Fast Company is America’s most innovative business publication, and since its founding has championed good design as integral to business processes and success,” said Eric Engstrom, FIIDA, IIDA president. “IIDA recognizes and enthusiastically supports Fast Company‘s commitment to design excellence in both the workplace and product design.”

By uncovering best and “next” practices, the magazine helps a new breed of leader work smarter and more effectively.”

Fast Company was selected from among many outstanding candidates for its leadership in reinforcing the intrinsic connection between design, branding, culture and business and in publicizing the significance of design as fundamental to business success and the bottom-line.
