About AIGA

AIGA, the pro­fes­sion­al asso­ci­a­tion for design, is com­mit­ted to fur­ther­ing excel­lence in design as a broad­ly-defined dis­ci­pline, strate­gic tool for busi­ness, and cul­tur­al force. AIGA is the place design pro­fes­sion­als turn to first to exchange ideas and infor­ma­tion, par­tic­i­pate in crit­i­cal analy­sis and research, and advance edu­ca­tion and eth­i­cal prac­tice.
AIGA sets the nation­al agen­da for the role of design in its eco­nom­ic, social, polit­i­cal, cul­tur­al and cre­ative con­texts. AIGA is the old­est and largest mem­ber­ship asso­ci­a­tion for pro­fes­sion­als engaged in the dis­ci­pline, prac­tice and cul­ture of design­ing. Founded as the American Institute of Graphic Arts in 1914 as a small, exclu­sive club, AIGA now rep­re­sents more than 17,000 design­ers through nation­al activ­i­ties and local pro­grams devel­oped by 48 chap­ters and more than 150 stu­dent groups.
AIGA serves as a hub of thought-lead­er­ship and activ­i­ty for the design­ing com­mu­ni­ty. The asso­ci­a­tion is com­mit­ted to stim­u­lat­ing think­ing about design through con­fer­ences, com­pe­ti­tions, exhi­bi­tions, pub­li­ca­tions and Web sites. AIGA inspires, edu­cates and informs design­ers, help­ing them to real­ize their tal­ents and to advo­cate the val­ue of design among the media, the busi­ness com­mu­ni­ty, pub­lic agen­cies and the gen­er­al pub­lic. While AIGA was cre­at­ed to advance the design pro­fes­sion, its mem­bers now place a high­er pri­or­i­ty on AIGA’s work in com­mu­ni­cat­ing the val­ue of design to audi­ences out­side the pro­fes­sion.
• Encourage design of uncom­mon effec­tive­ness that hon­est­ly and clear­ly serves the needs of real peo­ple and cre­ates val­ue for clients.
• Encourage design­ers to cre­ate design of beau­ty and orig­i­nal­i­ty.
• To speak on behalf of the pro­fes­sion on issues that affect the integri­ty and suc­cess of the pro­fes­sion.
• To assist those who work with design­ers to reach the design com­mu­ni­ty with valu­able and impor­tant infor­ma­tion.
• To cre­ate a sense of com­mu­ni­ty among design­ers and to help them to take advan­tage of the net­work of design­ers.
• To strength­en the pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence of indi­vid­ual design­ers.
• To cre­ate greater under­stand­ing of the role and val­ue of design­ing and design­ers in cre­at­ing val­ue for soci­ety, and com­merce.
