What are the hottest upcoming trends in the creative industries? And which skills do you need to navigate them in the years ahead? To find out, last summer The Creative Group (TCG) interviewed leading creative thinkers and conducted a survey in partnership with the American Advertising Federation. The results of that research are compiled in the guide The Creative Team of the Future.
As part of that project, Richard Grefé, executive director of AIGA, the professional association for design, spoke to TCG about how creative professionals can elevate their role in the business world and earn greater validation for what they do. Hear his insights in the video above.

resources to help creative professionals and companies keep up with
ongoing changes in the industry. As part of that mission, TCG has partnered with AIGA as the presenting sponsor for “INitiative,” a program to help in-house designers make a greater impact at their companies, evolve

Executive director Richard Grefé finds evidence to show that the opportunity for design and
designers has never been greater.

AIGA Insight, education, business, students
It’s tempting to cling to craft
and tools as the core of design curricula. But with some research and
experimentation in the classroom, author David Sherwin found a new model for
helping students to become more creative, collaborative and resilient (and more
employable in the process).

AIGA Insight, Design for Good, social responsibility
I was raised to believe that an architect should be able to design everything from a spoon to a city. At the root this belief is a commitment to improve the design of everything that can be made—to make it better.

This film will allow designers of my generation and after, to learn about how it all worked before computers, and it will serve to honor the folks who made that transition from hand to digital, for their experience and skills that most designers and illustrators will never know again.
The redesign is not meant to indirectly criticize someone’s work; rather it is a quest to present content from another perspective.
