The theme of International Design Day 2021 is ‘Design for Each and All’. The collective human family is made up of many different, intersecting types of people. How ‘each and all’ humans encounter the designed world depends on varying degrees of equitable access to certain material realities, spaces, and experiences.
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.
Starting in 2021, the event formerly known as World Design Day is now being celebrated as International Design Day (IDD) is an opportunity to recognize the value of design and its capacity for change in the world—and to celebrate the birthday of ICoD.
