IDEEC (International Design Education Expo & Conference) is an innovative, dynamic, motivating event that is developed through global design institutions. Our global perspectives, diverse culture, and wide-ranging specialties are what makes our conference unique. We have gathered the best designers in the education community and academia to speak on philosophy, professional practice, social responsibility, and other relevant topics that will make a vital impact on the conversation about design and education. The IDEEC inspires designers, educators, and students working in the field of visual communication and information design around the world by delivering relevant programming and benefits in a personal and thoughtful way. Through this event and networking, participants will experience professional and personal growth, and the sharing of the desire and responsibility to help shape aspiring minds for the future.

The first IDEEC (International Design Education Expo & Conference) will be held August 2019 in San José, the heart of Silicon Valley. Each member institution will host the event in turn once a year, during the summer months. This year’s event will take place at Hammer Theatre in downtown San José, California near the San José State University campus. Hundreds of faculty and student groups from international universities are invited to display their design research and projects alongside leading industry professionals. This event consists of three parts: a conference, exhibition, and workshop. San José State University is partnering with the Granshan Foundation (non-Latin typography research and practice organization) and AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) to host this exciting free conference to share the value and diversity of design education with invited international educational institutions.
