AIGA Raleigh Celebrates the AIGA Centennial
\ May 11, 2014
“In 2014, AIGA turns 100! Established in 1914 as an institute dedicated to the graphic arts, AIGA’s focus and reach have continually expanded. From 40 founders to 24,000 members and from a New York club to a nationwide network, what began as the old guard of a new profession has become a rich and active community embracing diverse and rapidly changing expressions of design.” ~aiga.org/centennial
At AIGA Raleigh, we have much to celebrate and to be proud of. Formed in 1986 as the eighth in the country (out of the sixty-seven currently in existence), our chapter champions design’s ability, design’s impact, and design’s critical place in uniting people. We advocate for design as a driving force in social and economic change, as a way of life, as a pursuit to shape the best kind of experience. The Raleigh chapter embodies the evolution of experience that design stands for as we implement an open-source model of organization whereby our activities are shaped and designed by the participants in the process.
