NEW YORK—July 18, 2013. Five directors and a new chapter presidents representative begin their terms on the national board for AIGA, the professional association for design. Each brings a unique perspective to the board, representing a wide range of disciplines including design entrepreneurship, user experience, design firm operations, design education and social communications—as well as a wealth of experience with AIGA and its history at the national and local levels.
And effective July 15, 2013, Sean Adams, AdamsMorioka (Los Angeles) and Drew Davies, Oxide Design Co. (Omaha), have been elected as co-presidents of AIGA. Adams, a former president, has rejoined the AIGA board of directors on an ex officio basis and will serve a two-year term. Davies, already serving on the board and as national design director of Design for Democracy, will complete the final year of his term in the role of co-president.
As the new directors assume their roles, AIGA recognizes those completing their service on behalf of the design profession.
AIGA sincerely thanks these dedicated design leaders for their service and welcomes each of the new directors to the national board.

Design feedback shouldn't be a painful process. In fact, if it's a painful process, I'd say someone's not doing it right. The most successful projects are usually ones with a collaborative workflow between a well-balanced team of designers, developers, project management, and of course — clients! It's essential to have a healthy feedback process, in which the client knows exactly what feedback is most helpful for the next round of revisions, and the designers and developers know how to translate and solve those problems.
I know, I know, both web teams and people who have hired web teams are out there groaning right now (we get it, and this isn't a soapbox). Everyone has had their fair share of difficult projects and poor communication, but it doesn't have to be that way. In efforts to improve the feedback process for web clients and design teams alike, I'm writing this two-part article about How to Give Good Web Design Feedback, and Turning Client Feedback Into Your Best Work.
