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—March 5, 2013. A new professional fellowship program developed by Design Ignites Change and AIGA aims to support social impact projects by providing seed funding and mentoring to creative professionals.
NEW YORK—February 12, 2013. AIGA’s Design Leaders Confidence Index inched upward in the fourth quarter of 2012, climbing from 100.51 to 101.72. Given the economic anxiety surrounding the Congressional ultimatum on the “fiscal cliff,” this sustained level of confidence seems to bode well for designers.
NEW YORK—February 5, 2013. A lifetime of achievement in design can take many forms. The 2013
recipients of the AIGA Medal, the highest honor of the design profession,
represent the range of contributions designers make to clients, future
generations and society at large—through inspiration, thoughtful critique,
social impact and the education of future design leaders.
