AIGA advances design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. As the largest community of design advocates, we bring together practitioners, enthusiasts, and patrons to amplify the voice of design and create the vision for a collective future. We define global standards and ethical practices, guide design education, enhance professional development, and make powerful tools and resources accessible to all.


AIGA, the professional association for design, believes designers serve a critical role as communicators, educators and innovators. AIGA sets the national agenda for the role of design in economic, social, political, cultural and creative contexts. Our mission is to advance designing as a professional craft, strategic tool and vital cultural force.

Founded in 1914, AIGA remains the oldest and largest professional membership organization for design with over 66 chapters and 22,000 members and is a nonprofit, 501©(3) educational institution.
