IIT Institute of Design

IIT Institute of Design (ID) continually shapes what design is, and what it can be. It focuses not just on design itself, but the impact it has on the world around us. It instills the courage necessary to discard stagnant thinking and take action that changes systems, surfaces opportunities, and solves complex challenges. This is ID. Founded on the belief that design connects and enhances every aspect of life, building toward a more sustainable future. Founded 80 years ago in Chicago as the New Bauhaus by László Moholy-Nagy, in order to “ensure … society has access to the maximum use of constructive abilities for its benefit,” ID is a graduate-only professional design school in North America. Grounded in human-centered design and systems thinking, ID offers leading Master’s and PhD programs in design and design-driven innovation and develops pioneering thinkers and interdisciplinary problem solvers who navigate and facilitate change across complex systems.
