NEW YORK–July 2, 2012. This month, six designers join the national board of directors for AIGA, the professional association for design, having been nominated following a national search and elected by a vote of AIGA's professional members. The newest directors represent a range of design disciplines and experiences and will serve one- to three-year terms.
Each of the new directors brings a specific perspective to the board as AIGA plans for the celebration of its centennial in 2014 and positions itself for success for the next 100 years. AIGA welcomes to the board:
Current board members Andrew Blauvelt (Minnesota), Gaby Brink (San Francisco), Drew Davies (Omaha), Phil Hamlett (San Francisco), Deanna Kuhlmann-Leavitt (St. Louis), Susana Rodríguez de Tembleque (San Francisco), Nathan Shedroff (San Francisco), Robin Tooms (Houston) and board president Doug Powell (Minnesota) will continue their service alongside the new directors. Together, they will work to ensure the organization is serving the best interests of designers and members–now, and for the next 100 years. As the new directors assume their roles, AIGA also recognizes those completing their terms of board service on behalf of the design profession:
AIGA sincerely thanks these board members completing their service and welcomes the insights of incoming board members for the 2012-2015 term.
