  • Videos from the 2011 AIGA Design Conference

    Every two years, hundreds of designers make plans to attend the AIGA Design Conference. Why? This single gathering connects them with people and ideas on the leading edge of the design profession, addressing the challenges and issues that matter most. The 2011 “Pivot: AIGA Design Conference” conference was no exception.

    In October 2011, “Pivot” drew more than 1,500 designers, educators and students to Phoenix for a three-day event focused on the changing nature of the design industry. Through inspiring sessions, practical workshops and in-depth discussion, attendees and presenters explored the shifts prompting changes in society, the economy and culture—and learned how to prepare for the complexities of the future.
