IDSA Annual Meeting

Merit Award
IDSA Annual Meeting, Industrial Design Society of America, Ziba Design

The Industrial Design Society of America’s 2010 conference, themed “Do It Yourself,” was held in Portland, Ore. Tasked with creating environmental graphics for the event, industrial design firm Ziba Design (Portland) was up against an almost nonexistent budget ($4,000), an uninspiring venue (a traditional Hilton hotel), and a client with a reputation for fragmented conferences with poor theming and environmental design.
