The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid) announced the winner of the first student poster competition for World Industrial Design Day. The winning entry was submitted by Carla Sapiain, from the Instituto Profesional DuocUC de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
In preparation for World Industrial Design Day on 29 June, Icsid invited students from its member schools to design a poster reflecting this year's theme 'Industrial Design: the product of human creativity'. Martin Darbyshire, Icsid Board Member and Jury Chair, made the following comments about the winning entry: "The level of effort put into the pre-production of the poster is worth noting. The image of the tree is a good metaphor for the organic nature of industrial design, as well as a powerful and evocative reminder of our responsibilities. The end result is a colourful and eye-catching poster that boldly communicated the date of World Industrial Design Day - June 29, 2009."
Of the 42 entries submitted, the jury shortlisted 14 posters for their notable adaptation of the theme. In addition, honourable mentions were awarded to Anita Lukacsi and Otiília Erdélyi, both entries from the University of West Hungary.
The winning poster, along with the other shortlisted entries, is available for viewing on the Icsid Website at www.icsid.org/education/gallery.htm.
