About AIGA Design for Democracy

Starting in 1998, AIGA’s oldest initiative has the mission to apply design tools and thinking to increase civic participation. By making interactions between the U.S. government and its citizens more understandable, efficient, and trustworthy, designers become more vocal citizens and make democracy more sound.

In 2022, we continue to advocate for civic engagement through voter education, registration, and access. We turn design skills and aspirations into tangible actions that can make a difference.

Be Inspired by 2020 Get out the Vote Poster Galleries

AIGA has activated its community of designers across the U.S. and beyond to Get Out the Vote every four years since 2000. The campaign is part of Design for Democracy, an AIGA initiative to increase civic participation through design. In addition to voting, we invite AIGA members to inspire citizens to participate in the 2020 Census and to learn more about mail-in voting.

Get inspired to participate by viewing 2020’s designs.
