ACIDO is an association of accredited Industrial Designers in Ontario, formed to develop and promote the profession. The discipline needs a community at its centre to facilitate the exchange of ideas and best practices, the advancement of our shared values, and growth opportunities for the Industrial Design workforce.


Objectives of the Association include:

Recognizing Excellence

Rocket Awards + Conference

For 15 years the Rocket Awards have brought together top graduates from each of Ontario’s Industrial Design programs. 2017 marks the introduction of a conference component to the event. Through additional programming such as one-on-one portfolio reviews and panel discussions, we’re proud to be transforming the event from competition-only, into a point of convergence for emerging and established talent in the field alike.
