"IDSA IDEA 2017 winners demonstrate how designers are able to capture what's invisible to others and inspire beauty through the smallest of details within the simplest of artifacts," says IDEA 2017 Jury Chair Owen Foster, IDSA, of SHiFT Design Camp and Aether Global Learning. "Winners go beyond the tangible that we are so accustomed to seeing—to cultivate amazing, holistic ecosystems." Foster led more than two dozen design experts from around the world in judging 20 categories covering products, brands, experiences, strategies and more. Onsite jurying was held in May at the newly-renamed Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, MI.
