AIGA was founded in 1914 as a small club of graphic artists, printers, publishers and illustrators gathered in New York City. Since then, we’ve grown into a national network of more than 25,000 professional designers, educators, students and design enthusiasts served by 68 chapters.
In honor of the AIGA Centennial in 2014, this historical timeline represents a snapshot of 100 years of growth, change, creativity and achievement.
In 2014, AIGA turns 100! Get involved with chapter activities, attend an upcoming event, or contribute to an online archive of design history. Celebrate AIGA by celebrating design.

The archives of AIGA serve to identify, preserve and make
available records of enduring value. AIGA's aim is to make
conditions suitable for access and to support research that will
add to the literature of design and to safeguard its legacy.
