Each year ACIDO hosts “Rocket”, a competition for Ontario’s graduating Industrial Designers. There are three ACIDO-recognized schools of Industrial Design in Ontario – OCAD U, Carleton University and Humber College and the graduates are invited to present their senior year studio projects to a panel of professional designers and invited guest judges.
Rocket is an opportunity for designers entering the market to: showcase their talents, meet their peers from the other grad classes, mark the completion of their studies and get to know other designers in the Ontario ID community. This coming year will mark our 14th anniversary of the event. There are prizes awarded from ACIDO (a cash prize) and prizes from the following sponsors: Spin Master, Cortex Design Inc., Teknion, Javelin Technologies Inc., Designforce, Swave Studios, Nova Product Development Services, Inertia & Umbra
