Industrial Design Society

The Industrial Design Society of Liverpool was founded in the fall of 2017. It was officially inaugurated on the 11 December 2017. Its purpose is to foster continued learning, academic and personal growth, peer mentoring and support, professional development and employability-enhancing activities across its membership aimed at helping its members reach their full potential and achieve their ambitions.

The ID Society organizes many co-curricular activities including excursions, exhibitions, industrial guest speakers, design workshops and more throughout the year.  In addition, its members serve as student ambassadors during Open Days, take prospective students and their parents on tours across campus, and more.  Well, and like any other bunch of proper students they have lots of fun hanging out together, figuring out what classes to take or which instructors to avoid, and enjoying free pizza usually sponsored by our academic staff…

At present, the Industrial Design Society of Liverpool is comprised of approximately 70 active members.  It is open to all students in Industrial Design at the University of Liverpool.  Our motto is “We are family”, and we are immensely proud to be part of a vibrant and rapidly growing student community within a Division of Industrial Design, which operates on the principles of a Learning Organization. – If you do not yet know what that means, look it up.

The inaugural Founding President and Vice President of the Industrial Design Society are Mr James Clarke and Ms Charlotte Mears, respectively. If you would like to learn more and get involved, please feel free to touch base with Charlotte or James.
