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” 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.
