Tyra von Zwiegbergk is the new Secretary General for International Council of Design – ico-D

Tyra von Zwiegbergk, vice President at Svenska Tecknare, has been elected the new Secretary General on the board of the global design organization International Council of Design, Ico-D. The new board was elected at the International Design Congress i Gwangju, South Korea, on the 23rd October. She succeeds Richard Grefé (AIGA) in the position.

– I am delighted to be a part of the Ico-D board! The Secretary General plays an important part and I am very pleased and proud to be trusted with this position. Ico-D is a great organization with an invaluable network. I am really looking forward to get started and see what Ico-D can do to further help improve the world of design. 

ico-D is an International Association of organizations and institutions in the design field with the main focus in visual communication and graphic design. Svenska Tecknare is one of the 200 members that are spread all over the world. The ico-D board has members from 4 continents with a unique experience of both design practice and design education.

– It is a great pleasure and honour to have Tyra von Zweigbergk as the new Secretary General of Ico-D.  It gives us a better influence internationally but also an improved insight into important and present topics for our organization says Karin Ahlin, Chairman of the board at The association of Swedish illustrators and graphic designers 

Tyra von Zweigbergk works as a designer, illustrator, artist and lecturer and her work has been been recognised with both awards and exhibitions. She is a regular guest lecturer at Konstfack University College of Arts, Craft and Design and board-member of Svenska Tecknare since 2010 where she is currently Vice President and head of both International Relations and the Rights and Conflicts Fund. In 2013 she was elected to the board of European Illustrator’s Forum. 2014 she initiated and co-organized the Sharing Possibilities symposium in Oslo with Grafill, Norway and the Value of Design Seminar with participants from the board of Ico-D in Stockholm 2015.

  As ico-D Secretary general, I´m looking forward to contribute with my experience from Svenska Tecknare in ensuring that design and designers are recognised, renumerated, protected and supported, in individual countries and internationally as a whole, Tyra says and continues – Good design has great value and power, but I am often struck by the precarious position of the designer.
