Part of the Open AIGA series, which aims to meet members’ expectations for openness and transparency.
In this session, AIGA executive director Richard Grefé introduced two documents and other resources that represent the basic principles guiding ethical behavior in the profession:
Richard Grefé, AIGA executive director
Grefé is the executive director of AIGA, the professional association
for design. He is generally involved in all of AIGA’s activities,
although his major contributions are in strategy, formulating new
initiatives to enhance the competitive success of designers and
advocating the value of design.
On November 29 2012, Richard Grefé hosted this webcast about the AIGA Standards of Professional Practice and
Standard Form of Agreement. Many important topics were discussed, as
well as some great resources and information that we would like to share with
The Standards of Professional Practice can be
found at http://www.aiga.org/standards-professional-practice/ and The Standard Form of agreement can be found at http://www.aiga.org/standard-agreement/.
There is also a relevant article about
professional organizations and codes of ethical conduct posted on this
site: "Ethics and Social Responsibility." In addition, AIGA has been working to provide contract-related education over the past few years:
AIGA chapters often host events based
on AIGA practice management content, such as workshops at the
2011 Minnesota Design Camp: "Understanding Copyright and Trademark
Essentials" and "Negotiating Fair Contracts." To see upcoming events in your area, visit the Events page or your local chapter’s website.
We hope you find this information helpful and that it answers
some questions that came up during the webcast.
To meet members’
expectations for openness and transparency, AIGA produces a webcast series about what AIGA is doing, why and how—and give members an opportunity to ask questions.
