Since then, it has developed into a national network of skilled designers, educators, students, and fans. AIGA aims to help individuals in business, the media, and the government understand how vital design and designers are. It also works to improve professional growth, promote the value of design, and set worldwide conventions and moral guidelines.Read More →
