New Chartership for Product Designers is a roaring success!

CTPD is a unique Chartership now within the reach of IED members and it's already proving to be a winner. We would like to see even more members adding Chartered status to their credentials.

As you will probably be aware, the IED has been granted licence to award Chartered status to product designers by decree of the Privy Council; the Chartership is a competence-based registration, focusing on the abilities and skills of the designer.

Developed specially for designers working in product design, CTPD has the specific aim of providing professional recognition, support and registration to designers, on a par with their colleagues who register as Chartered Engineers, Chartered Scientists or Chartered Environmentalists.

Pictured here are some of the first IED CTPD registrants: Dr Ben Watson from 3M; Dr Caroline Simcock from Dyson; and Ian Callum, director of design at Jaguar. Ian Callum commented:

"The introduction of CTPD is a vital development for professionalism in the design community. The Chartership recognises and values the hard work, expertise and commitment to excellence demonstrated by product designers. It was an honour to become one of the first recipients."
