What is AIGA doing and why? While its mission is to advance designing as a professional craft, strategic tool and vital cultural force, the motivations behind AIGA’s actions may not immediately be so clear. AIGA Insights reveal the thought processes behind key organizational decisions and creates a dialogue with members and the broader design community.
AIGA Executive Director Richard Grefé also maintains a blog at grefe.tumblr.com, a sketchpad of notes and ideas on design.
Richard Grefé is the executive director of AIGA, the professional association for design. He is generally involved in all of AIGA’s activities, although his major contributions are in strategy, formulating new initiatives to enhance the competitive success of designers and advocating the value of design.

Five nominees for AIGA’s national board of directors were selected by a nominating committee, based on recommendations from AIGA members, chapter leadership and design opinion leaders. Members at the Trustee, Design Leader and Sustaining Member levels approved the slate in April 2014.
The AIGA national board of directors will meet on April 24 in New York to receive recommendations from the strategic planning, finance, governance and communication committees; to review a new membership campaign in progress; and to review the charge for the Nominating and Awards committees.
Each year, AIGA provides a report of
activities and accomplishments to members and stakeholders; the current
report is shown here in full.
