The 2013 IDSA Central District Design Conference will be at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel in Downtown Cleveland, April 12-13. IDSA is the voice of the industrial design profession.

No product is an island, especially in this new world of compatibility. A manmade environment typically consists of an assortment of interrelated products working harmoniously with each other, much like our natural ecosystem. When developing a new product experience, it is the designer’s job to carefully consider this context of the micro-ecosystem and analyze the interdependencies formed between the lead product, secondary products, complementary products and accessories lines. The end user or consumer is not served just by a single product but by this well balanced micro-ecosystem. But there is more.

Designing Your Ecosystem is also about the conscious sustainable choices in daily product and process design solutions we each make in our own design spheres. And, as we connect our independent design communities, we can effectively manage the interactions within these micro-ecosystems and positively impact the macro-level environment to make the world a better place.

Please join us April 12-13 in Cleveland for IDSA’s 2013 Central District Design Conference, where you will brainstorm and network with educators, students and design and business leaders from around the region and learn what it really means to Design Your Ecosystem.
