Background: About Icograda Design Week

Icograda Design Week is Icograda's signature event brand. It examines and promotes the role of communication design in an international context, considering both cultural and economic axes. The goal of an Icograda Design Week is to create a platform that promotes the development of the design profession and to allow Icograda members to communicate and share resources with one another. An Icograda Design Week provides a high-quality professional development, educational and networking experience for delegates.


Recent Icograda Design Week's have been hosted in Brno (Czech Republic), Istanbul (Turkey), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Hong Kong (China), Seattle (United States) and Tshwane (South Africa). The events have typically attracted between 400-500 delegates from more than 20 countries.

The mission of Icograda Design Week is to recognise events organised by Icograda Members that are of international calibre. It celebrates the diverse activities of Icograda's members that use design as a medium for progressive change.
