What can designers do to change the world? A lot. In this video, hear from leaders in the AIGA community about the importance of design in solving society’s trickiest and most pressing problems, see examples of how individuals, chapters and companies are already making a difference, and learn more about the ways in which you, and designers everywhere, can get involved in Design for Good—a movement to ignite, accelerate and amplify design-driven social change.

Design for Good is made possible by the generous support of our partners who recognize the important role of design in making real and powerful social change.
Looking for additional ways to design for good? This list of organizations and programs is a great place to start. There are many more opportunities out there—so if you know of a resource we should add here let us know!

Americans have become great at ignoring charity appeals. To help a local food bank tap a new donor base during difficult economic times, this campaign took a popular assumption—that “nothing could end hunger”—and redefined it as the solution, turning “Nothing” into a food brand.
