(Est. 1972) “The Institute of Designers in Ireland is the professional body representing the interests of Irish designers. Its function is to promote high standards of design, to foster professionalism and to emphasise designers’ responsibility to society, to the client and to each other.”

The old logo had a bit of cleverness in having an "i" sort of implied in the "D" but otherwise it was just large swoosh. The new logo is much more contemporary with the condensed rounded sans serif and placing it inside a big "D" emphasizes "Design". The colorful geometric shapes that accompany the logo are kind of cool when used more abstractly.
