Section: About AIGA -
By now there must be few
people who are unaware of the recent uproar surrounding the University of
California’s rebranding effort. Seldom does
the media take such an active interest in design, so it was disheartening that they got their reporting so very wrong. The outcome
of that misreporting—fueled by an online petition and fanned by our very own
design community—has set back the course of design and cheated the university out of a progressive new identity.
Section: Why Design
Tibor Kalman, founder of the design firm M&Co, left behind scores of design artifacts but is remembered more for his critiques on the nature of consumption and production than for his formal studio achievements. He enlarged the parameters of design from service to cultural force, for which he received an AIGA Medal in 1999.
