Industrial Design Association Industrial is not only a kind of industry, but also a kind of culture, a kind of spirit and out virtual fortune. What we do is to remind people what should do and what should not and what should do first and what should do later. We can not just be limited on appearance design, but bond industrial design with our life. "To design a new life style of our own", which means a healthy lifestyle, is our slogan.

The hope of education of Chinese design should be bailment on the youth. By facing the demand of design and talents, Chinese design education has no doubt to be one of the most urgent mission during this time. Design should be comprehensive, systematic and thoroughly deep into our market economy. At the meanwhile, what does a design truly think, it is for investors, producers, sales, consumers, and QCs to decide. Only with this, Chinese design could be able to have a great-leap-forward development.

A city which is focus on manufacturing, should focus on industrial design first. The development of industrial design could not be finished in a short time. It has its own way to insist on evolution as well as its value, which is revealed by a long time, should transform from ideas to manufacturing and make it come true.

We aim to make a transformation from "Made in China" to "Design in China". In China, Industrial design has made a long progress but globally, we are still in a primary stage. From now on, most of our works still remains on designing whatever colors of shapes for existed products, which means that most of concept designing works are usually completed in Europe or USA. We all know that China is a big commodity exporter, however, there are numbers of products which sale in our market designed by other countries. So there is still a long way to "design in China".

Industrial design should focus on value of traditional multi-culture of humanity, recognize every special cultural traditions and the combination of technology and economy. Moreover, industrial design is more tolerance and integrate to essences of Chinese culture.
