60+1 ways to say ‘I Love Design’ 2011

 

April 27 marks the World Day of Design, the date established in the year 1995 by Icograda (International Council of Graphic Design Associations). World Graphics Day is an opportunity to recognize the graphic design and its role in the world, is also the way to celebrate the birthday of Icograda, founded in 1963.
