The AIGA Design Educators Community (DEC) was established in 2004 to support the unique activities and responsibilities of the design educator at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels in a wide variety of institutional settings. The goals of this community are to facilitate communication among design educators; create, foster and promote dialogue; produce design education events such as conferences and competitions; present current research and teaching methods; establish standards for design education; differentiate between design’s various subdisciplines; raise the level of design-driven thinking in schools across the country; and communicate the value of design education to the larger profession.
Subjects of interest to this community span teaching, research and service. They include curriculum and program development, design theory and history, methodology, typography, usability research, and the social roles of designers, as well as tenure, promotion, teaching standards and school accreditation.

“The thought of going in-house initially scared me,” says the associate creative director of Target. “I was worried that I’d have less variety and fewer opportunities to flex my creativity. I couldn’t have been more wrong.” Peters talks about what it’s like to work for one of the most respected in-house design groups around.
