IDA in 2013
This is the working home page for the Information Design Association in the UK. This Web site will be superceded in 2014 by a more comprehensive one that will help us grow an online community of Information Designers.

Become a member, support the IDA
We now have a well-defined membership scheme with provision for corporate membership too; take-up in January 2013 has been very encouraging. Read more at our Membership page...
About our evening meetings
Since the IDA started in 1991, our programme has included evening meetings in London: a mix of a lecture or discussion with a social event. We aim to run six of these in London each year, plus a number of networking events at pubs. Meetings are free to IDA members!
We are building a section of this site which lists previous events, and in some cases provides links to recordings and/or written accounts of them.
The Information Design Conferences
Our big event of 2012 was IDC 2012, the latest in the series of international, UK-based Information Design Conference events. Attendance was at capacity, with over a hundred people on each of the two days, about three dozen speakers, and a room full of poster presentations too.
Information Design Conferences are held every other year, in the Spring. In the autumn of 2013 we expect to publish our call for submissions for IDC2014.
