Montreal Leads In Graphic and Industrial Design

A new force in Graphic and Industrial Design opened its doors today in Montreal. It’s the Head Office of the International Design Alliance, which is located in the Caisse de dpt et placement du Qubec building. The International Design Alliance brings together two major international organizations in the field of industrial and graphic design: the International Council of Graphic Design Associations (Icograda) and the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid). Montreal has many strengths in design, not least of which is the Institute of Design Montreal.

Montreal beat a field of 34 cities, which were in contention for this prestigious international secretariat. The competition was fierce from the other finalists, Brussels, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Nagoya and Turin. However Montreal was declared the most suitable home for this important hub for industrial and graphic design. We welcome the International Design Alliance, and trust it will have a long and successful future here.
