Chinese-language editions of AIGA's Design Business and Ethics
(top) and Mission.
AIGA China was launched in 2007 to help to develop a community of professional designers in China, to share the direction of design education that is prevalent in the United States, and to provide open channels for American designers to learn about Chinese cultural norms and for Chinese designers to make links with American design and designers.
AIGA China is represented on the web at www.aigachina.org, featuring a
frequently updated selection of articles and resources in Chinese.
The site translates content from AIGA’s website, provides a forum
for original articles by Chinese designers and highlights AIGA
China’s initiatives and activities.
Developing a network of educators and students within China and
between Chinese designers and their American counterparts is
paramount to AIGA China’s mission. The
first Chinese-language edition of AIGA's Design Business and
Ethics was published in June 2008. To date, over 32,000
copies have been distributed to Chinese designers, who are working in a design economy that has not yet developed the ethos and professional standards that have evolved in other countries. The Chinese edition of
AIGA 365: Year in Design 29 is now available on
sample of this annual is available for download. More
publishing projects are planned.
The AIGA Design Archives are available as a teaching
resource for instructors. This is part of an overall strategy to
address the needs of students throughout China—reaching beyond the
large, coastal cities to other locales where quality design
programs are beginning to take hold. By sharing resources such as
these with designers in China, AIGA can play an active role in
bringing the next generation of China's designers into the world
