NEW YORK—July 6, 2011. AIGA and Adobe® announce the
launch of Design Envy, a daily blog
featuring the best in design as chosen by a different curator each week.
Guest curators will be encouraged to share their “wish I’d done that”
discoveries—recent design that’s so creative, inspiring and effective, they
wish they had designed it themselves. While the curators are selected by AIGA,
the professional association for design, the envy-inducing work curators choose
to celebrate is entirely up to them.
Design Envy selections are chosen by designers, for
designers, and will draw from all design disciplines. Each day, the week’s
curator will post a new example to inspire and inform—through imagery,
compelling descriptions about effectiveness, and the creative minds behind the
The first round of curators includes:
The most popular entries, as determined by votes from the
community, will become a special collection in the AIGA Design Archives—the richest
online resource for those who practice, study and appreciate great design.
With all the blogs and image-sharing sites already in
existence, why launch Design Envy? In short, the wide range of excellent work
happening in the profession doesn’t always come through in AIGA’s traditional channels
and publications—nor has there been a consistent way to discuss and interact
with the selections until now.
“Competitions and design annuals are inspiring tools, yet
they’re inherently limiting since the work chosen is entirely dependent upon
the work submitted,” explained Richard Grefé, executive director of AIGA. “We
developed Design Envy to expand the range of voices contributing to design
discussions, and to heighten the level of visual inspiration provided by
So should visitors to the site be, quite literally, envious?
“Seeing a daily post of
great design may incur a twinge of envy,” noted David Rich, Adobe’s director of product marketing for design. “We trust that the envy is short-lived, and that
the work shown on Design Envy will inspire contemplation, lively discussion,
and instill the drive to be even better.”
Visit designenvy.org to
get inspired, discuss the entries and vote on your favorites.

at “Gain” to consider many facets of the design of business for the
New York—September 23, 2014. Next week, AIGA, the professional
association for design, opens “Dan Friedman: Radical Modernist”—a
vibrant and inspiring retrospective of a designer who pioneered New Wave
design while carving his own path from academia to corporate design,
experimental European commissions and AIDS activism in the East Village
art scene. This exhibition is organized and designed by AIGA Medalist
Chris Pullman and Laura Varrachi of LVCK Environmental Graphics with
support from Dan Friedman's brother Ken Friedman.
New York, NY—September 25, 2014. AIGA and Wacom announce the launch of “Rise & Shine,”
a new video series that goes behind the scenes of the diverse practices
of six up-and-coming communication designers. Viewers are invited to
travel across the United States with AIGA, the professional association
for design, and Wacom, the leading producer of intuitive design tools,
to visit a range of talented, emerging designers working today and find
out what fuels their creativity. The series offers a closer look at
everything from creative processes and big career breaks to the
techniques and technology they use to realize their visions.
NEW YORK—September 18, 2014. AIGA, Design Observer and Designers & Books today published results of the 2013 “50 Books/50 Covers” competition. A panel of jurors including Michael Bierut, partner at the New York design firm Pentagram; Jessica Helfand, founding editor of Design Observer; and Peter Mendelsund, associate art director of Alfred A. Knopf Books chose 50 outstanding books and 50 exceptional covers.
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.
