About Michele Cooper
A long-time advocate for graphic design and the power of community, Michele has been involved with the Philadelphia chapter of AIGA since 1999. Her career has been defined by her belief that good graphic design can change the world and by her commitment to the community of professionals who share her passion. In 2006, she founded Cooper Graphic Design with her husband, Gavin. Their work together has been widely recognized for its distinctive style and strategic insight.

Michele is also known locally and nationally for her tireless activism on behalf of women’s rights in the United States through many initiatives including her collaboration with Kelly Holohan on We the Women

About We the Women
We the Women is a visual initiative made up of female, female-identifying, and non-binary designers who are bringing awareness to the general public focused on women’s rights in the United States of America. Designers and organizers, Michele Cooper and Kelly Holohan, asked women designers to contribute their talents in the form of poster designs. Each designer’s unique perspective is represented in the collection and is a response to the attacks on women’s rights.


About the AIGA Fellow Award
The AIGA Fellow Award is the highest honor an AIGA chapter can bestow upon one of its members. It is a means of recognizing designers who have made a significant contribution to raising the standards of excellence in practice and conduct within our local and regional design community as well as in our Philadelphia AIGA chapter. The areas of education, writing, leadership, and reputation, as well as the practice of design are given equal consideration in measuring significant contribution.


About AIGA Philadelphia
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. The Philadelphia chapter was founded in 1981. We are a 100% volunteer-powered nonprofit organization.
