Started 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.
“Civic engagement is part of the heart of design. Making information, especially voter information, accessible and understandable strengthens and enhances our democracy,” said AIGA Executive Director, Bennie F. Johnson. In 2020, 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.
