AIGA selectively forges relationships with
forward-thinking brands that understand and are invested in the transformative
power of design. A number of opportunities exist, from Official Sponsorship, which
provides high impact, year-long recognition, to a variety of Program
Sponsorships offering tailored messaging.
As the world’s largest and most influential design
association in the world, AIGA represents more than 26,000 members and the
country's 300,000 designers look to AIGA as an authority, resource and
advocate. Getting involved as a sponsor connects you directly with your target
audience—design trendsetters and decision makers with purchasing power.
“For those who only thought AIGA was a place to meet book designers
(which, it should be noted, it still is),
AIGA [is] positioning design as a tool for systems-thinking, problem-solving,
and creating real change.”--Alissa Walker, Fast Company
“The Adobe and AIGA partnership has fostered a multi-faceted dialogue with the design community. It connects designers to each other, to their craft, to new jobs, and to evolving technologies. This lively conversation is our backdrop for creating tools that advance and advocate great design.”
--Jane Brady, Director of Product Marketing, Creative Cloud (Design and Web), Adobe
