Design for Good webcast series

The limited, six-part Design for Good webcast series has come to an end. Watch all of the episodes below.

About the series

With this webcast series AIGA has relaunched Design for Good, a cause that has been at the core of AIGA since 2011. Design for Good now houses the strategic initiatives, composed of Design for Democracy, Diversity & Inclusion, and Women Lead.

The Design for Good webcast series is a resource of practical information and instruction through inspirational stories, offering opportunities for engaging dialogue, leadership development, and professional training. The guest speakers—AIGA members and beyond—are all active practitioners in social impact design, gender equity, creative placemaking, government innovation, racial justice, healthcare access, and more. While sharing their approaches to design practice, they demonstrate how designers can develop solutions for complex societal issues.
