NEW YORK—May 23, 2018. AIGA, the professional association for design, is partnering with The Creative Group, a specialized staffing service for creative, digital and marketing talent, on a nationwide career development program. The new undertaking, Design Career Compass, was established to help managers attract and retain top creative talent, designers find fulfilling jobs and advance in their careers, and AIGA members at all levels of their career journey build leadership skills.

“We teamed up with AIGA in 2012 to develop In-house INitiative, a program to support in-house designers, and we’re so proud of the progress we’ve made,” said Diane Domeyer, executive director of The Creative Group. “Beyond the in-house sector, we felt there was an opportunity for us to better serve the broader creative audience. Design Career Compass will provide 360-degree career support to all designers so they can find fulfillment and success at work and in their communities.”

“Design, like every other profession, has been buffeted by the forces of change,” added Julie Anixter, executive director of AIGA. “We share a commitment with The Creative Group and Diane Domeyer to empower designers to grow and succeed in the endless variations of design that are represented in today’s businesses, government, and society at large.”
