ico-D . Leading Creatively


While taking into account and celebrating institutional, cultural and social differences throughout the world, ico-D serves the worldwide community by:

• being an international non-partisan and non-governmental representative voice for design;

• representing the interests of professional designers in a responsible manner;

• defining and increasing awareness of professional standards and best practices governing design practice;

• advocating for design as an effective way of advancing the best interests of humanity and the environment;

• fostering recognition and respect of design by individuals and society at large (practitioners and clients included) as a valued and vital profession;

• facilitating knowledge management and exchange;

• facilitating cooperation amongst organisations of designers and allied institutions; and supporting the development of design education (practice, theory and research).

The Council’s vision, mission and core values are manifested through initiatives that promote and represent design as a medium for progressive change.
