NO…i am not asking, but i need to answer this the best way possible! I am assisting in founding the first Industrial design company in Jordan (my country) and most people here (99.9%) dont have a clue as to what we, (I.D.) do…and the ones who think they do, think its mold and tool design…engineering design!
I am looking for material, literature or graphics, that i can use to help generate awarness and appreciation for our profession in this part of the globe.

Also, Niti Bahn may be able to help, the ITT (Illinois Intstitute of Technology) is a good place for evangelism/promotional materials ideas on ID-
Thanks for the help!
We will have to communicate through literature, images (perhaps compare a product designed by an engineer, and the same one designed by an I.D.) Also I was considering, video? somthing like the famous IDEO shopping cart…but much shorter…what do you think?
