IDSA Looking REALLY Hard for a New Executive Director

logoidsa.gif

Attention industrial designers/gluttons for punishment everywhere, IDSA is looking for a new head honcho:

Are you passionate about design? REALLY passionate? Do you perceive the infinite possibilities for design and designers in the 21st century? Do you eat, breathe and sleep strategic innovation? Do you secretly–or maybe not so secretly–believe that everything can be improved through design? Do you seek the ultimate design project? The ultimate design project is to design the context in which the direction of the profession is designed. This will create new paradigms of thought and shape public opinion.

Although the order seems a little tall (we hear eating and breathing strategic innovation can be hazardous to your health), designing the context in which the direction of the profession is designed will no doubt make you famous. Or crazy. Nominations will be accepted until August 15 so the new leader will be installed before the big CONNECTING’07 conference planned for October 17-20 (which we told you ’bout way back when).
