Take advantage of the many benefits that come with being an AIGA member: savings, information, community, inspiration and more.
I’m sure many of us know at least one person who’s paused in awe on their five- or ten-year anniversary at a company and wondered aloud, “How have I been here so long without realizing it?” We often live with blinders on, looking straight ahead for long periods of time without so much as glancing around us.
