The International Design Awards (IDA) exists to recognize, celebrate and promote exceptional design visionaries and discover emerging talent in Architecture, Interior, Product, Graphic and Fashion Design worldwide. The Farmani Group founded the IDA as the design sibling of the Annual Lucie Awards for Photography, which has emerged as one of the world’s most prestigious photography awards.
The IDA trophy was designed by Ron Taft. The IDA logo, the 2007 and 2008 books were designed by Chen Design Associates, San Francisco. The original IDA concept was established by Hossein Farmani and Reto Eberle with the assistance of Jamie Waguh and Jules Janssen.
