AIGA Learning Solutions for Organizations

Professional Development Learning Solutions for Organizations

In research conducted in 2020 and 2021, AIGA found that new technologies are emerging that will have an impact on the profession. Being cognizant of the future and emerging trends has never been more critical, and not only for the design community but design-centered organizations.

What we found—new technologies such as AI/machine learning (49%), augmented reality/virtual reality (38%), collaborative design software (33%), online behavior tracking/modeling (28%); and telepresence/virtual workplaces (25%) are top emerging trends that will potentially have the biggest impact on the profession.

Respondents also believe the industry will become increasingly digital, mobile, and interactive as well as multifaceted, with designers needing a more diverse set of skills.

AIGA can help organizations lead, innovate, and be future forward with customized solutions.

  • In-company certificates for creatives (or bulk purchases of the certificates in the AIGA learning catalog).
