AIGA’s “Justified” competition
recognizes case studies that demonstrate the value of design in a clear,
compelling and accessible way. Effective design will nearly always reflect the powerful emotional draw of creativity, inspiration and simplicity; and yet
today, for design to be truly effective, it must also serve the client’s very
unique capacity for seeing problems from unexpected angles—as well as designers’
creativity and empathy with human experience—is in high demand. AIGA believes
that a competition built around the case study format, rather than one built around the selection of
artifacts, offers a more effective means of revealing how designers have
approached clients’ problems, with all of the attendant constraints. With this
in mind, the 2012 “Justified” competition honors 18 exemplary case studies of
design solutions, each of which successfully demonstrate the value of design.

NEW YORK—August 5, 2014. Yathrib Ragsdale mentors minority, first generation, college bound students. Myles Thompson educates his college campus about African American art and culture. And
Kawing Ng manages a Meetup group called VolunteerNY to bring together people who share a common goal of giving back to the community. These talented and dedicated students are among 14 recipients of the 2014–2015 Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships, awarded each year to art and design college students who demonstrate a commitment to social responsibility.
NEW YORK—July 1, 2014. Today five board members and a new presidents council representative join the national board of directors
for AIGA, the professional association for design, following a national
search. Ken Carbone, John Luu, Christopher Simmons, Jill Spaeth, Paul Wharton and Elysia Syriac join the national board, and Su Mathews Hale has been elected to the president-elect position.
After much discussion throughout the entire design community, the national board
approved the sale of AIGA’s building in New York City. At this pivotal point in our history, the board
adopted a revised strategic framework which articulates four strategic focuses for the organization and outlines the process and timeline for funding decisions.
