Help raise awareness through the “End Gun Violence” project

AIGA encourages students to participate in a public-awareness campaign by submitting a nonpartisan poster to the “End Gun Violence” project created by AIGA member John Clark to foster discourse. As a community of designers, we can amplify our voices to command the public’s attention and help effect a solution. Learn more about the project.

How to survive a critique

How to Survive a Critique

Design is a complex endeavor—one resistant to simple metrics or measures. In design education, instructors rely heavily on a subjective form of review known as the critique. As a design student, learning how to give and receive feedback effectively is an essential skill that extends beyond the classroom. Design professor and AIGA member Karen Cheng offers tips for students and critics on participating in an effective critique.
