As the profession’s oldest and largest professional membership organization for design, we advance design as a professional craft, strategic advantage, and vital cultural force. From content that defines the global practice to events that connect and catalyze, we work to enhance the value and deepen the impact of design across all disciplines on business, society, and our collective future.

Since its founding in 1914, AIGA has celebrated design excellence through awards and competitions. The AIGA Awards program honors design leaders, forward-thinking corporations, and prolific writers for their unique and outstanding contributions to the profession. AIGA members are invited to submit nominations.
