NEW YORK—July 1, 2013. AIGA, the professional association for design, is hosting a new exhibition called “Estrada: Sailing through design” opening July 17 in New York. Featuring the work of Manuel Estrada, one of the most important designers in Spain, the exhibition focuses on his working process as documented in visual diaries.
“Estrada: Sailing through design” arrives at the AIGA National Design Center following a successful tour through Helsinki, Berlin, Lisbon and Miami. It reveals Estrada’s creative process through ideas, perceptions and first sketches. Visitors will be able to explore his award-winning work from initial idea to final design, seeing the stages in between where concepts and shapes change until reaching a conceptual, contextual and formal result.
The exhibition is also a journey through Spanish culture. Estrada, who has primarily devoted himself to corporate identity and editorial design, has worked for some of the most significant cultural institutions and companies in Spain, including Línea Madrid and Bibliometro projects for the city of Madrid, corporate identities for international companies like Repsol, and literary work such as the Cervantes Prize brand, design of gastronomy magazine Spain Gourmetour and illustrations for books by Nobel Prize–winning author José Saramago. Through Estrada’s designs, we encounter the writers, institutions and events that are at the core of contemporary Spanish life.
“Estrada: Sailing through design” will be on view from July 17 through October 11 at the AIGA National Design Center, located at 164 Fifth Avenue in New York City. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
AIGA, the professional association for design, advances design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. As the largest community of design advocates, AIGA brings together practitioners, enthusiasts and patrons to amplify the voice of design and creates the vision for a collective future.

“Estrada: Sailing through design” is an
exhibition structured around graphic designer Manuel Estrada’s
visual diaries, which he uses to register his working process including ideas, perceptions and first sketches.
After much deliberation and lively discourse, the AIGA board voted yesterday to proceed with negotiations to sell the AIGA national headquarters building at 164 Fifth Avenue in New York. The national board, advisory board, chapter leadership, medalists, past presidents, past board members and general membership were all part of this conversation, and the debate on the issue has been essential to our decision making process.
NEW YORK—November 15, 2013. This
week AIGA, the professional association for design, announced the 2013
results of “Justified: AIGA Design Competition.” Nearly 300 design projects were submitted to the annual competition, to
be judged on strength, concept, impact, methodology and success of
formal execution and aesthetics.
NEW YORK—November 12, 2013. AIGA’s Design Leaders Confidence Index dropped slightly in the third quarter of 2013 to settle at 95.94, down from the previous quarter’s 100.02. At the same time, design leaders are optimistic about a solid (if not growing) future.
