AIGA’s mission is to advance design as a professional craft, strategic advantage, and vital cultural force.
AIGA members are the largest global community of designers—and all-around amazing people—who understand that our passion and hard work can improve the world around us, in ways big and small. For everyone.
Through the events that we organize, the initiatives that we run, the content that we publish, the conversations we ignite, and the relationships that we foster, we create opportunities for all of us to learn, inspire, and support each other, at every step of our careers.
Through everything that we do, we champion our beloved profession, and
advocate for design as vital to the cultural, civic, and business development of our local communities, the national landscape, and the world at large.
AIGA is the professional association for design.
About AIGA Philadelphia
In 1981, a group of Philadelphia designers formed AIGA Philadelphia, the first local chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Presently the chapter is comprised of nearly 800 members. AIGA Philadelphia’s purpose is both integral and complementary to the national organization: to provide the highest standards within the profession and the business community and to stimulate interest and understanding of graphic design and visual communication through lectures, exhibitions, and other activities.
