IDEAS Active Sports Design Network was founded in 1996.
Offering design services to an industry which has started acting global very early, the founders of the association felt the need to establish a business platform and show-case for professionally qualified sports-related apparel, product and graphic designers. It´s also a main purpose of IDEAS to obtain wider recognition of high-quality sports fashion and product design. Therefore membership to IDEAS is very selective and only experienced freelance working design studios are welcome.
IDEAS is exhibiting regularly at major trade fairs for the sports industry. Currently IDEAS takes part in ISPO show (Munich/ Germany), Outdoor show (Friedrichshafen/ Germany) and Performance Days show (Munich/ Germany). Members of IDEAS Active Sports Design Network exhibit their individual portfolios and visitors are invited to have a close look at the creative ideas.
A special focus of the unique association is the exchange among the members about future trends in sports. Years ago IDEAS has started to publish a colour forecast based upon this exchange and input of its international members and their deep knowledge of the market. In the meantime the IDEAS colour forecast is sold to companies all over the globe. The buyers appreciate the authenticity and expertise of this forecast – made by insiders of the sports industry for the sports industry. The colour card is published 2 years in advance and can be purchased directly from IDEAS.
Membership to IDEAS is very selective. Qualified professional experience and successful co-operations with major brands in the field of sports are requested from all applicants. Freelance working design studios only.
