About

IDEA is a benchmark of design and is unweathered by shifting fads or transitory styling.

The International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) were born in 1980. They celebrate the pinnacle of design achievement year after year and are a catalyst for the designers fortunate enough to win. Trends will come and go, but one thing endures … winning an IDEA is a career-defining moment and positions winners instantaneously in the global spotlight. Each year over 1,600 entries are submitted across a wide-ranging span of categories, making IDEA one of the largest and most eagerly anticipated annual awards programs in existence. 

A jury of world-renowned designers representing a cross-section of design disciplines is assembled every year and descends upon the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI for the final judging stages. Finalist entries are meticulously evaluated in a blind setting with incredible attention to detail and rigor. Point values are assigned and tabulated based upon excellence of: design innovation; user experience; benefit to the client; benefit to society and appropriate aesthetics. 

IDEA is a benchmark of design and is unweathered by shifting fads or transitory styling. Gold winners are housed in the permanent collection at the Henry Ford Museum, remaining an ever-present symbol of ingenuity and mastery of craft. Excellence is exemplified.
