Become an iF e.V. member and enjoy both the many benefits and our comprehensive service package:
The iF label is a widely-known seal of quality that enjoys a great international reputation. As a member, you are entitled to use the ‘member of iF’ logo, for example on your website and on your premises, in your reception area, in brochures and for advertising purposes. The logo signals your commitment to good design and indicates that you run a design-centered business or that you are an individual with a special interest in design.
With visitors from more than 100 countries and with 5 million page views per year, the iF website is an excellent platform for good design. It also gives you the chance to tap into the global iF design network. As a member, you can link your website to the iF website. Both potential clients and an international audience of people interested in design can find you and your company in our ‘Designers Directory’. Using the link to your website, visitors can learn more about you and your portfolio.
As a member, you can publish your own news in our ‘Design news’ section: for example news on new ventures, on exhibitions and other events. You will reach a perfectly targeted audience: design-interested users from all over the world who come to the iF website to get the latest information on current developments in the industry.
As a member, you will receive a free copy (E-book version) of the annual iF yearbooks in which we document the latest iF design awards. You can order additional E-book copies and all other iF publications at a special discount rate.
As a member, we will publish your name in the iF yearbooks and in other selected iF publications: an invaluable advantage when you want to raise awareness of your name or brand in the global design network and when you want to communicate your commitment to good design. The iF design awards not only enjoy the highest attention from the industry, but also from the media and from the general public. Hence, there is a correspondingly high interest in our publications. An interest from which you can directly benefit.
You’re not just a ‘member of iF’, you’re also our guest: we will invite you to all iF events, which are, of course, free to iF e.V. members. Enjoy design events, conferences and talks and, obviously, the design highlight of the year: the iF design awards night, where we honor the winners of the iF design awards.
The iF member card is your key to all the benefits we provide to our members. With the iF member card, you will receive your membership number, which entitles you to use all our services. These services also include free entry to the most important trade exhibitions in Hanover (for one year and for two people). This service is offered in cooperation with Messegesellschaft Hannover.
