In Brief

Industrial Design (ID) is the professional service of creating products and systems that optimize function, value and appearance for the mutual benefit of user and manufacturer. - IDSA

It is time for us to hear it from our very own Industrial Designers and perhaps come home proud of what they have achieved for the Nation.

Swing by this Saturday and be inspired by Azlan Othman the Chief Designer of PROTON, Nizam Najmuddin the Senior Industrial Designer of MIMOS and Zafri Z Merican MD/Industrial Designer of IDEATION.
