About the Icograda Design Education Manifesto

The Icograda Design Education Manifesto defines Icograda's position on design education. The Manifesto was developed as a collaboration by a geographically, politically, economically, culturally and socially diverse cross section of the design education community, including individuals from Brazil, China, Germany, India, South Korea, the Netherlands, South Africa and the United States. The document was translated into ten languages and presented at Oullim, the Icograda Millennium Congress in Seoul.
