AIGA is grateful to the following sponsors who actively support AIGA and its activities. In addition, we are thankful for the enabling support provided by our alliance partners.
Official AIGA sponsors
AIGA’s official sponsors, Adobe and IBM, make significant investments in AIGA, and in turn support activities we would not be able to pursue alone. Their support is critical to AIGA’s full range of programs each year and represents a substantial and sustained investment in the future of design and the design profession.
As AIGA’s Official AIGA Sponsor for Design Solutions, Adobe creates innovative programs that give members a voice and engage the creative community in dialogues about design and technology.
As AIGA’s Official AIGA Sponsor for Design Leadership, IBM offers the opportunity to strengthen its relationship with AIGA’s powerful creative communities by engaging IBM leaders to deploy their expertise across AIGA's network.
Presenting sponsors play a critical role by investing in a single national AIGA event or initiative that AIGA develops for its members. Frequently, these activities would not be possible without the support of the presenting sponsor.
The Creative Group
The Creative Group (TCG)—a leader in matching creative talent with the best companies—is the Presenting Sponsor of INitiative, a new AIGA national program that provides knowledge and tools to help in-house designers make a greater impact at their companies, evolve professionally and connect with a broader network of peers.
LG—a leader in consumer electronics, home appliances, mobile, and commercial units—is a Presenting Sponsor of two major AIGA programs: the 2014 "Gain: AIGA Design and Business Conference" and the 2015 AIGA Awards. This partnership underscores LG's commitment to the design industry and enables them to share innovative new technologies developed specifically for designers.
Program and event sponsors
Program and event sponsors contribute to the resources necessary for AIGA to provide specific individual programs and events to its members, to the broader design community or to the public.
