World Interaction
Design Day 2022:
Fundamentals
+Perspectives

27 September 2022

World Interaction Design Day (#IxDD) is an annual event where we come together as a united global community to show how interaction design improves the human condition. Our aim is to have a positive, long-lasting impact by facilitating activities that support dialogue and outcomes.

This year’s IxDD edition returned to our original format of organizing local meetups around the globe — both in person or online. Twenty four gatherings took place in 18 countries.

We’re grateful to everyone who contributed by hosting activities for their local communities around our 2022 theme: Fundamentals and Perspectives. Read our 2022 Outcomes Report.

We’ll mark the next World Interaction Design Day on 26 September 2023.
