• Event: AIGA Iowa Design Assign


    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 www.aigaiowa.org/designassign.
