The International Council of Graphic Design Associations (ICOGRADA) has been the professional world body for graphic design and visual communication since it was founded in London in 1963. A voluntary grouping of world-wide associations with a strong educational remit, it promotes the role of graphic design in both society and commerce. The ICOGRADA archive comprises 1500 posters from around the world, library holdings, and a significant body of documentation relating to governance, administration and educational activities.
