365 | Design Effectiveness Competition

AIGA’s competitions are widely recognized as the most discerning statement on design excellence today, extending a legacy that began more than 90 years ago. The selections from the “AIGA 365 | Design Effectiveness” competition exemplified the most effective current work in communication design, as chosen by a distinguished jury of design peers.

Through this competition, AIGA created an authoritative chronicle of outstanding design solutions, each demonstrating the process of designing, the role of the designer and the value of design. The selections became part of the AIGA Design Archives, joined the physical archives at the Denver Art Museum and were exhibited in a traveling exhibition that began at the AIGA National Design Center.


Each year’s selections are available in the AIGA Design Archives, and included in the AIGA Design Archives at the Denver Art Museum. The most recent 365 | Design Effectiveness 2011 Exhibition debuted at the AIGA National Design Center in New York.
