Since its founding in 1914, AIGA has celebrated design excellence within the profession. Today, research shows design and design thinking are essential to innovation; design is at the heart of successful businesses. And we know competitions are a valuable benefit to our members. Competitions at the national, regional, and local level have been instrumental in identifying emerging and hidden talent within the design community, recognizing effective visual design solutions in the marketplace, and communicating the added value of design to adjacent industries around the world. As the largest contemporary membership association for design we are committed to creating and restoring pathways for you to get your latest work out in front of those you care about most—to help you stand out from the competition, reach wider markets, and fuel growth in your career.
365: AIGA Year in Design is a 360-degree view of design over 365 days. This competition publicly celebrates designers, design teams, and their clients for effectively working together to design creative solutions for challenges presented by businesses and organizations. Designers are key to solving complex problems, especially now as companies large and small are forced to adapt, pivot, or reinvent themselves to stay relevant. As your professional association, we want to celebrate your diversity, your resilience, and your brilliance. That’s why we’re bringing back 365: AIGA Year in Design.
