       IFDA's Educational Foundation Stages Its First 'DesignEDGE' Summit            in New York

"Design is for everyday life for everybody—design and innovation are inseparable." These ideas were at the core of a 60-minute keynote address by global design force Karim Rashid at the morning session of "DesignEdge".  The afternoon panel, moderated by Karen Elizabeth Marx consisting of Caleb Anderson, Jamie Derringer, Susan Jamieson & Chad Stark, addressed a variety of issues important to the design community today including managing client expectations, using social media today, including a charity component in your business model and the role of the shelter magazine today. 

2017's "DesignEdge" ended with an after-party hosted by Revis Studio at UrbanOffice NY. Next year's event will precede the 2018 Summer Las Vegas Market.
