The AIGA Design Conference is the largest gathering of AIGA members and the most valued meeting place for the world’s leading innovators and inspiring voices in design. Join us this October in Denver to explore what lies beyond the edge of today’s ideas, share your passion and knowledge with 2,500 attendees, and learn what’s new, what matters and what’s next in great design.

Hear from AIGA Medalists Ed Fella and Ellen Lupton, host Kurt Andersen, speakers Marian Bantjes, Christoph Niemann, Adrian Shaughnessy and many more. Just a few of the must-see programs at “Next” include:

Janine Benyus, science writer and author of Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature, demonstrates how nature provides the best ideas as models for designs and processes to solve human problems.

Alexander Brebner, creative vice president, Bumble and bumble, discusses the issues in-house designers face, including how to keep your work fresh, as well as the virtues and challenges of being your own client.

Nick Currie, a.k.a. Momus, thinker, writer and musician, ponders the ongoing digitization of culture and the possibility that clever interface design will replace real-world textures in the near future.

Amy Gendler, director, AIGA China, examines the role design will play in China’s development. Take the time to understand the contradictions of this rapidly changing economic and cultural force, as well as its influence on the global design community.

But wait—there’s more! You won't want to miss: Command X, the graphic design reality show; the ever popular Typography Quiz; the Student Portfolio display; creativity-fueling activities in the Design Fair; plus studio tours and speaker roundtables.
