Get Involved

Get involved with your IDI Council of Members, be part of a national committee, set up or get active in a local chapter.

The IDI is open and welcoming - it is owned and run by its designer members. Its strength lies in its membership and their creative ideas, energy and willingness to engage with and run the organisation. Members can propose and run an event or simply raise an issue that’s important to them.

Whether you as a member have an idea for a series of lectures, a site visit, a workshop or seminar, or you just have some free time in which you'd like to help out at events already in the IDI calendar, please get in touch with IDI directly at

The creative willpower of IDI Members is what makes the Institute's work possible and supports its aims at making design matter. That spirit of involvement has been shown in a willingness of so many positive people over the years to make their own contributions to the best serve the interests of the wider design community.

Because of this track record of involvement, IDI is an completely open organization - it has survived (and at times thrived) for over 45 years from the volunteer spirit in our great design industry - there is certainly room on a committee for you too!

Please get involved.
