Our Team

IDEEC (International Design Education Expo & Conference) is a non-profit organization of independent educators and designers who have a vision and passion for sharing their experiences and resources with the global design education community. The IDEEC is an innovative, dynamic, motivating event that is developed through global design institutions. Our global perspectives, diverse culture, and wide-ranging specialties are what makes our conference unique. It also provides special reinforcement to the design education community.

The IDEEC founder and coordinator, Prof. Chang Kim and his staff, located in San José, California, are responsible for planning and developing IDEEC's overall vision, event programs, and partnerships. We strive to discover, share, and integrate the excellence of design education through the curriculum, methodology, and showcase the work of our international membership network.
