NEW YORK—March 25, 2010. AIGA, the professional
association for design, announced this week that five new
individuals will assume positions on its national board of
directors beginning in July. AIGA's 15-member board is elected by
its professional members and plays a crucial role in determining
the mission of AIGA, ensuring that the organization continues to
operate in the best interest of past, present and future
“These individuals reflect a wide range of skills, experience
and diversity that will be a huge asset to AIGA,” said Richard
Grefé, AIGA's executive director. “Their dedication to sustainable
practices, engaging young designers, education, entrepreneurship
and the pursuit of a more global design perspective will help the
board meet the needs of our membership over the next three

The annual nominating
process for the AIGA Board of Directors is designed to
identify, encourage and enlist the active participation of
dedicated professionals in the service of AIGA at a leadership
level. A nominating committee made up principally of AIGA
members—this year led by Traci Moore Clay of AIGA St. Louis and
comprised of Agustin Garza, Sherra Bell, Sam Shelton and Josh
Silverman—reviewed recommendations from AIGA members, chapter
leadership and design opinion leaders in late 2009. AIGA members
ratified the slate earlier this month by confirming the nominating
committee's selections through online voting. To learn more about
AIGA governance, visit www.aiga.org/board-and-governance.
AIGA, the professional association for design, stimulates
thinking about design, demonstrates the value of design and
empowers the success of designers at each stage of their careers.
AIGA's mission is to advance designing as a professional craft,
strategic tool and vital cultural force. Founded in 1914, AIGA
remains the oldest and largest professional membership organization
for design, and is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) educational institution.
Today AIGA serves more than 20,000 members through 65 chapters and
200 student groups.

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.
