2018 AIGA Awards Gala

Join us as we celebrate the 2018 Medalists in recognition of their exceptional achievements, services or other contributions to the field of design and visual communication.

Proceeds benefit essential programs from AIGA that provide access, education, and preservation of design through educational and networking events; design resources such as the AIGA Design Archives and the Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships; and original editorial and digital content. The Gala makes it possible for AIGA to support designers at every stage of their career.
