British Industrial Design Association membership is a benchmark of creativity and best-practice for professionals and graduates working in product, interaction and service design.

BIDA is a not-for-profit organisation, run for members, by a voluntary, elected board of designers.  Collectively we are committed to improving creative skills and knowledge. We advocate the benefits of good design education and practice to business, government and it's agencies. 


Specialisms include research, strategy, service development, product and digital interaction design.

Members work blends behavioural, ergonomic, market and technical know-how. We plan, create and deliver outstanding design solutions.
