27 April, Icograda's anniversary, was designated World Graphics Day in 1995. It is an opportunity to recognise communication design and its role in the world.
Design shapes our world in every way, affecting our understandings, opinions, actions and decisions. Design determines the impact of information, whether it be through colour, form, or type, including the smallest street sign, the websites we browse, the products we purchase, or the books we read.
Since 1995, designers around the globe have come together to celebrate World Graphics Day in ways as diverse as the global community that Icograda represents. Along the way, Icograda has launched key initiatives enabling global dialogue and collaboration, advancing the mission and vision of our organisation. Here are a few highlights from the past 12 years.
