AIGA - The Buzz

As the weather turns cooler and classes start up, AIGA introduces new pricing, benefits and resources for current students, faculty and recent graduates!

Discounts for students

Discounts and benefits for students

AIGA introduced new, flexible membership options last month, making it affordable for everyone to belong. If you are enrolled at a college or university, select “Student” as your primary attribute and select a student group in your account on My AIGA to access many AIGA benefits. Student group advisers will update rosters of current members each semester. Be sure you’re connected to your student group and stay actively involved!

If you’ve graduated, select “Emerging designer” when you update your account on My AIGA. When your membership is up for renewal, you’ll be able to select the level that’s right for you.

Resources for emerging designers

Resources for emerging designers

How do you find a new position, write a cover letter, interview and present your portfolio to land a sweet gig? And once you’ve found the perfect internship, client or position, what do you need to do to make sure you keep it? Check out the new Student Resources page on AIGA.org to get advice on these issues and more—including past issues of this newsletter.


Fall events at your local chapter

Some of the most exciting design events and activities are hosted by local chapters. For instance, AIGA Kansas City is hosting a series of events for emerging designers called “Lead: Lessons for an Evolving and Aspiring Designer,” and AIGA Minnesota offers emerging designers a lunch series with local design legends. Get in touch with your local chapter for more fall events!

AIGA is offering three sets of free members-only webinars this year. “Breakthroughs” with Adobe will teach you how to design for mobile, while “Industry Insights” with Aquent introduces you to design leaders in growing industries; “Ask Aquent” gives you the chance to ask expert recruiters career-related questions. Sign up for all three September sessions today!
