The Board of Directors of the Council for Interior Design Accreditation [CIDA] is pleased to introduce a new look for CIDA in 2010 and beyond. A new logo has been implemented effective April 1, 2010. The refreshed graphic identity is also being extended to the CIDA website with an updated design scheduled for launch in early June.
“The new logo acknowledges and reinforces the Council for Interior Design Accreditation’s acronym, CIDA, which has been commonly used since the organization’s name change in 2006,” states Holly Mattson, Executive Director. “Beyond the logo, the website design is improved to ensure immediate access to the most commonly sought information, particularly for prospective students who are frequent visitors. We are looking forward to introducing the new site this summer.”
The Council for Interior Design Accreditation is an independent, non-profit, accrediting organization responsible for setting standards and evaluating degree granting interior design programs. There are 167 CIDA-accredited programs in the U.S. and Canada. For more information about the Board of Directors, go to the web site accredit-id.org and look under About Us, Board of Directors.
