Every two years, hundreds of designers make plans to attend the AIGA Design
Conference. Why? This single gathering connects them with people and
ideas on the leading edge of the design profession, addressing the
challenges and issues that matter most. The 2011 “Pivot: AIGA Design Conference” conference was no exception.
In October 2011, “Pivot” drew more than 1,500 designers, educators and students to Phoenix for a three-day event focused on the changing nature of the design industry. Through inspiring sessions, practical workshops and in-depth discussion, attendees and presenters explored the shifts prompting changes in society, the economy and culture—and learned how to prepare for the complexities of the future.

After much deliberation and lively discourse, the AIGA board voted yesterday to proceed with negotiations to sell the AIGA national headquarters building at 164 Fifth Avenue in New York. The national board, advisory board, chapter leadership, medalists, past presidents, past board members and general membership were all part of this conversation, and the debate on the issue has been essential to our decision making process.
NEW YORK—November 15, 2013. This
week AIGA, the professional association for design, announced the 2013
results of “Justified: AIGA Design Competition.” Nearly 300 design projects were submitted to the annual competition, to
be judged on strength, concept, impact, methodology and success of
formal execution and aesthetics.
NEW YORK—November 12, 2013. AIGA’s Design Leaders Confidence Index dropped slightly in the third quarter of 2013 to settle at 95.94, down from the previous quarter’s 100.02. At the same time, design leaders are optimistic about a solid (if not growing) future.
