New York—September 9, 2014. Today AIGA, the professional
association for design, announced the 2014 results of the “Justified:
AIGA Design Competition.” Design firms, in-house design departments,
design entrepreneurs and freelance designers submitted nearly 750 design
projects, making this the most competitive year for AIGA’s annual
design competition. After careful and considered review, the jury
recognized 19 submissions that successfully demonstrate the value of
design based on craft, methodology, execution and impact.
NEW YORK—August 5, 2014. Yathrib Ragsdale mentors minority, first generation, college bound students. Myles Thompson educates his college campus about African American art and culture. And
Kawing Ng manages a Meetup group called VolunteerNY to bring together people who share a common goal of giving back to the community. These talented and dedicated students are among 14 recipients of the 2014–2015 Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships, awarded each year to art and design college students who demonstrate a commitment to social responsibility.
NEW YORK—July 1, 2014. Today five board members and a new presidents council representative join the national board of directors
for AIGA, the professional association for design, following a national
search. Ken Carbone, John Luu, Christopher Simmons, Jill Spaeth, Paul Wharton and Elysia Syriac join the national board, and Su Mathews Hale has been elected to the president-elect position.
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.

AIGA Insight, governance, AIGA news
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.
