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 edition of IxDD welcomes both in-person and online events.
This year’s IxDD edition returns to our original format of organizing local meetups around the globe. We welcome everyone to contribute by hosting activities for their local communities around the theme for 2022: Fundamentals and Perspectives
World Interaction Design Day is a global celebration of interaction design's ability to improve the human condition. Presented with the support of Adobe, events will take place in communities across the world on 27 September 2022. This includes presentations, workshops, and design showcases focused on elevating the work of interaction designers, and knowledge sharing.
World Interaction Design Day is first-and-foremost for interaction designers; events will focus on the practice of creating interactive digital products, environments, and services. If you're not an interaction designer, you're still very welcome to attend an event; developers, academics, students, and designers from other disciplines will certainly find many of our events interesting and empowering.
This year's theme is Fundamentals and Perspectives. World Interaction Design Day events will look at the current fundamentals of interaction design practice and offer perspectives on how the nature of our work is changing.
In 2022, World Interaction Design Day celebrates our fifth anniversary. Check out our Highlights from the last four years — you'll find videos along with articles and blog posts from our global community.
While there are no specific guidelines, all events should host activities that support and advance awareness of interaction design and its impact on our world.
This year, we are welcoming supporting sponsors to present World Interaction Design Day. Your contribution will go to funding local events. You can also host an event or help a local group host an event.
