Ignites Change, a strategic partner of AIGA, is a new annual
program that encourages talented high school and college students
from across the country to use design thinking and innovation to
create messages for, and solutions to, complex social problems.
A major component of Design Ignites Change is a mentoring
program in which college students, educators and professionals will
work with underserved high school students to develop projects that
will benefit their own communities while giving them a voice on
important social issues.
Through this strategic partnership, AIGA will be able to
showcase finalist student projects from the Aspen Design Challenge on
the Design Ignites Change website. In addition, local AIGA chapters
that participate in this youth mentoring initiative will be
represented in the projects section of the Design Ignites Change

By now there must be few
people who are unaware of the recent uproar surrounding the University of
California’s rebranding effort. Seldom does
the media take such an active interest in design, so it was disheartening that they got their reporting so very wrong. The outcome
of that misreporting—fueled by an online petition and fanned by our very own
design community—has set back the course of design and cheated the university out of a progressive new identity.

Striking a balance between accessible and sophisticated, this campaign for a Bay Area arts institution sought to attract area audiences that might be curious about art but intimidated by high culture. “Friendly hip, not hipster hip” was a guiding principle.
