Celebrating 35 Years of AIGA Philadelphia

This year marks 35 years since the founding of AIGA Philadelphia. In 1981, a group of Philadelphia designers formed AIGA Philadelphia—the first local chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. The chapter has grown from 25 original members into a thriving community of over 700 members today.

About the 35x35 Commemorative Posters

To mark this milestone occasion, we invited 35 influential Philadelphia-area designers and those that have played a significant role in the history of our chapter to design posters for a commemorative collection and exhibition. The theme of the posters is the role of design in Philadelphia and the important influence AIGA has had, and continues to have, on our local design community.

A limited number of these posters will be for sale at First Friday.
