Montreal (Canada) - Icograda's +DESIGN website is one of a select few profiled in I.D. Magazine's Annual Design Review 2008. Developed by Vancouver's Rethink Communications, the site received an honourable mention in the Interactive category.

In highlighting why the site made its short list, I.D. Magazine wrote:

Icograda +DESIGN

Nearly half a century old, Icograda is a global body devoted to advancing the discipline of design as it relates to society at large. Its new +DESIGN site, created by the Vancouver-based agency Rethink, distills the organization's mission to its essence. It's a simple catalog of case studies demonstrating the way design can promote social welfare, such as a campaign to improve traffic safety by Italy's Fabrica research center and a project by Philadelphia's MIO to "upcycle" financial news giant Bloomberg's unwanted business cards into office chairs. The jurors liked the site's start simplicity - it consists of nothing more than text, image galleries and comment boards - as well as its underlying message about the value of design.
