AIGA Iowa, the local chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design, is excited to spread the word our new program, Design Assign. Design Assign is an initiative to benefit the world, our country and our communities through design.
As part of the national AIGA’s Design for Good initiative, AIGA Iowa is partnering area creatives with nonprofit organizations of the greater Des Moines area through Design Assign. These graphic designers, writers, web developers, photographers,
printers, etc. will provide local nonprofits with communication products that can help raise awareness and funds for their cause(s). These materials can range from, but aren’t limited to, advertisements and websites to logos, direct mail, posters and brochures.
This initiative will begin in mid-July and will culminate in a gallery event at the end of October. If you are interested, please register for a creative match on our website at
After leaving her Nebraska country home for the big city of Des Moines, Kate attended Drake University. Graduating in 2006 with a lengthy list of Bachelor's Degree majors and minors she stuck around and started her career at REL Productions. As a Production
Artist there she designed brandmarks, identity and collateral materials, websites and manage a private labeling client. Currently, Kate is a Senior Graphic Designer at Active Interest Media (previously named August Home Publishing) for "Garden Gate" magazine,
a bi-monthly publication. Her responsibilities include designing page layouts, art directing photography shoots, getting images web-ready for their weekly eNotes and creating demos of the magazine on digital platforms.
Kate has also been active in AIGA, the professional association for design, for 8 years and has just concluded a 4 year term as the president of the Iowa Chapter.
Looking for additional ways to design for good? This list of organizations and programs is a great place to start. There are many more opportunities out there—so if you know of a resource we should add here let us know!
Design for Good
Facing a crisis, the LIVESTRONG Foundation responded with a subtle rather than radical rebrand, boldly banking on the organization’s secure sense of self and its message that LIVESTRONG has never been about one person.
