Just a brief update - I wrote an awesome blog post about being an AIGA member -
http://www.smallbusinesswebdesigns.net.au/blog/aiga-becoming-a-member-and-utilizing-your-membership-in-australia if you're outside of the USA - in this case we're based in Australia. We also opened up a New Zealand office - http://www.smallbusinesswebdesigns.co.nz/ -
and hired someone from AIGA. So this has been a great platform to align to.
Good Morning Everyone!
I am approaching my 18th year as a designer and I'm currently looking to move into the next chapter of my career... a new job as the head Creative Director at a local company. This position will be a 50/50 balance of management and design. I have been mid-level
for a long time now and I'm ready to move on!
I just joined AIGA again and I'm in need of some serious critiquing of my online portfolio and work. I am open to suggestions, helpful critisism and suggestions from my fellow designers out there. I will be creating a new portfolio here on AIGA but for now
my personal portfolio is here...
I appreciate anyone's help, thanks everyone!
Hi guys! I'm an Australian based Sydney web designer, working with a great team downunder. If you have any questions about Wordpress, Joomla, Weebly or CMS such as Salesforce or SoaS like Xero or TaskRay, I can help! Look forward to engaging with you all.
Hi Guys! I am new to AIGA. I have a BA in English, a TEFL certificate and I currently teaching but I have been an artist my entire life. I want a career in design. I miss being in the arts.
The thing is that I do not have any degrees in design or fine arts. I understand that a portfolio and work experience can help for someone who doesn't have degrees in design.
I would like to know if there are any AIGA members who are in my situation or have been in a similar situation.
Thanks so much! I am very excited about my new membership to AIGA!
I'm new here, so hopefully I'm posting this in a place where I can find some answers. I work for a printing company in the division that publishes a weekly community newspaper. My chief duty has been layout and ad design for the newspaper, but I also do
print design for the parent company. I've been here for a little over a year and have been sailing along nicely until our principal designer left a couple weeks ago. Since then I've been having a heck of a time with stuff because I'm not at all well-versed
in prepress. Many of my jobs have been coming back to me with issues of color separation - mainly in regards to the blacks. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend good, thorough resources for questions when it comes to prepress because as of right now I'm
just stumbling through employing the "cross my fingers and hope it works" method - which doesn't always work. ;-)

thrives on the threshold of disciplines and cultures, working in
the boundary spaces between art and design, and between Mexico and
the United States.
