World Industrial Design Day

Today, on june 29 of  2011 we celebrate the fourth annual  World Industrial Design Day . Congrats to all the designers out there , and of course congrats to ourselves too !

The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design ( Icsid ) celebrates the day  with a Student Poster Competition : design students from Icsid Member Schools are asked to create a poster that illustrates how industrial design improves the lives of individuals and communities around the world. This year the winner were two students from Chile ( arriba latinoamérica!).

Winning poster by Paula Beatríz Cabrera Osorio and Vania Farías of the Instituto Profesional DuocUC de la Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile.

Icsid also has a very interesting .PDF document to give 10 ideas on how to celebrate World Industrial Design Day, the cool thing is that includes several activities around the globe.

June 29 is the 180 day of the year (181st in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar. Such a nice numer isn´t it ?
