making it easier to activate your membership by offering half-price on the first 12 months.
Use this gift card between April 27 and 30 by joining online or calling 1-800-366-2423.
