AIGA selectively forges relationships with
forward-thinking brands that understand and are invested in the transformative
power of design. A number of opportunities exist, from Official Sponsorship, which
provides high impact, year-long recognition, to a variety of Program
Sponsorships offering tailored messaging.
As the world’s largest and most influential design
association in the world, AIGA represents more than 22,000 members and the
country's 300,000 designers look to AIGA as an authority, resource and
advocate. Getting involved as a sponsor connects you directly with your target

“For those who only thought AIGA was a place to meet book designers
(which, it should be noted, it still is),
AIGA [is] positioning design as a tool for systems-thinking, problem-solving,
and creating real change.”--Alissa Walker, Fast Company
“Adobe and AIGA have a long-standing strategic partnership focused on the promotion and advancement of the design profession. The success of Adobe’s key products, from InDesign to Illustrator to the entire Adobe Creative Suite, would not have been possible without the support of AIGA and the broader design community.”
--John Loiacono, senior vice president of Creative Solutions Business Unit, Adobe
“Our sponsorship [of AIGA] has allowed us to build strong relationships with leaders in the design community. And these relationships have, in turn, helped bring our corporate culture into alignment with the needs and aspirations of this very important audience for our brand.”
--Laura Shore, senior vice president of communications and innovation strategies, Mohawk Fine Papers

Design feedback shouldn't be a painful process. In fact, if it's a painful process, I'd say someone's not doing it right. The most successful projects are usually ones with a collaborative workflow between a well-balanced team of designers, developers, project management, and of course — clients! It's essential to have a healthy feedback process, in which the client knows exactly what feedback is most helpful for the next round of revisions, and the designers and developers know how to translate and solve those problems.
I know, I know, both web teams and people who have hired web teams are out there groaning right now (we get it, and this isn't a soapbox). Everyone has had their fair share of difficult projects and poor communication, but it doesn't have to be that way. In efforts to improve the feedback process for web clients and design teams alike, I'm writing this two-part article about How to Give Good Web Design Feedback, and Turning Client Feedback Into Your Best Work.
