Thank you to everyone who joined us April 15. Stay tuned for info regarding the 2017 AIGA Awards Gala.

Relive the night with our video recording of the 2016 AIGA Awards Gala above, pictures from the evening and the photobooth (slideshow below), and our Medalists videos and essays celebrating their achievements and contributions to design.

The AIGA Gala is our annual celebration to honor the distinguished practitioners, educators and role models whose creativity, intelligence, perception, and skill have inspired and shaped the entire design profession. Proceeds from the event benefit Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships, and the AIGA Legacy Fund.

The 2016 AIGA Awards Gala event was co-chaired by Dana Arnett of VSA Partners and Su Mathews Hale of Lippincott, and took place on Friday, April 15, 2016 at Pier Sixty, 23rd Street and the West Side Highway, New York City.
