    I agree that part of the standard should be revised to include Design for Good and other non-profit work that designers contribute, but AIGA's goal (in my mind anyways) with Design for Good is to encourage and develop designers into entrepreneurial minded professionals that tap into their creative side in a way that most business owners don't know how, and solve problems. I also believe AIGA has found the most liberating definition of a designer through the definition of entrepreneurial spirit. I think the biggest issue that we all take with the JOBS poster competition is its content and meaning, and then hypocritical approach to obtain promotion.
