IDSA: Design of the Decade

On exhibit Sept. 12 – Oct. 16, 2011, at the M. Louise Aughinbaugh Gallery at Messiah College


During the last 10 years, design has been leveraged with increasing effectiveness to remedy poor user experiences, rescue tired brands and empower developing economies. IDSA: Design of the Decade celebrates the importance of industrial design as a spur to innovation, excellence and business success.


This exhibition of commercially produced objects has been selected by a jury of the Industrial Designers
Society of America to represent outstanding examples of the smart contribution design is making to business and society. The exhibit recognizes the processes and people involved in the industrial design of a given object, and considers how those objects and skills and talent can be applied to address broad societal issues.


Admission to the M. Louise Aughinbaugh Gallery is free.
